Highlight of my trip to South America was cooking for 50 people ..homeless and born unlucky .. Although it was too less compared to the gravity of the situation .. I wish I could do more !!! I wish I could change this situation I wish I had the power.. but one thing I realized was although I wasn’t born homeless I was born is a difficult family situation where poverty was not a daily discussion we lived happily we lived in peace and we lived with dignity ... I just request all to look at poor or underprivileged with dignity and respect., they have more self respect than many of us and they live happily even if they don’t know what they will eat or where they will stay and please don’t create poverty as a tourism rather give them an equal space in the society and opportunity to live a normal life !!!!! Just treating them for 1 lucky 50 diners is mockery of my life I wish I could do this on daily basis My mom says “REAL CHARITY IS WHEN YOU DO IT AND DONT TELL 🤐” #gaggan#gagganinbrazil#worlds50best#gastromotiva#givepridetopoor

I couldn’t be happier for @mzmariscal being named one of @forbes #30under30. If things are better at our restaurants...you can bet that Marguerite helped set things in motion and kept things on track. One of the hardest working, most thoughtful and coolest people I’ve ever been around. She represents the very best of Momofuku. #boss#nescacrules

🙏🏻 @jorgevallejo @alefloresn for this amazing morning market tour and finishing with learning of how to make mole its such a eye opener for me that India 🇮🇳 and Mexico 🇲🇽 are so connected with Ingridients and cuisine the cross pollination of spices from India to Mexico and tomatoes and fresh chilies from Mexico to India is most evident in this recipe of a Mole, 26 items including tortilla raisins nuts cumin cinnamon chocolate sugar sesame cookies and the amazing chilies (without the seed) creates a blend of explosive flavors Tomorrow @jorgevallejo from @rest_quintonil and gaggan team @rydoanton89 @francescaferreyros @julenfernandezsanz @jorge_big22 with combine this blend in attempt to make a curry of mole never done before .... more pictures to come from this Latin America tour with @pigatemypizza @markokovac @drula9 soon when I get the time to download everything #latin50best#quintonil#jorgevallejo#gaggan#gagganinmexico#worlds50best
Invulnerable -people with their bad childhood either have a disaster in adulthood or become amazing in what they do I met this group of musicians @orquestra_de_rua yesterday and their story touched me in a big way .. they formed this Music group to earn enough to eat in a pizzeria .. the tragedy of life is till now they haven't have a whole pizza To themselves Can u imagine we who are born lucky or by our hard work become lucky sometimes forget our pasts or humans around us These people are born poor they were unlucky and they are trying hard to be lucky, they wanna be musicians famous and wanna buy a whole pizza for themselves The most amazing thing is they have more dignity and respect and happiness then many of us, Today I feel so incomplete and helpless that in this path of success I forgot where I come From, what's our worth when we can't help those who need our help, we value life's with color with creed with nationality and certain life's who don't consider to be human enough. I hired them to play for my pop up and all they asked was 200 R$ (65us$) although we did what we had to do but I don't think I personally did enough it's shameful that I cook for luxury and can't provide enough food these guys There dreams are simple a whole 🍕 to themselves, to become famous, and to have better 🎻 etc.. If you live in Rio or Brazil or anywhere in world and love simple humans try supporting them from where ever they are sometimes u don't have to help when it's a disaster all they need is respect love and a pizza or violin 🎻 just contact them @orquestra_de_rua #helpwhoneedhelp#lasai#gaggan
There goes my hero Watch him as he goes There goes my hero He's ordinary Kudos, my hero Leaving all the best You know my hero The one that's on ... 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 @alexatala For inspiration and love of food ur my hero #dom#gaggan#latin50best#worlds50best#cheftableseries

We have the ability to touch many guests daily in our restaurants. To give back to those in need due to the most recent disaster; we will contribute a portion of our Napa and Sonoma wine sales to The Napa Sonoma Relief Fund. The #napasonomarelieffund will support those affected most by this immeasurable devastation in the recent firestorm. We have partnered with Tipping Point to ensure that the dollars are used in a rapid and effective way. I encourage guests to #drinknapasonoma and for restauranteurs to join me in this important effort for the Napa and Sonoma Valley. #drinknapasonoma#napasonomarelieffund#haveaglassforus (Link in bio)
This was delicious and looked like a foreign primordial soup: the great @rodneyscottsbbq whole hog for @southernsmoketx fundraiser, which raised $500k for relief efforts. Amazing event. Lucky to have taken part in it. @cshepherd13 and the whole team knocked it out of the park. Go Astros.
Support our friends at @tacombi for a last minute out-door relief event for Mexico Earthquake Relief ( mostly Puebla and Oaxaca, the areas that did not make the news where many of our city's hospitality workforce hail from ) …. its come together with a full on setup for tomorrow just under the Williamsburg Bridge - an all you can eat taco-feast with cerveza, mezcal, music and more for $60/person - tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance via event brite. Now that the news cycle has past them and the coverage has slowed to a trickle, Tacombi is continuing its role in rallying the support needed through ongoing reconstruction efforts.
After a week full of devastation and heartbreak, we are reopening @_tfl_ today; we look forward to welcoming guests back to Yountville. Although the fires now have greater containment, there is much to be done in the Napa and Sonoma valleys. Our hearts are heavy for those have lost so much. Thank you to the first responders, firefighters and law enforcement. #drinknapasonomawine#napafires
To all of our customers and clients, neighbors, partners and staff of all of our restaurant properties in Yountville. We thank you for all of your concerns and outreach. Everyone is working hard to normalize our situation in these extreme times. The current fire condition in Yountville remains unchanged. The town of Yountville reports that the Partrick and Nuns Fire on Mt. Veeder has grown more active and the smoke volume has significantly increased and is much more visible. We continue to monitor, and if conditions change we will update you. We are here to offer whatever comfort and sense of community that we can. Currently we are operating with the following schedules with collective efforts from our combined local restaurant teams: • The bakery is opened daily from 7:00am through 5:00pm • Bouchon is opened daily 11:30am – 8:30pm • Ad Hoc will reopen Sunday, October 16th for dinner service • The French Laundry will reopen on Tuesday, October 17th for dinner service If you are in the area and your local agency uses Nixle - text your zipcode to 888-777 to opt-in to receive fire condition updates.
Update as of 10.11.2017 12:00pm: The overnight brought additional evacuations both north and west of Yountville city limits, and our thoughts are with our neighbors and staff who have had to relocate. We opened the bakery this morning and please stop in for some complimentary hot coffee if you are heading up or down valley and are in need. Bouchon Bistro has opened its doors for lunch and plans to remain opened for dinner; as long as there is a need, and or staff is not in harms way. Ad Hoc plans to open tomorrow evening given the same conditions. The French Laundry remains closed until further notice. We will update you if anything changes. If you are in the area and your local agency uses @Nixle - text your zipcode to 888-777 to opt-in to receive fire condition updates.
To all of our customers and clients, neighbors, partners and restaurant staff. We are currently safe in the town of Yountville and are sending thoughts and prayers for all those greatly affected by the fires in Napa, Sonoma and all areas of northern California. Our restaurants in Yountville have limited resources, yet are here to support and provide sustenance and comfort to those in the area whether visitors or locals. Bouchon Bakery is opened today as long as we need to be, and Bouchon Bistro will open at 5:00pm with a limited menu and local staff. Please visit us there. The French Laundry will be closed this evening and Ad Hoc will resume for service as normally scheduled on Thursday evening.

Our thoughts go out to our neighbors and others affected by these devastating fires. Our #yountville restaurants and bakery are closed today due to the valley-wide power outages. Our teams are looking forward to welcoming guests as soon the situation improves. Please stay safe.
