What is the meaning of home for those who don’t have one – and can high-end gastronomy help meet the needs of homeless people?

Discover the inside story of how 60 of the world’s most renowned chefs came together to offer a soup kitchen with a difference, cooking with food waste from Expo2015 in Milan.

Massimo Bottura, widely regarded as one of the best chefs in the world, set up the Refettorio as a beautifully designed space offering 80 people a night the opportunity to dine with dignity.

How this high-profile initiative fared against the complex realities of homelessness and social inequality is explored through revealing interviews with the chefs and the diners, offering a candid exploration of the cultural, social and spiritual value of the nourishment we can offer one another.
