Audi’s commitment to entrepreneurship is demonstrated in the all-new, completely reimagined Q3.
Audi is celebrating their all-new Q3 in a unique way by hosting a first-of-its-kind culinary experience with award-winning chefs and restaurant owners. With less than six percent of all head chefs in the U.S. being women, Audi and the James Beard Foundation are highlighting the conversation around opportunities for women in the culinary world by providing them a platform to showcase their artistry. Each of the featured chefs in the Audi Culinary Dinner series are entrepreneurs making an impact both in their communities and far beyond to inspire future chefs and culinary leaders. In each city, the Audi Culinary Dinner series (called PROOF) operates one seating per night for four nights. The first was Nashville in July, followed by Pittsburgh, then Minneapolis, and next up Chef Daniela Soto-Innes will be cooking up something special in Seattle from September 10-13. The chef partner behind the internationally renowned Cosme and sister restaurant ATLA in New York City, Soto-Innes was recently named World’s Best Female Chef.
In collaboration with OpenTable, a limited number of reservations are available for consumers in each of the participating markets and guests who make a reservation at PROOF also have the opportunity to sign up for a test drive of the all-new Audi Q3 SUV. Each of these unique cities perfectly complements the completely reimagined Audi Q3 and each chef is a creative voice who pushes boundaries to shatter expectations of what is possible in their profession, a perfect pairing to Audi’s spirit of holding nothing back. With the Q3’s all-new powertrain, standard quattro® all-wheel drive, bold new exterior design, and improved interior with thoughtful functionality, the vehicle is a strong entry to the Audi brand and a perfect all-around vehicle for any aspiring entrepreneur.
“The James Beard Foundation is pleased to partner with Audi to inspire and support women to step into more positions of leadership in the culinary community. Investing in these women will make it easier for others to become executive chefs, own their own businesses and inspire generations to come,” said Katherine Miller, James Beard Foundation.
