2006 – São Paulo. The beginning of Gastromotiva.
David Hertz, Ernani Gouvea and Uridéia Andrade co-created the organization’s first format: A social buffet. Within a short time, what began in a home kitchen needed more counter space, stoves and structure. Then, Universidade Anhembi Morumbi opened its doors allowing more young people living in situations of socioeconomic exclusion to participate free of charge in the Professional Cook Training.
