Food is energy. Food is love.Delicacies believes all food has unique, intrinsic energies, and if you’ve ever eaten a home-cooked meal, you know that food is love. Our mission is to harness the energy and love present in our simple, beautiful ingredients to help ALL of us.
We’re partnering with generous, high-profile chefs who share our mutual love of food to fight hunger. Every piece of Delicacies Jewelry purchased creates “Delicacies Dollars” — that is, money donated directly to a nonprofit organization that fights hunger and food insecurity.
Each year, Delicacies partners with four well-known, talented chefs who comprise our Chef’s Table, the conduit for our charitable giving, and each chef chooses a charity and one of our ingredients that is near and dear to his or her heart.
At the perennial head of Delicacies' Chef’s Table sits Andrew Zimmern: chef, traveler, TV host, culinary thought leader — and someone we are honored to call a dear friend. As our Chief Giving Officer, Andrew curates our Chef’s Table, making our giving as impactful as possible.
As a woman-owned company and in homage to strong women around the world, Delicacies is proud to announce an all-female Chef’s Table for 2017-2018.

Fifty percent of the proceeds of each chef’s chosen ingredient — as well as 10 percent of every other Delicacies purchase — is donated to our chefs’ hunger-related organizations. We tally all the donations and make equal donations to each of our four chef’s charities at the end of the 12-month period.
