Welcome to our website, here at the Culinary Crossroads of America!

Culinary Crossroads is an organization that shines a spotlight on the people, products, places and services that define Indiana’s culinary landscape and help make Indiana the place where people want to live, work and play. Our mission is to create content and initiatives that promote education and awareness about our culinary community and to amplify the voices that support this underlying goal.

While you’ve probably heard of “Hoosier Hospitality” – our state’s reputation for friendliness is certainly well deserved – you may not have thought of Indiana as a place with great food, rock star chefs, award-winning specialty products and outstanding culinary destinations. But here at Culinary Crossroads, we help people see Indiana in a way that maybe even longtime residents haven’t seen it before. After all, we’re at the Culinary Crossroads of America. We’ve got something special here in Indiana, and we can’t wait to fill you in.

Through our web content, social media and initiatives that promote community and collaboration, Culinary Crossroads is helping to grow a more robust statewide culinary culture by showcasing the restaurants, chefs, competitive cooks, farmers, producers and purveyors that define Indiana food.

And for businesses and corporate recruiters, we hope CulinaryCrossroads.org can provide one more way to show what Indiana has to offer!
