One of San Diego’s own, Executive Chef and Co-Founder of Wrench and Rodent, The Plot, and Shootz Fish and Beer — Davin Waite — has been awarded the California Travel Association Sustainability Advocate Award!

The only chef recognized in California

The California Travel Association (formerly CalTIA) is the influential, unified advocacy voice for the travel and tourism industry in California. It protects and advances the interests and investments of California’s travel industry through advocacy, collaboration, and education.

The 2022 CalTravel Awards recognize extraordinary individuals and organizations whose leadership efforts have significantly impacted California’s travel and tourism industry. 

Of the 9 tourism awards bestowed, Davin was the only chef recognized in the state of California!

The Sustainability Advocate Award recognizes a person or organization that has successfully reduced waste, improved recycling, or managed travel impacts in a way that inspires others to improve their own practices.

A well-deserved award for Chef Davin Waite

Chef Davin Waite epitomizes the sustainability ethos; it is genuinely a part of every aspect of his being, including cooking. He embraces total utilization and zero waste cooking and dedicates time and resources to volunteer and educate people on this subject matter whenever possible: other chefs, culinary professionals, or youth at the local elementary schools.

Congrats Chef Davin!

Congratulations on the well-deserved recognition!

The CalTravel Awards will be presented at the organization’s 39th Annual California Travel Summit, held October 3-5, 2022, in Palm Desert, CA. Find more details about the award here.
