Flynn Fleischer is the Jerry Garcia of chefs, even missing his middle finger on his right hand. He is a large man in stature, jovial & kind natured. Of German descent & from a long line of butchers in Brooklyn, he has the need for neighborhood connection & loves walking the streets of cities he visits to find chefs & bring light to their experience. He is often seen breaking bread at street cafes & food trucks.
Although he grew up a Butcher's son, his major food influences were from his mother and grandmother & their hearty cooking.
Fleischer never forgets a name or face. He is not private but doesn’t want publicity. He believes there should always be music playing while cooking. He learned to play jazz while working at a tiny restaurant on Tchouptoulas St. in New Orleans. Since then, he's mastered over 40 instruments. He supports live & local music & frequents shows in dive bars around the world. Fleischer knows food & is always looking for personal connection & experience.Linkedin

Fleischer & Wolf met on one of Fleischer’s neighborhood walks in Charleston, South Carolina. Wolf was working at a farm to table restaurant, named The Earth. They hit it off immediately and after a night out at Charleston’s Music Farm for some live music they decided to join forces. They set out to find the best tools for creating food and flavor throughout the world and make them available for everyone. Wolf was especially frustrated at the cost of great cookware. Having come from very little and learning to cook great meals on almost anything from stone and clay pots to ancient ovens, he believes that everyone should have access to great affordable cookware. Since joining forces, the pair who are rarely seen together have enlisted their rich connections and friends from around the world to form almost a secret society of chefs and foodies known as the Secret Society for Food (SSF). They find new tools and foods to provide for people everywhere. This includes products, cooking secrets and recipes from around the world. Their goal is to build the world’s largest data base of recipes, secrets and cookware that are geographically specific and readily available. The mission of Fleischer and Wolf is to give food lovers access to the tools, the food itself and the knowledge of how to prepare great meals. Fleischer and Wolf are tired of the celebrity chefs and choose to not be in the limelight. Instead they choose food over fame and feature other chefs and cooks like the members of SSF in their press and videos. You will never see their image as “It’s not about them… it’s about the food.” They despise the fame and avoid it at all cost, which often leaves consumers and fans asking “Who is Fleischer and Wolf?”
