2013 Top 5 Rising Chefs in the U.S. "




As we travel the landscapes of culinary creativity we’ve uncovered bold, new talent heating up the stoves across America, from the Big Apple to the Peach State, down the bayous of the Big Easy and stretching out to Pacific shores. Five top toques under 30 are hot on the trail forging new passions and fresh ideas, while still upholding the best standards of tradition. We salute their long hours of apprenticeship, their hard climb up the kitchen ladder, and their commitment to looking ever forward when they reach the top.
