As usual, our members have been doing some pretty fantastic things this week!
- Chef Peter Davis of Henrietta’s Table in Boston, winner of our “Sustainer of the Year” Sustainability Award, is featured in Stuff Magazine. Read all about “The Sage of Sustainability” and learn how Chef Davis supports small producers while sourcing the freshest and best ingredients possible.
- In Chicago, Chefs Collaborative board chair Chef Bruce Sherman of North Pond Restaurant teamed up with other chefs, farmers, distributors and advocacy groups to discuss sustainable meat and how to improve supply chains. The conference, “State of the Plate,” drew an amazing crowd of speakers and attendees.
- Also in Chicago, congratulations to Chefs Collaborative members Chef Carrie Nahabedian of NAHA and Chef Paul Virant of Vie for their recently awarded Michelin Stars!
- And finally, as we close in quickly on Thanksgiving (the ultimate local foods holiday), member Nicolette Hahn Niman shares a fantastic piece on heritage turkeys in The Atlantic. Read her article to learn about why they really are worth the extra cost.
