In 2013, Best Chefs America introduced the first-ever comprehensive peer review guide of chefs in the U.S., highlighting the top one percent of chefs in the country. The book was the result of more than 5,000 one-on-one interviews with chefs across the country to find out who chefs think are the best.
“As the result of months of research and detailed interviews with chefs for Best Chefs America, we discovered that regional trends and cuisine culture were recurring themes. Chefs from each state pride themselves and are passionate when it comes to recreating regional flavors in their dishes,” states Gabe Joseph, editor in chief of Best Chefs America. “With this series, we shed some light on the culture and cuisine of each state. We also highlight the most talented chefs in the South, according to chefs.”
