It's the moment everyone has been waiting for—the 2014 Best New Chefs reveal! "Food & Wine Best New Chefs set the trends for restaurants across the country," says F&W's Editor in Chief Dana Cowin. "For instance, this year's winners are obsessed with wood-fired grilling and cooking with vegetables at every stage of ripeness." Congratulations to the new class of incredibly talented chefs who will be featured in the July issue of Food & Wine and showcased at the 32nd annual Food & Wine Classic in Aspen.
