Chefs Collaborative

The Studio Noir for Chefs Collaborative

It's important to feel good about the food choices we make in our kitchens. Since 1993, Chefs Collaborative--a nonprofit network of chefs that celebrates seasonal, sustainable foods and supports local food communities—has helped chefs make the right decisions. I've learned a ton from the group's tasting workshops, publications, and chef-to-chef discussions. Plus, participating in some of its program initiatives, like building an online sustainable-seafood curriculum, reminds me that a chef's job isn't limited to the kitchen. —Bruce Sherman, North Pond, Chicago
