Welcome to the SAVEUR 100, our annual attempt to survey what's happening in the world of food and drink and boil it all down—like a rich meaty sauce that gets headier and more deeply dazzling as it reduces to its essence—to the best of the best of right now. After much spirited discussion and some (mostly civil) internal debate, endless days of recipe-tinkering in the test kitchen, and nights of eating around, we're pleased to share this year's earnestly curated, highly subjective lineup of the top 100 (in no particular order) people, places, gadgets, tastes, and techniques that are inspiring and exciting us in and out of the kitchen. – Adam Sachs, Editor-in-Chief
