2017 Rising Stars: These 5 are the ones to watch in Georgia’s restaurant scene

By Hope S. Philbrick and Nancy Wood

What does it take to make it in today’s competitive restaurant scene? Talent? Determination? Blood, sweat and tears?

For the five people Restaurant Informer selected, in partnership with the Georgia Restaurant Association, as the state’s Rising Stars, it’s all of the above and more.

While these five chefs come from varied backgrounds and cook different cuisines, they all have two things in common: A determination to succeed, and a love of cooking. They’re also people who are not only leaders, but mentors to others, whether that’s by teaching kitchen staff how to break down primal cuts or nurturing talent in the people around them.

Read on to learn more about these five talented chefs – no doubt you’ll be hearing their names again in the next few years.
