Young Chefs, Extraordinary DessertsThe nominees were chosen by Food & Wine’s editors because they’re young and driven (all have been in charge of a kitchen for less than 5 years) — and are creating desserts no-one’s seen before. “There is so much innovation in the pastry world right now, and we’re excited to have the chance to celebrate it,” Food & Wine editor-in-chief Dana Cowin told Eater.com.
