To celebrate the often unsung individuals dedicated to cultivating a new generation of talent, TastingTable.com presents Mark the Moment, a collection of interviews with nine forces of the national food scene. The guys profiled in this digital book have all achieved great success in their respective fields. But each is quick to point out that his success is due in no small part to an influential mentor. Tasting Table asked them to mark the moment when they proved themselves to their mentors.
TastingTable.com's Mark the Moment collection includes interviews with Marcus Samuelsson, chef at Red Rooster in New York, NY; Christopher Kostow, chef at The Restaurant at Meadowood in St. Helena, CA; Bill Kim, chef/owner of Urban Belly and Belly Shack in Chicago, IL; Brad Farmerie, chef at PUBLIC and Saxon + Parole in New York, NY; Jimmy Bradley, chef/owner of The Red Cat and The Harrison in New York, NY; Joshua Applestone, owner of Fleisher’s Meats in Kingston, NY, and New York, NY; Luke Holden, owner of Luke’s Lobster in New York, NY; Jeremy Tooker, owner of Four Barrel Coffee in San Francisco, CA; and Quintin Middleton, owner of Middleton Made Knives in St. Stephen, SC.
