Food & Wine just released “America’s Greatest New Cooks” through its website, a collection of 100 recipes highlighting ten of the nation’s brightest talents and tested in the magazine’s kitchen, broken down into starters, mains, sides, and dessert. Edited by EIC Dana Cowin, Spice Table’s Bryant Ng, one of the publication’s “Best New Chefs” this year, is the sole chef representing Los Angeles, offering ten recipes including Singaporean pork satay, oyster and crab pan-roast, Southeast Asian rib-eye, and kaffir lime custard. Elsewhere, Bar Tartine’s Nicolaus Balla and Belinda Leong of B. Patisserie hold down NorCal, alongside chefs like Empellon’s Alex Stupak, Purple Pig’s Jimmy Bannos Jr., and Philly’s Michael Solomonov.
