The Greenest Of The Green

Some of you may not be familiar with Grist–an environmental news/commentary site that covers everything from presidential hopefuls’ green plans to the difference between wave power and tidal power–but you should, particularly if you are interested in all things “green.”

Earlier this week, Grist released their list of 15 Green Chefs from around the world. Predictably, many of the Bay Area’s brightest culinary stars made the cut, including Alice Waters, Chris Cosentino (Incanto), David Kinch (Manresa) and Ted Walter (Passion Fish). In fact, out of the eight American chefs on the list, half are from our little Bay.

The full list of 15 follows:

1. Alice Waters, Chez Panisse, Berkeley, Calif., U.S.
2. Dan Barber, Blue Hill at Stone Barns, Pocantico Hills, N.Y., U.S.
3. Alain Passard, L’Arpège, Paris, France
4. Fergus Henderson, St. John Restaurant, London, U.K.
5. Chris Cosentino, Incanto, San Francisco, Calif., U.S.
6. Jamie Oliver, Fifteen, London, U.K.
7. Andrea Reusing, Lantern, Chapel Hill, N.C., U.S.
8. Corrado Assenza, Caffé Sicilia, Noto, Sicily, Italy
9. Tod Murphy, Farmers Diner, Quechee, Vt., U.S.
10. Ted Walter, Passion Fish, Pacific Grove, Calif., U.S.
11. Paulo Martins, Lá em Casa, Belém, Brazil
