Jason Vincent Talks About Anxiety, the Pressures of the Spotlight, and Making Time for Family

5/23/2019
More
In 2013, Jason Vincent's life changed in the course of a phone call. Food & Wine called to tell him that he'd been selected as a Best New Chef, and suddenly he was thrust into the spotlight. For a while, it burned him up. Vincent made the decision to step away from restaurants for two years to take care of his mental and physical health, and that of his growing family. Now he's back in the game as the chef-owner at the much-beloved Giant in Chicago, and making a priority of creating a...

Sam Hellman-Mass Talks About Extreme Opening Stress, Graceful Leadership, and His Masa Obsession

5/21/2019
More
Restaurateurs talk about having skin in the game, but for Sam Hellman-Mass, the situation was more literal. In the buildup to opening Suerte—one of Food & Wine's 2019 Best New Restaurants—he had a stress-exacerbated allergic reaction to a medication that caused his whole body to turn red and his vision to be impaired for months. Still, he persevered, and from its inception, Hellman-Mass and executive chef Fermín Nuñez have set a culture at Suerte that puts the mental and physical wellbeing...

Yasmin Khan Talks about Palestinian Food, Bearing Witness, and Self Care While Reporting

5/16/2019
More
Yasmin Khan isn't afraid to delve into the tough stuff. Growing up around a dinner table with an Iranian-born mother and Pakistan-born father who met as activists in the aftermath of the Iranian Revolution, politics were definitely on the table. A career fighting for international human rights was a natural evolution for her, but there was an even more direct way to bring some humanity to an often overwhelming and abstract cause. After her first cookbook The Saffron Tales: Recipes from the...

Bryan and Michael Voltaggio Talk About Working With Family, Top Chef, and Being Young, Broke Cooks

5/9/2019
More
The public may best know Bryan and Michael Voltaggio from their fiery Top Chef face-offs, but by the time the brothers appeared onscreen, they'd collectively logged a couple of decades working in kitchens. They learned plenty from their lean years—how to survive in New York City on $300 a week, find their voice while cooking for other people, and be part of a team—and now they're the ones calling the shots. As their latest co-venture, Estuary in Washington D.C., opens its doors, the brothers...

Julia Sullivan Talks About Kitchen Intensity, Physical Stresses, and Seeking Balance

5/2/2019
More
Julia Sullivan is a person perpetually in forward motion. After tenures in the notoriously demanding kitchens at Blue Hill Stone Barns and Per Se, Sullivan returned to her hometown of Nashville to open her own restaurant Henrietta Red, which opened to tremendous acclaim and earned her a spot on the 2018 Food & Wine's Best New Chef roster. But that sort of work, focus, and hustle comes at a cost, physically, socially, and mentally. The Food & Wine Chefs Cycle team captain isn't slowing down,...

Pete Wells Talks About Criticism, Sassy Magazine, and Not Taking Things Personally

4/25/2019
More
New York Times restaurant critic Pete Wells holds one of the most storied positions in journalism, and it comes with a massive helping of responsibility, physical demands, and expectations from readers and restaurateurs alike. Wells (who does his best to maintain anonymity) sat down to talk about the history of the job, its tolls and rewards, and what he hopes that chefs understand about his reviews—even when they're negative.

Kwame Onwuachi Talks About Public Pressure, Representation, and Finding Peace

4/18/2019
More
Kwame Onwuachi is learning when to stop and take a deep breath. In the last few weeks alone, he's been named a Food & Wine Best New Chef and a James Beard Rising Star finalist, and published a stunning memoir called Notes from a Young Black Chef. In the midst of all the accolades, he's still at the helm of Kith/Kin, the much-celebrated restaurant that he opened in the wake of the very public and swift closure of his first solo outing. This might seem like a lot all at once, but Onwuachi has...

4/11/2019
More
His Michelin-starred restaurant Aldea is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, but George Mendes has been working his way through some of the world's most prestigious restaurant since graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in 1992. He's seen a major shift in kitchen culture along the way—and in his own attitudes toward self care. The 2011 Food & Wine Best New Chef sat down to talk about the importance of mentorship, friendship, biking, and being an ambassador for Portuguese...

David Chang Talks Mental Health, Insomnia, and Star Wars

4/4/2019
More
David Chang isn't sleeping much these days. It was never his strong suit, but with a new baby, an ever-expanding restaurant and market empire, and a media company to oversee, rest is even more elusive. That doesn't mean that he's abandoned all self care, though. If anything, he's more determined than ever to manage his own mental health and talk about it for the good of the industry, even if it's the last thing on earth he wants to do. The Momofuku Group and Majordomo Media founder sat down...

Seamus Mullen Talks About Near-Death, Listening to Your Body, and the Road to Healing

3/28/2019
More
Seamus Mullen has been to hell and back. An autoimmune condition, coupled with a hard-driving chef lifestyle, brought him to a physical and emotional low point that he—and his doctors—weren't sure he could come back from. But then he turned to food. It had been the center of his career, but it turned out to be what saved his life and let him thrive. The author of Hero Food and Real Food Heals sat down to talk about truly listening your body and nourishing it on every level. IG: @seamusmullen...

You may think you know Angie Mar from her ultra-luxe Instagram feed, or maybe you've had the pleasure of indulging in a meal at her inventive, over-the-top restaurant, The Beatrice Inn. But the 2017 Food & Wine Best New Chef wants you to know about the blood, sweat, tears, and terrifyingly lean times that led up to her buying this classic property and pushing its legacy forward.
