The Chefs Collaborative announced the 2012 Sustainability Award Winners. These awards recognize individuals who have played an exemplary role in promoting a national network of chefs changing the sustainable food landscape.
The organization called for nominations in May. "Our members and friends responded with more than a hundred chefs, producers and sustainable food leaders doing amazing work all over the country," said Melissa Kogut, executive director of Chefs Collaborative. The Awards Committee selected finalists for each award and presented them to an esteemed group of judges. "The judges votes are in and we are proud to recognize this year's Pathfinder, Foodshed Champion and Sustainer," added Kogut.
The organization's members and friends will toast the 2012 Sustainability Award Winners on Tuesday, October 2, at noon, at the Seattle Art Museum. The Awards lunch is set for the conclusion of the 2012 Sustainable Food Summit, September 30 - October 2, in Seattle. Kim Severson of The New York Times will be Mistress of Ceremonies and John Sundstrom of Lark restaurant and a team of some of Seattle's best chefs are planning a meal that will make the Pacific Northwest proud.
Founded in 1993, Chefs Collaborative (http://chefscollaborative.org/) is a national network of chefs changing the sustainable food landscape using the power of collaboration, education and responsible buying decisions.
