Insider is seeking nominations for chefs and cooks who have flown under-the-radar.
Specifically, we want to highlight chefs or cooks doing incredible work in their field who haven't won major culinary awards.
Please submit your nominations via this form.
Michelin-starred chefs and James Beard Foundation award-winners often lead the food world, but they only represent a small portion of an industry brimming with talent.
"You don't have to look far to taste some of the best food the world has to offer. I'd pit my grandmother against a 3-star Michelin chef any day," said Nadia Giosia, a celebrity chef who did not attend traditional culinary school.
To recognize those culinary rockstars, Insider is putting together a list of chefs and cooks who are doing fantastic work within their areas of expertise, but have not received significant recognition or awards from major culinary institutions.
From those who made a career change and began cooking professionally later in life to up-and-coming young chefs, we're accepting US-based nominees of all ages, experience levels, and backgrounds across all culinary disciplines.
Please complete this form by the submission deadline of Wednesday, March 24 at 11:59 p.m. EST to have your selection considered for our list.
