Dallas Rising Stars Purveyors

What’s a chef without his purveyors? The quality of ingredients in a dish is nearly as important as the preparation itself – and chefs know that finding the right purveyors is one of the most critical aspects of their job. For the Dallas Rising Stars Revue, chefs relied on their tried-and-true purveyors from around the country to provide the products that make their dishes shine.
