Napa Sonoma 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 Napa Sonoma Rising Stars Revue, chefs relied on their tried-and-true purveyors from around the country to provide the products that made their dishes shine.
