Neither 2010 Rising Star Chef Clayton Miller nor Rising Star Pastry Chef Chris Ford are originally from Virginia, but the duo have helped change the face of destination dining in the state. Pittsburgh native Miller had experience everywhere from The Ritz-Carlton to Daniel to The French Laundry under his belt before joining the opening Trummer’s on Main team. Dishes like his plump Chilled New Zealand Greenshell Mussels, Quinoa, Curry Mayo, and Fluffy Ocean show all the clout of a seasoned fine dining chef, plus that X factor that turns hippie commune-reminiscent food like quinoa into a polished and sophisticated dish. Ford’s experience in New York as sous chef to Chika Tillman at quirky dessert bar ChikaLicious is evident in his practiced and successful juggling of subtle flavors, and creative textural play that takes chocolate dessert and turns it into Chocolate Soup, Cocoa Nib Sherbet, Cinnamon Marshmallow, and Devil’s Food Cake.
