These James Beard nominated chefs met in 1997 while living in Chicagowhere they quickly realized they shared the same desire of highlighting the importance of  local ingredients and sustainable sources. In 2000 they moved their families to Madison where they have and will continue to broaden the talent level of our local food scene.Madison Parks Foundation is excited to welcome these talented chefs as they lend their expertise to this year’s Picnic in the Park.
