Robb Report Culinary Masters Competition 2016
Robb Report has named Lee Wolen its New Culinary Master for 2016!
As in years past, this year's contest pitted against each other up-and-coming culinary stars nominated by a panel of celebrated master chefs. The master chefs—John Besh, Curtis Duffy, Christopher Kostow, Barbara Lynch, Norman Van Aken, and Michael White—each represent a region across the United States and each has nominated an up-and-coming chef doing groundbreaking work in the regional style. These emerging culinary artists—Lee Wolen, Justin Devillier, Kim Floresca and Daniel Ryan, Patrick Campbell, Phil Bryant, and John Becker—prepared a series of six competition dinners, which were judged by an exclusive group of Robb Report readers and editors. All proceeds from the competition were donated to charities chosen by the master chefs.
