The Top 5 Gluten-Free Chefs of 2016

The Top 5 Gluten-Free Chefs of 2016

By Ryan Ross, Foodable Contributing Writer

Of all the food trends that have swept the culinary world in the last decade, none is more significant than the advent of gluten-free cooking; in fact, you could make the argument that gluten-free cooking is a culinary discipline unto itself. And while many chefs have incorporated this new discipline into their repertoires, we thought we'd single out the top 5 gluten-free chefs of this year. 

In 2016, 18,309 chefs were mentioned in 36.3 million discussions about gluten-free menu options, and using this data, we've created the Foodable Labs Sentiment Rating. Each chef was rated on a 100-point scale based on the number of positive mentions they received in the discussions about gluten-free menu options. So without further ado, let's meet the top five gluten-free chefs of 2016.

Top Chefs Take Their Concept to Kickstarter

Former Top Chef contestants Tim Nugent and Jennifer Biesty are turning to Kickstarter to help get their Oakland restaurant off the ground. The restaurant, Shakewell Bar & Kitchen, will feature what the chefs call 'Americlectic' dishes: a combination of Mediterranean, Spanish, Turkish and North African cuisine.

Shakewell isn't the first restaurant concept to rely on Kickstarter for funds, and it most likely won't be the last. With over 400 backers and 19 hours to go, they have already raised $101,582 - reaching their goal of $100,000 and then some.   

The two sat down to discuss their concept and Kickstarter campaign.  See the full interview here.

As the farm-to-table movement moves forward, we see a lot of city chefs trying to incorporate simpler ideas into their concepts. These chefs are trying to bring the country to the city... but what happens when two chefs try to bring the city back to the country?

Successful chefs and restaurateurs Zak Pelaccio and Mark Firth are doing just that. After successfully owning and operating their own respective restaurants in the big city, the two have taken their talents just outside the big city into rural New York.  Read more about their story here.
