In Travel + Leisure’s 2013 America’s Favorite Cities survey San Francisco was voted #1 for fine-dining Restaurants… no surprise there. San Franciscans are some of the luckiest eaters in the world, surrounded by award-winning spots, top produce and agriculture, and the most innovative chefs in the world.

Two such masters of their craft are Michael Mina and Michael Chiarello, who have been movers and shakers in California cooking for the past three decades. Though each takes a distinct approach to American cuisine, both chefs share a fierce regional devotion and a passion for exploration - from pioneering culinary trends to promoting sustainable farming practices to embracing new technology and social media.
Join us as rising star Evan Rich gets these two giants to open up about their passions, the process, the American dining landscape, and their experiences shaping California food.
