Rising Stars 2022: Columbia

Rising Stars 2022: Columbia

From the farm to the kitchen, a restaurant is only as good as the people behind it. And as we turn the corner on a new year, we’re raising a glass to the very folks who help our favorite local restaurants run – whether you know their names yet or not.

Our annual list of Rising Stars celebrates up-and-coming talent throughout the food-and-beverage industry, including farmers, line cooks, pastry chefs, baristas, brewers and winemakers. Despite the challenges brought on by the pandemic, these individuals are finding new and creative ways to engage our communities and strengthen our food scenes, from pop-ups to food hall stands to cottage bakeries operating out of their very own home kitchens.
