Chefs who have paid their dues at Paul Cocking’s tiny hearth include Jim Denevan (Outstanding in the Field), Rebecca King (Garden Variety Cheese), Brad Briske of Main Street Garden Cafe, Chris La Veque of El Salchicherro.

The ever-vigilant Tana Butler reminded me of two more – brilliant Catherine Stern of La Posta and Kendra Baker of Penny Ice Creamery.
