Being recognized on this list has historically been a launch pad to recognition and business success for many chefs. Past recipients included famous chefs like David Chang and Tom Colicchio of Top Chef Fame. This year Food & Wine selected two established black culinary superstars who have been excelling for years in two different shades of our culinary foodways.

Congratulations to both of these brothers and continued success!
