Colorado Springs, CO (PRWEB) June 12, 2013
Chef Steve Weber of Garden of the Gods Club was recently recognized as one of the country’s top culinary talents in the inaugural edition of Best Chefs America. This is the first-ever peer review guide of U.S. chefs who were chosen after extensive interviews between their fellow chefs and Best Chefs America analysts. Chef Weber is one of only 20 chefs in Colorado Springs to be highlighted in the book, which was released on March 1.
“I am honored to have been nominated by my peers and included in Best Chefs America,” Chef Weber said. “I am passionate about the culinary arts, and this recognition gives me yet another reason to be appreciative of my fellow professionals and chosen career.”
“Chefs themselves truly understand what it takes to be successful in this competitive industry, and Best Chefs America offers them a forum to express their views,” Elizabeth Fishburne, Best Chefs America lead analyst, explained. “Based on the overwhelmingly positive response from more than 5,000 participating chefs, it is clear that the chef world was ready for us.”
