As chefs, we have a direct impact on the global food system, whether through choosing better, fresher ingredients or ensuring that we source these ingredients sustainably. Diners are becoming more curious about where their food comes from and are slowly starting to make their culinary choices based on the impact the food will have on both their diet and the planet.
