THE WGBH CULINARY STEWARDSHIP AWARD
This award was created to celebrate the spirit of WGBH food television programming, whose mission has been to advance the understanding, appreciation, and quality of wine and food, in concert with the symbiotic mission of the WGBH Educational Foundation to educate, inform and inspire.
The award celebrates a chef who educates or informs on food topics or cooking techniques, inspires others to try new things, and contributes to the improvement of food quality by investing in a sustainable food supply chain. The award can be given for a number of reasons: from creative use of ingredients to storytelling about and support of the local food supply chain, as well as educating diners on ethnic and regional dishes, or a combination of these qualities.
