Food is more than just fuel. It’s a social centerpiece and provides a foundation for some of our fondest, funniest, and most-talked about memories. And in this month’s issue, we have plenty of pieces focused around it, beginning with our feature, Top Chefs (page 49), where Luna Anona introduces you to 15 of our region’s culinary tastemakers—each with their own signature cooking style and skill set. Though the types of cuisine they dish out vastly vary, all of them share a passion for preparing mouthwatering plates. Learn all about them, including their food philosophies, favorite restaurants, top cooking tips, and how they rose to the top, then stop by their respective eateries to taste the fruits of their labor.Whatever your calendar looks like these next 30 days, I hope it’s filled with good friends, good food, and good times. Cheers!
