Our cover story this month is one of a kind, as we were able to speak to Chef Thomas Keller, a renowned American chef and owner of The French Laundry, Bouchon and other culinary gems. He gives us the scoop on where professional chefs are looking to bring the food scene, tells us how he really feels about the farm-to-table movement and discusses how social media has been both good and bad for the culinary industry.
Karmin Billadeau of Karmin’s Kitchen Table was our retail profile for this issue. In her story, she reveals how working hard to become a staple in her community through giving back has been crucial to the growth of her business.
We include the coverage of the GI Roundtable Series, which took place at the winter 2019 edition of the Dallas Total Home + Gift Market. The subject of this roundtable discussion was donations, charity and how giving back to the community is a critical business move for small business.
