Five Nebraska chefs were honored by their local farmer counterparts at the 2014 Producers Choice Chef Awards on January 19, 2014, at Metro Community College’s Institute for Culinary Arts in Omaha. The evening served as both a friendly competition and a fund-raiser for the Nebraska Sustainable Agriculture Society. Farmer members of NSAS voted for the best chefs who work to support and promote the local food community. A cocktail hour preceded a five-course meal, which was prepared by chefs using seasonally available ingredients. The honored chefs included were Paul Kulik from The Boiler Room and Le Bouillon, Nick Strawhecker from Dante Pizzeria, Clayton Chapman from The Grey Plume, Matt Roush from bread&cup and Joel Mahr from Lot 2.
