Meet the 30 Most Influential People in Food

Who can deny that food has gone from simple sustenance to trendy to a topic that has come to dominate our lives—whether having to do with public health, personal wellness, the profession and hobby of cooking, the marketing of packaged goods and fast food, and the dissemination of content via social media and endless magazines, blogs and video channels. In this inaugural list of the 30 Most Influential People in Food, we spotlight the chefs, restaurateurs, entrepreneurs, media personalities, authors, social media stars, journalists and marketers who keep us informed, entertained and fed. —Tony Case
