Head chef and co-owner of Blue Hill at Stone Barns and author of The Third Plate, Dan Barber’s opinions on food and agriculture have appeared in the New York Times, amongst several other notable publications.

On the list of influential chefs of the next decade – and the only female chef to be featured on either list – is Dominique Crenn. At her San Francisco restaurant, the menu is presented in the form of a poem, while her influence is described by Andy Hayler as "going well beyond her cooking."

Grant Acahtz is already a world renowned chef, but Andy Hayler expects plenty more great things to come: "With his cutting edge cuisine at 3 star Michelin Alinea and the regularly changing culinary themes at Next, Grant Achatz is hugely influential at the cutting edge of high end cooking."
