We’re shining a light on three chefs whose career paths and cooking have been marked by choices that seemed unusual, but turned out to be rewarding (and delicious!). Choices that were, in a word, unconventional.
— From the Introduction


I find that being unconventional is not just about putting weird flavors together. Anybody can do that. Putting normal flavors together in a different way, with a new method, can be unconventional.
— Francisco Migoya
