We are happy to present the inaugural submission from the first Deep Plate exercise.   Thank you to everyone who submitted their presentations for February.   Our goal is to develop a valuable community and resource for professional chefs.   Please encourage other chefs to participate.   

A special “thank you” to www.monkeydish.com powered by Restaurant Business for posting a link to Deep Plate in their Speed Surf Section.   This posting helped contribute to a late rush of participation requests towards the February deadline.   We’ll upload the second wave of submissions soon. 

Please subscribe to Deep Plate.
