Why These Seattle Chef Transplants Wouldn't Live Anywhere Else
It’s easy to explain to outsiders why we love Seattle during the summer. The sun, the Sound, the farmer's markets brimming with everything a home cook or chef could want. But our detractors point to January, and the relentless pummeling of gray, rainy days. In a city that is now brimming with transplants (over 93,000 people moved to the state between 2014 and 2015 alone), many of them in the hospitality industry, we thought we'd go right to the source and ask chefs what brought them to our fair city. See why one moved from sunny LA, how a chef from Idaho beat the fabled "Seattle Freeze," what a restaurateur from Greece brags about to his friends, and plenty more reasons to love Seattle and its food scene.
