Dana Cox, a chef instructor in the School of Culinary Arts, was selected among greater Chicago postsecondary culinary educators to receive a $1,500 grant from Olson Communications in their fourth-annual Chefs of Tomorrow™ program. Cox will use the grant to visit heirloom-grain farms in Illinois and South Carolina as research for a book she’s writing on her 12-month experiment of eating only foods grown on family farms. She currently is eight months into her endeavor.

“The goal of the project is, first, to prove that it is possible, and second, to inspire others to make whatever incremental change they can toward supporting local farming,” explained Cox, a 2005 culinary graduate of Kendall College. She also operates a successful personal-chef business, Old Stove LLC. “This knowledge will be shared with my students and the general public via my blog, the book and every day in my classroom as we discuss sourcing, purchasing and marketing foodstuffs.”
