“40 Big Food Thinkers 40 and Under,” by Katherine Wheelock.

Katherine writes, “These 40 up-and-comers—all 40 years old or younger—are changing the way Americans eat and drink, from a vodka distiller who rewrote Nebraska’s Prohibiton-era laws to a White House chef who’s fiercely fighting to improve school-lunch programs. “ About us she says, “By experimenting with novel techniques—like making wine using grapes growing wild on abandoned vineyard land—Brandt, 40, and her husband, Jared, are helping to change the way wine is made. They’re also changing where it’s made: They produce their distinctive Rhône-style bottlings in a warehouse in downtown Berkeley, California, in the heart of fast-growing urban-winemaking country.”
