SAN FRANCISCO, CA, CALIF., May 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chefs Feed, the leading food-related network and mission-driven media platform, is expanding to Napa and Sonoma today. The Company's Napa and Sonoma debut continues adding content depth with credible reviews from the world's most acclaimed professional chefs – specifically, where and what they eat outside of their own kitchens. Award winning culinary masters like Chef Christopher Kostow, (The Restaurant at Meadowood); Chef Ken Frank (La Toque); and Chef Hiro Sone (Terra Restaurant), are among the top chefs sharing their favorite restaurants and meals in Napa and Sonoma.
According to the local tourism bureaus, approximately ten million people visit Napa and Sonoma Valley each year and drive more than $2.8 billion in spending in the area. Chefs Feed ensures that money is spent well by directing visitors to the restaurants and dishes that the best tastemaker chefs recommend. This is valuable information for any region, but especially important for what many consider to be North America's premier food and wine destination.
"Chefs Feed is known for offering consumers bold new perspectives on food and dining, and chefs more ways to directly appeal to hungry gourmands and otherwise speak to the world's growing food-inspired media audiences," said Rich Maggiotto, CEO at Chefs Feed. "Napa and Sonoma are known for culinary excellence and have become top destinations for not just wine but also food lovers. By expanding into this market, we're helping find those hidden gems on the menu that chefs love and visitors wouldn't necessarily try otherwise."
Chefs Feed continues to be recognized as a credible resource for food discovery. Recently, the company climbed to the top spot in the Food & Drink category on iTunes and took home "Best Website" in the 18th Annual Webby Awards in the Guides/Ratings/Reviews category. Hailed as the ʺInternet's highest honorʺ by The New York Times, The Webby Awards, presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet. This is the second consecutive year Chefs Feed has won a Webby Award. Last year, the company edged out Google Maps and Urbanspoon for Best Mobile Guide.
