From chef competitions and TV appearances to award-winning cookbook author and restauranteur, Chef Art Smith has lived a dream life in the kitchen. He’s been a personal chef for heads of state and celebrities (Oprah!) and continues to delight diners at his many restaurants. Art has founded two non-profit organizations, including Common Threads which teaches nutrition and world culture to children in low-income areas. As a father of five children, he’s always busy creating dishes that are both delicious and healthy. Look for his featured salad on your café menu this month.
