Joseph V. Fasy Signature Chef

Chef Joseph Fasy loves to feature all things local in his recipes. His runner-up creation for the Innovation Challenge celebrates sweet potatoes—and his home state of North Carolina, the largest producer of sweet potatoes in the US for 50 straight years. 

"I was destined to be a chef, coming from an Italian restaurant family and a line of great cooks who reveled in food as a celebration of life, family and culture. "
