Behold the 2018 class of Chronicle Rising Star Chefs. These are the chefs that, we believe, will influence — and lead — tomorrow’s restaurant industry, through their food, their hiring practices, their business models and their forward-thinking.

Sign up here. IN 1993, I WENT ON my first tropical vacation. OK, it was Bermuda, so it was subtropical, but that did nothing to dampen my excitement. During the flight, my anticipation grew as I looked over the brochure from the travel agent showing the inn where my girlfriend and I would be staying as part of our prepaid package.
