Gov. Jim Justice, in partnership with the West Virginia Department of Tourism, today launched the West Virginia Chef Ambassador Program. The program will showcase talented chefs across the Mountain State to promote West Virginia’s culinary innovation, farm-to-table experiences, and growing agritourism industry.
Nominations are now open for this year’s inaugural class of chef ambassadors.
“West Virginia’s culinary industry is one of our state’s best-kept secrets,” Gov. Justice said. “It’s time we take the flavors we all know and love---and the chefs behind our favorite local dishes---and shine a spotlight on the great things happening across the Mountain State.”
