“Leaders in a food revolution that sees mainstream chefs putting vegetables at the center of the plate” (Associated Press), Philly natives and husband-and-wife team Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby are co-owners of Vedge, a local mecca for foodies since 2011. Landau opened his first restaurant in 1994 and is notable for serving the first-ever vegan dinner at the James Beard House. Jacoby serves as Vedge’s pastry chef and runs its cocktail and wine program. They are also owners of V Street, a street-food bar based on their shared love of travel and food cultures. Their eponymous book is a tasty compendium of more than 100 vegetable recipes inspired by the great street foods of the world.
