Chef Hillary Sterling — Set a Notify
After receiving her business degree from Indiana University, Hillary Sterling enrolled in night classes at Chicago’s Le Cordon Bleu, graduating with a Culinary Arts diploma.

In 2010, she shifted her focus to the fine-dining world, assuming the role of chef de cuisine at Michelin-starred A Voce. Working under chef Missy Robbins, Sterling fell in love with the regionality and traditions of Italian cuisine.

Chef Nina Compton — Set a Notify
Winner of the 2018 James Beard Awards “Best Chef: South” and one of Food & Wine magazine’s “Best New Chefs 2017”, Nina Compton is Chef/Owner of award-winning restaurants Compère Lapin and Bywater American Bistro in New Orleans. At Compère Lapin, the talented toque creates robust dishes that meld the flavors of her Caribbean upbringing and love for French and Italian cuisine, while highlighting the Gulf and Louisiana’s beautiful indigenous ingredients. Compton’s highly anticipated Bywater American Bistro – which opened in March 2018 – features contemporary American fare, showcasing the chef’s culinary craftsmanship while focusing on seasonal ingredient-driven cuisine in a casual, convivial setting.
Through his personal interpretations of ingredients and flavor combinations, Mauro Colagreco has forged a style of his own. Inspired by the sea, the mountains, and the fruit and vegetables grown in his gardens, Colagreco invents colorful, pictorial dishes that play with textures and bold contrasts. His cuisine is ultra-fresh, with lots of herbs, fruit, and vegetables showcasing magnificent ingredients produced by local growers: citrus fruit from the Riviera, saffron from Sospel, olive oil and lemons from Menton, wild mushrooms from the surrounding countryside, and more. Light, honest, respectful of nature, Colagreco’s cuisine expresses itself freely.
Daniela Soto-Innes — Set a Notify
Daniela Soto-Innes is the former executive chef and partner at Cosme, Atla, and Elio restaurants. She was named the “World’s Best Female Chef” by The World’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2019. She comes from a long line of women who love food and cooking. Visiting food markets and restaurants in Mexico City from a young age, she was instilled with curiosity for flavors and interest in baking. At age 5 she was placed in after-school cooking classes and never looked back. After just a year and a half as Chef de Cuisine at Cosme, she was named the James Beard Rising Star Chef of the Year. Driven by a vivacious spirit cultivated by years of competitive swimming, she has goals of one day following in her mother’s footsteps by opening a cooking school for children. Daniela believes that the simplest food can inspire the imagination most of all, and she makes her dishes meaningful by “finding the secret life in each ingredient.”

See merchant website for shipping policy. Some merchants may not ship to all areas. Please note if you purchase a subscription, unless you notify the merchant that you want to pause, cancel, or that you do not want to auto renew, your subscription will automatically renew for another subscription period (subject to applicable law) of equal length (for example monthly, or annually).

For example, you may not receive the statement credit if (a) the merchant uses a third-party to sell their products or services; or (b) the merchant uses a third-party to process or submit your transaction to us (e.g., using mobile or wireless card readers); or (c) you choose to make a purchase using a third-party payment account or make a purchase using a mobile or digital wallet. Purchases may fall outside of the offer period in some cases due to a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction (for example, the purchase date for online orders may be the shipping date). Statement credit will appear on your billing statement within 90 days after 3/1/2022, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. Note that American Express may not receive information about your qualifying purchase from merchant until all items/services from your qualifying purchase have been shipped/provided by merchant.
