Based in: Chicago

Restaurants: Frontera Grill, Topolobampo

Charity: Frontera Farmer Foundation

Created by chef Bayless himself, this nonprofit supports small, sustainable farms in the Chicago area by providing them with capital development grants. It was established in 2003 out of concern for struggling farmers and the importance of local produce in Chicago's culinary scene.
