Cooks 2018

cooks cover webThe Cooks Issue

Welcome to our final Cooks issue! Earlier this year, we decided this is our last year of publishing themed issues, but don’t worry readers, we promise you’ll be able to see all the familiar Cooks issue features sprinkled in our other issues throughout the year—you just won’t have to wait until September to read them! If you have someone you’d like to see included in our Cooks at Home features, send us a tip at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Every year when this issue goes to press, the feeling of satisfaction is quickly followed by the buzz of planning the Chef Auction, our annual celebration of local food, cooking talent and noteworthy nonprofits. We’re very excited about this year’s event—our seventh annual—as we’ve been hard at work to make sure it’s the best possible evening for both the guests and our two nonprofit beneficiaries, Sustainable Food Center and Urban Roots. Find out more on the 2018 Chef Auction here.

And as you flip through the issue, we hope you enjoy the features on some of the people who help make Austin the city we love. Cheers to Cooks!
