Michel Nischan


Michel Nischan is a two-time James Beard Foundation Award winner and chef/owner of Dressing Room in Westport, Connecticut.

A son of displaced farmers, Nischan grew up with a deep appreciation for sustainable agriculture and those who work the land. As a professional chef and advocate for a more healthful, organic and sustainable food future, he has built on those childhood values and become a catalyst for change and new initiatives in local and regional food systems. Nischan’s latest cookbook, Sustainably Delicious, was released in April 2010.
