#10 Thomas Henkelmann, Greenwich, Conn.

Born in the Black Forest of Germany near the Alsatian border, chef Thomas Henkelmann acquired his extensive culinary training around France, Germany, and Switzerland, working in places ranging from his family’s restaurant to the world-renowned Hôtel Le Richemond in Geneva to the three-Michelin-starred Auberge de l'Ill in Alsace. The contemporary French menu in his dining room at the Homestead Inn follows the seasons, and can include dishes like pheasant quenelles crowned in puff pastry served with pheasant consommé, foie gras, Périgord black truffles, and porcini mushrooms; grenadin of veal with a Maine lobster risotto and Parmesan-Reggiano lace; and roasted loin of venison with bow-tie pasta gratin, red cabbage, poached pear, red wine venison sauce, and watercress.
