Bill Neal, Chef/Owner, Crook's Corner Restaurant, Chapel Hill, NC

Neal seems destined to become one of the notable representatives of the cooking of the New South. As founding chef/owner of La Residence in Chapel Hill, he performed some of the state's most sophisticated cooking. Now he's promoting his personal interpretation of Carolina Low Country cooking at Crook's Corner, and has authored a cookbook which was recently published by the University of North Carolina Press.
