South Boston Chef Earns National Recognition

South Boston, VA - Chef Margaret Moorefield, owner of Bistro 1888 in downtown South Boston, was named one of the top chefs in the country.

The accolades come from Best Chefs America, an annual publication showcasing the best chef's in the nation.

Moorefield has opened award-winning restaurants in Florida and Oregon, and opened Bistro 1888, 10 years ago.

Moorefield says out of all her awards, this one tops them all, because she was nominated by other culinary professionals.

"That means the most to me, because other chefs, they know what it takes. It's a battle like a battle field back there sometimes honestly," Moorefield said.

Moorefield has been in the cooking industry for over 30 years now. She says her passion started as a little girl when her mom taught her how to make biscuits.
