RefractometerDan Barber (born 1969) is a chef and co-owner of Blue Hill in Manhattan and Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, New York. He is a 1992 graduate of Tufts University, where he received a B. A. in English, and a graduate of the French Culinary Institute.

Chef Barber’s new book The Third Plate is making waves that extend way beyond the “foodie” community. He’s joined by “This American Life” host Ira Glass as he proposes a new pattern of eating rooted in cooking with and celebrating the whole farm—a cuisine as sustainable as it is delicious.
