Is ChefDb yet another restaurant listings site?
Absolutely not. Nor is it a restaurant review site. Instead, ChefDb is an archival project designed to document the names of chefs, restaurateurs and restaurants, past and present. Profile pages reveal the employment history of the individual or, in the case of restaurant profiles, the individuals who have worked at that particular establishment.
All of the information is cross-referenced, making it easy to navigate between people and places. As the information on this site has not previously been collected in a central repository, it makes for an exciting project to build and develop from the ground up.
Similar to IMDB (Internet Movie Database) and other user-powered database sites, this is a growing site that will allow anyone to find the history and current status of restaurant professionals. For the empowered diner, they can use it to find out where their favorite chef is working or other related information.
