Dr. Darryl Holliday is a food scientist, chef, and professor with a passion for food science and education, innovation, and product commercialization. Common criticism of academia is that instructors lose touch with the industry, with its realities of time constraints, costs, and production schedules. Not so with Dr. Holliday (ahem), who maintains a thriving consultancy and offers support to food businesses through both the college and his private work. He shares his observations about the ingredients for successful product development and how timing and luck are just as important as creating a great product.

At the most recent Research Chefs Association Awards Ceremony, Darryl is the one who jumped up and pledged to sponsor PeasOnMoss to help keep it running, and his generous announcement encouraged others to pledge as well. Won’t you join the sponsorship? Find out at
