F&W has added a category to its annual Best New Chefs competition: the People’s Chef. Readers will vote from nominees hailing from 10 US regions.
Blaine Wetzel, the Lummi Island chef with the famous Noma pedigree, is also a contender.
The other contenders hail from Portland (Ben Bettinger, Chris DiMinno, Gregory Gourdet, Jenn Louis, and Jake Martin), and Depoe Bay, Oregon (Justin Wills).
You have until March 1 to vote for your favorite.
