Last week, we learned that Departure chef Greg Gourdet is the hottest chef in all of Portland. But it's not over. Today, Gourdet goes on to the national level to compete against Austin's winner, Kurt Ramborger, in the first round of Eater's Hottest Chef in America contest. Head over to Eater National to show Gourdet some love and help bring this title home — seriously, imagine the shame of losing to Austin. The shame.
