Food & Wine magazine just dropped its 2015 Best New Chef list on March 31, and though we're disappointed it didn't include any Portland chefs this time around (Greg and Gabi Denton at Ox landed on it last year), we're taking solace in the fact that the Rose City took a lion's share of the nominations for the People's Choice award.
Of the 10 spots available in the Pacific Northwest category, Portland chefs nabbed six: Johanna Ware (Smallwares), Bonnie Morales (Kachka), Sarah Pliner (Aviary), Joshua McFadden (Ava Gene's), Ian Wilson (Fenrir), and Justin Woodward (Castagna).
Visit the site to check out the back story on each nominee and cast your vote. Voting is live now through April 8, so if you want to give your favorite chef a virtual pat on the back, don't delay. The winners will be announced April 9.
