Our friends at Food & Wine Magazine just revealed their annual list of the country’s Best New Chefs. We’re always on the lookout for impressive up-and-comers in the food world, so we attended the announcement celebration and talked to several of the honorees. Should we expect to see some of them as future competitors on Iron Chef? It certainly seems possible.
