Last year's polls were such a hit--remember the all-out campaign Canlis put on to get Jason Franey his win?--that again this year, Food & Wine Magazine has come up with a list of nominees and is asking "the people" to vote for their favorite chef.
This year's nominees from the Pacific Northwest include several from Portland, one from Idaho, one from Hawaii, but who are kidding? You want to know which Seattle chefs made the cut.
Blaine Wetzel of Willows Inn
McCracken-Tough of Coterie Room, Spur and Tavern Law
Shaun McCrain of Book Bindery
and Cormac Mahoney from Madison Park Conservatory
Who will you vote for?
