The Best Young Chefs in America...According to the Best Chefs in America

At a special event for the recent Los Angeles Food & Wine festival, four ambitious young chefs took over Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bistro to kick off the second annual 2015 Young Chef Competition—a series of four coast-to-coast, head-to-head cook-offs that determine the country’s best up-and-coming culinary talent. Produced by Ment’or BKB (the esteemed culinary foundation that gives grants, training and recognition to the next generation of professionals), there will be four regional events over the next two months that will grant a total of $60,000 to eight first and second place winners—plus coveted opportunities to work in the restaurant of their choice (anywhere in the world).
