Who's hot? Chicago's chefs, that's who. And we're going to find out just who is the hottest in Eater Chicago's 2011 Hottest Chef Competition. The contest will offer both the underdogs and the clear front runners the chance to battle it out in nail-biting heats and final elimination rounds. But before we get to all that sexy excitement, we need your help. Send your nominations for the hottest chef in Chicago along with a picture or link to an image.
The winner of each city's competition will then go on to compete on Eater National for the title of Hottest Chef in America. Nominations are due by Jan. 28, after which they will be culled and seeded. Then the games will begin.
