Food and Wine Magazine has expanded its Best New Chef Award and partnered with CNN’s Eatocracy to create a new award called, “The People’s Best New Chef.”  The winner, selected by the dining public and online voting, will be featured in the magazine alongside the winners of this year’s Best New Chef awards.  Vishwesh is among 100 pre-selected chefs, from 10 regions (the chef needs to have run their own kitchens for five years or fewer), and will be voted on via an online poll at Eatocracy’s website.

Voting will run from February 15 through March 1, and the chef with the most votes in each region will then be named a finalist. Then the chef with the most votes overall will be named The 2011 People’s Best New Chef and will be featured in the July 2011 issue of Food & Wine alongside the winners of this year’s Best New Chef awards.
