Things seem to be going well for Miami’s own, Chef Giorgio Rapicavoli. After having beaten his opponents on an episode of Food Network’s Chopped, he introduced Miami to the concept of the pop up restaurant, which quickly garnered him accolades from the foodie world for his innovative approach to cuisine. His youthful playfulness has brought us such dishes as heirloom tomatoes with nuoc cham, crushed peanuts and liquid nitrogen-frozen coconut milk that, while simple, show a complexity and balance of flavors and textures. And now that his pop up restaurant, Eating House, has become a permanent fixture, Chef Rapicavoli is in the running for being chosen Hottest Chef of 2013 by www.eater.com.
Winners are chosen by the public and not only based on the chefs’ culinary prowess but also on their sex appeal. Voting for the divisional champs representing the southern, northeastern, western, and central United States ends tomorrow at 10:00 AM, so makes sure to cast your vote for Miami and Chef Giorgio Rapicavoli. Winners of each division will then be running against each other for the title of 2013’s Hottest Chef of the country.
Voting for the regional divisions ends tomorrow, Tuesday, February 19th at 10:00 AM.
