Last night Food & Wine announced their awards for this year's Best New Chefs. The ten winners, picked from around the country, included one chef from Los Angeles: Ricardo Zarate of Mo-Chica, who can now add this award to his accolades, which include showing up on Coca-Cola billboards in his native Peru. Very cool. The chef, who is opening his second restaurant, Picca, in a matter of weeks, had won the People's award in the Pacific division, the first time F&W had opened the voting up to the public. Roy Choi (Kogi, Chego) was among last year's winners. And guess what, there's now an app for this one too: F&W's Best New Chef app. Of course there is.
