Food & Wine announced its highly anticipated list of 2013 Best New Chefs this morning. It did this not by sending out a memo — well, there was one of those eventually — but by tweeting out the list with a hashtag (#BNC25). Welcome to life as we know it. Congratulations, @MVoltaggio! Chef Michael Voltaggio (ink., ink.sack) was the only Los Angeles chef named to the annual list.

For all of you following along, the tweets came not from Food & Wine editor-in-chief Dana Cowin's Twitter account (@fwscout), but via CBS This Morning's (@CBSThisMorning). The 2013 honorees will be featured in the July issue of the magazine and will also attend the 31st annual Food & Wine Classic in Aspen from June 14-16. For the full list, turn the page.
