We've carefully combed through the 100 plus comments from last week's post and compiled the top five male and top five female chefs you nominated as Houston's hottest chef.
We combed through our own photo archives and -- occasionally -- the chef's Facebook or Twitter pages to come up with the photos you see below. We didn't want the chefs who were nominated to run off and get Glamour Shots done, after all.
Our nominees are listed on the following pages in alphabetical order, ladies first. After you've read through all the nominees, leave your vote for Houston's hottest chef in the comments section below.
Please leave one vote for the hottest female chef and/or one vote for the hottest male chef. (Multiple votes from the same IP addresses will be deleted, so play fair.) And, as usual, any nasty or disparaging comments will be swiftly deleted.
The ballot box/comments section will close on Monday, May 31, at midnight, so get those votes in while you can! And stay tuned next week when we start counting down the winners.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
