Omaha Chef Clayton Chapman continues to rack up accolades. This morning, Food and Wine Magazine nominated the Grey Plume's front man as one of the top ten Midwestern chefs in its "The People's Best New Chefs" contest.
The magazine chooses its top 10 chefs from a number of regions around the U.S. and then asks the public to vote for the one it likes best.
In its writeup about Chapman, the magazine says he's amazing because "despite being only 25, he's cooking with vision, sophistication and spirit."
It names his must-try dish: rabbit with baby spinach, oyster mushrooms and pickled shallots, and gives him credit for making his own butter and roasting beans for the Grey Plume's house-made coffee.
Voting for the contest begins today and ends March 11. To vote, click here.
