Matt Lackey, Philip Krajeck Nominated for Food & Wine's People's Best New Chef

Posted By on Mon, Mar 24, 2014 at 10:58 AM

Food & Wine magazine has announced this year's nominees for People's Best New Chef, and two Nashvillians made the list: Flyte's Matt Lackey (who was nominated last year) and Philip Krajeck of Rolf and Daughters are among 11 chefs singled out in the Southeast region.

Concerning Lackey, the magazine says:

"Why He's Amazing: Because at age 28, he already has combined his farm-kid background with degrees from two culinary institutions to become a champion in the South's local-ingredient movement."

Concerning Krajeck:

"Why He's Amazing: Because his European upbringing and hours logged at some of America's top restaurants are reflected in his rustic Mediterranean food — especially his terrific house-made pastas."

The winner of this honor will be decided by popular vote on the magazine's website. Last year Lackey and Roderick Bailey of The Silly Goose were nominated, and Bailey won, indicating we Nashvillians can click a poll with gusto.

And we're getting used to having Nashville chefs among the nominees. Tandy Wilson of City House and Erik Anderson and Josh Habiger of The Catbird Seat were nominated in 2011 and 2012, respectively.

The voting begins today and finishes up Monday, March 31. The magazine says it allows one vote per IP address per region, so vote now, then tell all your friends.
