For the last 17 years, the San Francisco Chronicle has crowned the up-and-coming young chefs in the Bay Area. The five honored this year:
- Melissa Chou of Aziza
- Lisa Eyherabide of Gitane
- Justin Simoneaux of Moss Room
- Rodrigo Da Silva of Corso
- Louis Maldonado of Cafe Majestic
"This year's group is just as promising and diverse as their predecessors: One is of Chinese descent, another is from Brazil, and a third from France. Then we have two country boys—one from Ukiah and the other from Louisiana."
