On a related note, I like following this site from Chicago called The Chicago Reader, mostly for their food and drinks section. They have a cool ongoing feature called "Key Ingredient" where Chicago chefs challenge each other to make a dish with a difficult ingredient (think rabbit lung). Once the chef completes the challenge, he/she gets to pick the next chef and ingredient. The most recent one is Beverly Kim. I really liked her so I googled her name and found out she's a contestant on Top Chef: Teaxs!
