It's supposed to hit 70 today, with a little bit of thunder, if you know what we mean and while we've never been great at weather metaphors we are about to get real good at giving you some eye candy. Who is the hottest? That's for you, our loyal Eater readers, to decide in the Eater Hottest Chef Competition.
Here's how we're going to do it: 32 chefs will compete in eight preliminary rounds of four chefs each, with Eater Dallas readers doing the voting. As there were significantly fewer lady chefs nominated than guy chefs, we've mixed them in with everyone else.
The winners from each round will then compete in the finals to determine the dreamiest, sexiest, hottest chef in Dallas, who will then go on to compete on Eater National against the winners from our sister sites in New York, Miami, Austin, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles and elsewhere.
The first round will kick off at noon today so be ready to vote Sidenote: we'll be keeping a close watch on any suspicious behavior, so please no ballot-stuffing, because disqualifications are always an option. Let's make it a clean fight.
