Got a dream in your heart and an itchy Twitter finger? You could win two tickets to tomorrow night's Food & Wine Best New Chefs party in New York City. No, seriously – it happens.
Way back in '09, when Ms. Sarah LeTrent was a college senior, she followed Food & Wine's Editor-in-Chief Dana Cowin (@fwscout) as she Tweeted clues to that year's inductees (they're revealed at the party) and had more correct than anyone else. She won the tickets, flew her Tarheel carcass to New York and walked on up to Kat Kinsman, who had Tweeted as @slashfood that she'd be wearing a green and black dress, should anyone care to say hello.
So - we're not saying that entering the contest is gonna score you an editorial gig at a food website, but if you win, you'll at least get to bask in the taste delights of past Best New Chef winners Tom Colicchio, Missy Robbins, Michael Anthony and others, as well as Top Chef Season 7 winner Kevin Sbraga - all of whom will be cooking at the party. Sounds like a pretty delicious opportunity to us.
