Kevin Willmann named among 2011 Best New Chefs by Food & Wine Magazine

April 5th 11:04am, 2011

040511_kwA Saucy congratulations to Kevin Willmann! The chef-owner of Farmhaus is one of 10 chefs across the country named a 2011 Best New Chef today by Food & Wine Magazine, according to the Post-Dispatch’s Joe Bonwich and Evan Benn.

Since leaving Erato on Main and opening his own restaurant in South City early last year, Willmann has drawn plenty of praise from the culinary community. This year, he garnered a semifinalist nomination for a James Beard Foundation Award in the Best Chef: Midwest category as well as a nomination for Food & Wine’s People’s Best New Chef for the Midwest region, a new award that’s voted on by the public.

The annual Best New Chef award, as described on Food & Wine Magazine’s Web site, honors “exceptionally talented men and women who are pushing culinary boundaries in America.” Willmann joins the ranks of local chef Gerard Craft, who was bestowed the honor in 2008. The complete list of winners will be announced today at 5 p.m. Eastern.
