Vote Now for People's Best New Pastry Chef

Choose from 50 pastry chefs with at most five years of experience

Tagging along the rest of the awards announcements, Food & Wine has released 50 nominations for the People's Best New Pastry Chef, reserved for pastry chefs with at most five years of experience.

Unlike People's Best New Chef, which divided the country into 10 regions, the People's Best New Pastry Chef nominees are divided into three regions: West, Central, and East.

On the West Coast, candidates include Matthew Tinder from Coi, David Rodriguez from Providence, and Baruch Ellsworth from Canlis.

In the Central region, candidates include Victoria Dearmond from Underbelly, Bronwen Wyatt at La Petite Grocery, Robert Zugmaier at Sidney Street Cafe, and Anna Shovers at The Publican.

As for the East Coast, plenty of New Yorkers have been nominated (Bobb Truitt from Ai Fiori, Laurie Jon Moran at Le Bernardin), but Andrea Litvin at The Spence and Ryan Westover at Poste provide geographical variety, among others.
