It's that truly special time of year when we turn chefs into pieces of meat. That's right, it's time to submit nominations for Eater's annual Hottest Chef competition. We heard all of your complaints—really, we did—and this year we're condensing the competition into a one-day chef-off, fittingly, on Valentine's Day, and known around here as Hot Chefs Day.
And for all of you who bitched about your favorite hot chef not being nominated, here's your chance to redeem yourself. Readers have until February 11 to submit their favorites to nominate, and there will be a one-day battle royale to crown the 2013 champion.
Last year, Jason Cichonski won the whole thing—of course—so he's not eligible this year. So, send your favorites to the tipline with a decent photo and they'll all be gathered up for the competition, or put 'em in the comments below. It's on.
