The Voting Poll is Open!!!

The 16th round of I Heart Cooking Clubs will be starting at the beginning of April! This week we will be voting on our next featured chef who we will be cooking with from 4/3/17-10/1/17. For this next round of voting we are focusing on four award-winning male chefs: Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Ming Tsai, David Rocco, and Gordon Ramsay.  

Participants may vote (once, please) for the chef they would like to cook with for the next six months. There is a link to each chef's website on their name below so you can get to know them and check out some of their recipes before you vote.

The voting poll is located at the top of our page, on the right sidebar. Please only vote once. Voting will be open from now until midnight EST on Monday, March 13th. At that time we will update the sidebar with the new winner!

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is an English celebrity chef, television personality, journalist and food writer, widely known for his River Cottage TV series and books and his back-to-basics approach to cooking and his commitment to seasonal, ethically-produced food.
