Are you ready for some hotness? The First Annual Hottest Chef in Maine competition begins now. Out of all the nominations, Eater chose 12 hot chefs, who will face off in four rounds of preliminary voting. There will be two semifinal rounds leading up to the hot final. Each poll will be open for one hour. To start things off, two Portland chefs - Matt Ginn of Five Fifty-Five and Matt Chamberlain of Crooked Mile Cafe - face Ben Hasty of When Pigs Fly in Kittery.
