And it’s no secret that we love shining the spotlight on our grub-loving men and women. Ahem, you may recall a particular roundup of the hottest male chefs in town? Well, we’re flipping the script this time and calling out some of our favorite ladies who are heating up local kitchens. We shot the breeze with these inspiring women — from pastry pros to chefs — who are all definite stars in the making (check out a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot!). Click through to catch the 411 these lovely gals dished out and served up.
