Second Annual Best Chef Cook Off

Sher YipI wasn't able to go to this year's Second Annual Best Chef Cook Off at Lakeview because I was out of town (and state and country!). Don't worry, I'll post some (brief) reviews from Montreal soon, but I wanted to share some photos that superstar photographer Sher Yip took while there. BRB, salivating over all these amaze dishes.
