Nominations are closing tomorrow for Gambit's third annual Emerging Chefs Challenge, the annual event where up-and-coming culinary whizzes present their specialties to members of the public, who then vote on the winner. The 2013 champion was Nick Lama of Gautreau's, and the 2014 winner was Le Foret's Brandon Felder. This year's event will be held July 8.

If you know a local chef who has worked as a head chef or chef/owner for fewer than three years and is currently employed in the New Orleans area, send a brief biography and reasons why he or she should be honored to Deadline is May 7.
