Battling for the title of Best Vegan Chef, which was ultimately won by Andrea’s Alternative Cuisine’s Andrea Cataldo, eight Chicago-based meat- and dairy-free chefs whipped up their best eats for a panel of judges and guests. Some of the food entries in the running included Enchilada Pizza, Baked Macaroni and Cheese, Chinese Dumplings, and Maple-Marinated Seitan.
