You won’t see a traditional chef’s hat on winner Michael Keaveny (in fact, he’s taken a more supervisory role at tavola as of late, handing the reins to executive chef Loren Mendosa) or runner-up Angelo Vangelopoulos, but readers know those things are just for show anyway. The proof is in the pudding. Or, the pappardelle, as the case may be.
