Returning for his fourth appearance at the festival is the always entertaining Chef in the Hat, Thierry Rautureau. Chef/Owner of Luc and Loulay Kitchen & Bar in Seattle (the Seattle Met Restaurant of the Year 2014), his culinary knowledge, combined with his enjoyable sense of humor, will make for an entertaining afternoon. He has won various awards including the James Beard Award for Best Chef in the Pacific Northwest in 1998, and has been awarded the Chevalier de l'Ordre Du Merite Agricole by the French. Chef Rautureau will emcee and moderate two cook-offs featuring four regionally accomplished chefs, all of which have proven themselves in numerous cooking competitions.
