Aspiring female culinarians: think you have what it takes to be the next great chef? Put your mise en place where your mouth is and apply for a chance to compete in the Vermilion's Women in Culinary Leadership Cookoff.

To enter, you must submit a resume, an essay or YouTube video, and a recipe for one contemporary Indian-Latin dish through Vermilion’s online entry form by Friday, February 15. Eight finalists will be chosen to participate in the cookoff at New York City's Vermilion restaurant in February, where each competitor will execute her recipe and conduct a brief interview with a panel of judges. The panel will choose two winners, who will participate in a one-year leadership program at Vermilion's New York and Chicago locations; receive a weekly $500 internship grant from the Women in Culinary Leadership Scholarship; and experience a one-week operations internship at the James Beard House. The winners will also have the opportunity to work with one of the participating Chefs for Women celebrity chefs.
