Cloquet native in chef contest


February 26, 2021

Cloquet High School grad Kevin Aho is in the running to be named the world’s Favorite Chef, win $50,000 and be featured in a two-page advertising spread in Bon Appetit magazine. In his entry, Aho says he has been cooking 30 years, 25 of those as executive chef. Should he win the competition — sponsored by Favorite Chef — he said he would split the cash prize “with my team that supported me so much during these trying times.”

The contest is hosted by celebrity chef Eddie Matney. A portion of the proceeds will go to Feeding America, an organization dedicated to fighting domestic hunger through a nationwide network of foodbanks. In a tweet on Feb. 17, Bon Appetit magazine said the contest is not “edit-endorsed” by the magazine, rather Favorite Chef purchased a paid ad in the magazine that intends to spotlight the winner of the contest.
