Bravo has revealed the cheftestants for "Top Chef" Boston, and one lone Chicagoan, Trenchermen executive sous chef Rebecca LaMalfa, has made the cut. LaMalfa, who grew up in Chico, CA, has been with the restaurant since its opening.

Before moving to Chicago LaMalfa spent a good deal of time working at some high-profile Las Vegas restaurants, including "Top Chef" head judge Tom Colicchio's Craft Steak. She also has a deeper connection to Chicago as she is married to Thomas Lents, executive chef at the Michelin-starred Sixteen. See how LaMalfa fares when Top Chef kicks off its twelfth season in Boston on Wednesday, October 15.
