The loss Philly suffered when Monica Glass accepted an executive pastry chef gig with Ken Oringers Clio's, was clearly Bostons gain. And that deal just got a little sweeter with word that Glass has scored a slot on Food & Wines Peoples Best New Pastry Chef award, where she's one of the few non-New Yorkers to rep the contests East Region category. Shes also one of only two who are self-taught.

Prior to signing on with Clios, the pâtissier worked at Phillys now-shuttered Fish, where her PB earned a spot on our 101 of Americas Most Crazy-Awesome New Desserts. Before Fish, she served alongside Top Chef-testant Jen Carroll at Phillys 10 Arts, after both served in the trenches at New Yorks Le Bernardin. The voting is open today, and runs through Friday April 8.
