One of the highlights of this past week came on Wednesday, when Quincy native Ryan Hutmacher became the next Weight Watchers Chef. Hutmacher, who is now a chef working in Chicago, beat out contestants from around the country in a five-week competition on the ABC television program 'The Chew.' 


ABC has video posted to their website from the final "battle" in the contest. You can watch online (for free) the Dinner Party Battle, the judges' responses to the dishes the final two contestants (Ryan and Lisa) prepared, the final results, and Ryan's reaction to winning the Search For The Weight Watchers Chef.

The site has also posted video from previous battles in the Next Weight Watchers Chef contest that are also free to view.

As the winner of the Search For The Weight Watchers Chef, Ryan has won a one-year consulting contract with Weight Watchers, and a cash prize.
