James Beard Nominees for Best Chefs in America

Slide 1 of 20

Prosciutto Consommé with Arugula and Melon

Nominee for Best Chef: Great Lakes: Michael Carlson, an F&W Best New Chef 2006

Carlson's prosciutto consommé with melon balls is a clever riff on the classic prosciutto-and-melon combination. What makes it astonishing is the crystal-clear flavor of the delicate prosciutto broth—such a great alternative to the usual chicken or beef.
