Flask Bracelets, Killer Veggie Burgers and More From The 2014 James Beard Awards
Last night, the country's culinary glitterati gathered together for the 2014 James Beard Awards at NYC's Lincoln Center.
This past Friday, F&W took home an award for best visual storytelling at the 2014 James Beard Foundation Book, Broadcast & Journalism Awards. The event was thrilling, but it was nothing compared with last night, when the country’s culinary glitterati gathered for the main event: The 2014 James Beard Awards at NYC’s Lincoln Center.
Winners included many F&W Best New Chefs, such as class of 2014’s Dave Beran of Chicago’s Next; Chris Shepherd (2013) of Houston’s Underbelly; Daniel Patterson (1997) of San Francisco’s Coi; and the People’s Best New Chef 2011 Jamie Bissonnette of Boston’s Coppa. But as many tweets noted, last night was all about the ladies: Boston’s Barbara Lynch was named Outstanding Restaurateur; Ashley Christensen of Poole’s Downtown Diner in Raleigh, North Carolina, won for Best Chef: Southeast; Naomi Pomeroy of Portland, Oregon’s Beast won for Best Chef: Northwest; Sue Zemanick of Gautreau’s in New Orleans took Best Chef: South; April Bloomfield won Best Chef: New York City; and Outstanding Chef went to L.A.’s Nancy Silverton.
