James Beard Awards Nominees

The James Beard Foundation is in the middle of announcing the finalists for this year's James Beard Awards, on Twitter right now. Seattle's Rebekah Denn has been nominated in the Best Newspaper Feature with Recipes category. Ms. Denn's comments on the nomination: "This is about the nicest thing that's happened to a newly unemployed food writer." (and Rebekah, I will totally buy you that drink.) Suck it, Hearst.

Congratulations to Seattle nominees for Best Chef: Northwest - Maria Hines (Tilth), Joseba Jiménez de Jiménez (Harvest Vine, Txori), Jason Wilson (Crush) and Ethan Stowell (How to Cook a Wolf, Union, Tavolata, Anchovies & Olives) It was almost a total Seattle sweep. Suck it, Portland.

And once again Tom Douglas (Dahlia Lounge, Etta's, Palace Kitchen, Lola, et al) has been nominated in the category of Outstanding Restaurateur.

Now I am going to un-follow the James Beard Foundation because, though I love their work, the tweeting is out of control.
