James Beard 2012

This morning the list for the 2012 James Beard Foundation semifinalists was announced, and as you may suspect it is laden with Oregon chefs and restaurants! The list includes Vitaly Paley of Paley’s Place as outstanding chef, Ken Forkish from Ken’s Artisan as outstanding pastry chef, and a few of the best chef northwest nominations are Naomi Pomeroy from Beast, Chris Israel from Gruner, and Adam Sappington from Country Cat! The finalists will  be announced in Vegas on the 19th of March, so good luck to all the portland prospects, and thanks for making our city taste so good!

About Todd Templeman

I am a product and fashion stylist in Portland OR. But more than that, I love to eat. I love what it makes me think about, or even see. I love that food brings family and friends to your door, or can be your best friend on a lonely night. I love all the aspects that surround great food, and my blog will contain a cross section of the food related happenings in my life and the world around me. Enjoy...
