James Beard Texas nominees

It’s March 21, and we all know what that means… yeah yeah, it’s the first day of spring but more importantly James Beard Foundation nominees have been announced!

First I was really excited to see some Dallas hot spots as JBF semifinalists; unfortunately, none of those made it to nominees list. *Cries* I’m collecting my tears of pain, extra salty, for a brine.

 BUT City of Ate and Alice Laussade of The Observer are nominated for Group Food Blog and Humor (respectively). Go Big D!

 Fear not Texas, as Texans do not fear! (<– huh?) It would have been really sad if we didn’t have any nominees in the Best Southwest Chef category but thanks to the following chefs for representing Texas:

– Bruce Auden of Biga on the West in San Antonio
– Bryan Caswell of Reef in Houston
– Tyson Cole of Uchi/Uchiko in Austin (a former Longhorn!)
