posted by October 15 at 15:55 PMon
Now you can nominate your favorite restaurant/chef/etc. for the country’s most prestigious culinary awards…
The 2009 James Beard Foundation Restaurant and Chef Awards Voting Ballot
Calling all opinionated diners!
Participating in the James Beard Foundation Awards process has never been easier. Tell us your name, e-mail address, and state of residence, then submit your suggestions for nominees in up to 19 categories, ranging from Best New Restaurant to Rising Star Chef of the Year….
It’s a little unclear what the Foundation will actually do with your nominations, but for those who love to submit…. Last year’s winner for Best Chef: Northwest was Cafe Juanita’s Holly Smith. And everybody’s favorite Japanese restaurant Maneki won an America’s Classics Awards. (Maneki was also just honored in the pages of Gourmet as one of 20 “legendary restaurants”—unfortunately it’s not online.)
Who the hell’s James Beard? Here’s a great article about why you don’t know.
