James Beard Award Nominees

On March 16th, the James Beard Foundation released the nominations for this year's finalists for their sought-after award. The actual awards ceremony and reception will be held on May 8, at an event celebrating "the culinary legacy of New Orleans." A portion of the admission price will be donated to a charitable fund established to support the rebuilding of New Orleans’ restaurant community.

The full list and press release are: here.There are a couple of nominees already on my wishlist: Jill Norman's The Cooks Book (nominated in the General Cooking Cateogry) and Bones by Jennifer McLagan (from the Single Subject category). I'll have to take a look at a few more of those listed. The list of finalists has also turned me on to a new website: Leite's Culinaria.
