James Beard Awards

The 2010 James Beard Foundation Awards were just released, basically they’re the Oscars of the professional cooking world.  Oregon was well represented, with nine chefs and Higgins restaurant making the shortlist for chef (well in the Northwest) and restaurant of the year.  Ping was nominated for best new restaurant and two chefs made the rising star category (best chef under 30).

As great as Higgins is, it’s a bit hard to believe it made the restaurant of the year list over other, more impressive, Portland institutions.
