No Texas winners, in fact pretty much just the usual suspects. Daniel Bolud with nine previous awards, Jean-Georges Vongerichten with 25, and Danny Meyer with 20 collective awards still rule New York. Tom Colicchio from Craft got the best chef award.
A West Coast nod went out to Thomas Keller’s wunderkind and chef de cuisine Timothy Hollingsworth who received the Rising Star Award. Hollinsworth also served as U.S. representive at the illustrious Bocuse d’Or competition last year in France where he placed sixth.
In the blog world, Serious Eats took the blog award. This sight is great and I especially love the science stuff from Kenji. Check out his article for turning your beer cooler into a sous vide. (Please be especially careful to watch your food temps or you could end up with botchulism, yuck!) The Peepshi idea came from this sight also.
Congratulations to all the winners!
