Getting invited to cook at the James Beard House in NYC is huge! As most of you know, the James Beard Awards are the Oscars of the restaurant industry. Word on the street is that if you're invited to cook at the James Beard House, then you're likely being vetted for future accolades.
"We invite chefs to participate in events at the James Beard House in New York City and at events abroad to allow people to experience America’s dynamic cuisine first hand. We also administer the annual James Beard Foundation Awards, which recognize and honor excellence among chefs, cookbook authors, food journalists, restaurant designers, and others working in the food and beverage industry."
Kudos to Chef Davis and the staff at Terra!
*Don't forget that on Saturday, February 27, 2010 from 4:00-6:00 PM, Slow Food Columbia will host a Barbeque Dinner (with vegetarian options) to celebrate local, fair, sustainable food and raise awareness of the Slow Food mission.
The dinner will be held at City Roots Farm, the much-anticipated new organic & sustainable urban farm in Rosewood near Owens Field.
Tickets for this dinner can be purchased online only, quantities are limited, and (we're thrilled to report) space is filling up fast for this very special event.
Buy your tickets today!
