Courtesy Bmore Media – I stepped into the former home of the late cookbook author James Beard, where a number of folks were gathered in the foyer as well as the front anteroom. I spied the open kitchen in the New York brownstone, pausing to take photographs and watch the chefs hard at work.

What the Emmys are to television, the Oscars to the movies is what the James Beard Foundation Awardsare to the culinary industry. Snagging a nomination for the highly coveted award is a badge of honor.Woodberry Kitchen’s Spike Gjerde and Charleston’sCindy Wolf were among the mid-Atlantic nominees this year while PABU, the Japanese restaurant in the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore, was nominated one of the best new restaurants.

Courtesy Bmore Media – I’ve been writing for a number of years about food — from childhood reminiscences to rants about pet peeves. My life revolves around food and I know I’m not alone. There are others just like me waiting to hear about the perfect shrimp salad sandwich or German chocolate cake and it is for those folks as well as me that I write about food.
