Going to NYC for Beard Awards!
March 23, 2009, 8:45 am
Filed under: Awards/Recognition

Hi, Everyone,

It looks like I’ve officially received my third James Beard nomination for Best Chef: Northwest. I’m greatly honored and I look forward to attending the awards ceremony on May 4 in New York and seeing colleagues from across the country. Perhaps even more exciting is that I was invited to cook at the gala reception after the awards ceremony. The theme of the “Oscars of the culinary world” this year is Women in Food. So, for the reception, the Beard Foundation invited more than 20 female chefs from across the country to strut their stuff for what is no doubt one of the most star-studded food events of the year. Holly Smith, who won the medal last year, will be bringing a taste of Cafe Juanita to the gala reception.

Congratulations to my fellow local nominees in assorted categories: Tom Douglas, Rebekah Denn, Ethan Stowell, Joseba Jimenez de Jimenez, and Jason Wilson. Seattle will be well represented!

A Promotion for Larkin

Hello, Everyone,

I have some very exciting news! I recently promoted my sous chef, Larkin Young, to Chef de Cuisine. The chef de cuisine is more than the chef’s right hand. The chef de cuisine brings his ideas to the menu, helps provide and add structure to the kitchen, and mentors the cooks.

He has brought so much to us in the kitchen at Tilth. He’s a pleasure to work with, is super creative, has amazing technique, and is incredibly passionate about cooking. I’m very happy to have him in charge of my kitchen and look forward to his helping me push the limits of what we can do in our kitchen at Tilth!
If you come in to dinner, please give him a big congratulations!

Since Frank Bruni’s Dinner…

Hi, Everyone,

It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since Frank Bruni’s review appeared in the New York times. I was blown away by the effect of that review and how it brought so many new guests to Tilth. I am grateful for the support from such a prestigious restaurant critic and publication.

Well, we hope to see you soon — even if it’s just for a glass of wine and a quick bite.

Great Dinner at Rover’s

Hello All,

Our first Chef’s Table Dinner in the 7-part series was fantastic.

It was truly an inspiration and honor to cook side-by-side with Thierry, Johnathon, Holly, Joseba and Jason. Thierry did a tremendous job hosting all of us at his restaurant.

I’m very much looking forward to the next dinner here at Tilth — which is already sold out. Harvest Vine and Lark are sold out as well. There are only a few seats left at Crush and Cafe Juanita, so I’d make your reservations now. For more info, check out this link.

*** (UPDATE: The dinners at Rover’s and Tilth are sold out. There are only a few seats left at the Lark dinner. Due to the sold-out dinners, there will be no more package deals available.) ***

Hello, Everyone,

We have only 20 seats left for the first Chefs’ Table Dinner series. It will be at Rover’s on Wednesday, February 25. Seats are going fast, so I recommend calling Rover’s to make your reservation now. It could be a great way to celebrate a late Valentine’s Day.

Please check out our upcoming events page for more information.
