James Beard Foundation Finalists Named: Colorado Has Two

By Ruth Tobias
March 18, 2014

Well, Denver's chefs didn't score a James Beard Foundation nomination this year, but our six semifinalists, and their local colleagues, are winners in our book. See our interviews with 2014 nominees Yasmin Lozada-HissomFrank Bonanno, Alex Seidel, Jeff Osaka, Sean Kenyon and Jorel Pierce.

However, Aspen's The Little Nell is still up for Outstanding Wine Program, and Denver's own Adrian Miller (pictured with banana pudding) is a finalist for Soul Food: The Surprising Story of an American Cuisine, One Plate at a Time. Congratulations!
