The James Beard Foundation today announced its nominees for the 2014 James Beard Awards, which recognize culinary professionals "for excellence and achievement in their fields."

This year's list of semifinalists included a number of Georgia chefs and restaurants, but only two Atlantans made the cut as actual nominees in the national running. Miller Union's Steven Satterfield was nominated in the Best Chef: Southeast category, and (now-San Diego-based) RIchard Blais (Juniper & Ivy, The Spence, Flip) is a finalist in the General Cooking Book Awards category for his Try This at Home: Recipes from My Head to Your Plate.

This year's award ceremony takes place on Friday, May 2 and Monday, May 5.
