Charleston Chefs on the Rise…2008 James Beard Nominees Announced!

Named one of the top 10 foodie towns by the editors of Travelocity, it should be no surprise that 3 Charleston chefs have been nominated for this year’s prestigious James Beard awards, according to the folks at Gastronomic Fight Club who announce the nominees every year.

Sean Brock of McCrady’s was nominated for the Rising Star Chef of the Year Award which honors chefs age 30 or younger whose impressive talent is “likely to have a significant impact on the industry in years to come”.

(By the way, check out Sean Brock’s blog, Ping Island Strike, for some insights into his cooking philosophy and methods.)

2 out of the 5 nominees for the Best Chefs in America Award/ Southeast Division work in Charleston. According to the James Beard Foundation, this award honors “chefs who have set new or consistent standards of excellence in their respective regions.” Congratulations go to Mike Lata of Fig and Robert Stehling of Hominy Grill for your nominations!

In 2007, Charleston’s Matt and Ted Lee won in the Cookbook of the Year category for The Lee Brothers Southern Cookbook.
