Chef Edouardo Jordan Wins Big at the James Beard Awards

Chef Edouardo Jordan Wins Big at the James Beard Awards

- Raleigh's own Ashley Christensen didn't take home the prize for outstanding chef in the country at the annual James Beard Foundation awards Monday.

The James Beard Awards are often referred to as the Oscars of the culinary world.

Compton, who in early March opened a second restaurant called Bywater American Bistro, was a nominee previous year in the same category.

Gavin Kaysen of Spoon and Stable won the honor after being nominated in March, along with two other Minneapolis chefs, Steven Brown of Tilia and Ann Kim of Young Joni. After years of running his family's Scott's Bar-B-Que in Hemingway, S.C. Scott opened his Charleston location last year, and last night he thanked the voters, his wife, and "all y'all" for the accolade.

Freret Street cocktail lounge Cure won Outstanding Bar Program, which a year ago went to Arnaud's French 75. Miles was on stage again with the entire crew of Highlands when it won Outstanding Restaurant at the end of the evening-it was a very good night for Alabama. This year's nominees included New Orleans contenders Slade Rushing of Brennan's, and Kristen Essig and Michael Stoltzfus of Coquette. She previously won the Beard Award for Best Chef New York City.

Hamilton also is a previous nominee, earning a nomination in the same top category past year.

Belinda Leong and Michel Suas were named outstanding bakers. She was a contestant on Bravo's "Top Chef: New Orleans". Last year, Arnaud's French 75, led by head bartender Chris Hannah, took the Outstanding Bar Program award.

Established in 1990, the James Beard Foundation Awards are named in honor of the late chef and cookbook author who is credited with introducing gourmet cuisine to America.
