2013 James Beard Restaurant and Chef Awards

Ok so this is like the foodie world’s Oscar.  It’s intense.  A number of amazing people won but this is my one big shout-out - if you ever end up in TN, please good lord make your way to Blackberry Farm.  I’ve been multiple times and it’s simply one of the most fun, delightful, delicious experiences I’ve ever had.  Click thru to all the winners via Eater.

Best Chef: Southeast - Joseph Lenn @ The Barn at Blackberry Farm, Walland, TN.
