The James Beard Awards were last night.

Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic (D.C., DE, MD, NJ, PA, VA)
Maricel Presilla
Cucharamama Hoboken, NJ

Billy and I ate there for our anniversary and Maricel treated us like royalty. We can see the fire from the wood-burning oven from our kitchen window. I’m so excited for her win… she’s earned it. It’s still one of the best meals I have ever had.
