Rucker on Beard: Bring It On Home

Following yesterday's release of the James Beard Foundation nominations, pretty much the Oscars/BAFTAS/Golden Globes/Film Critics Circle awards of the restaurant industry, Gabe Rucker of Le Pigeon, nominated twice--once for Rising Star Chef of the Year (hoo-ha!) and once for Best Chef: Northwest--weighed in on how much of a heavyweight it could and/or might make him:

Let's bring one to Portland this year!!
Aw. As ever, it's never about the chef, and always about the town. Meanwhile, Matt Lightner of Castagna checks in again, realizing that there is in fact something to celebrate about:
I am very excited and grateful for all who voted for us.
More, particularly from the girls, who particularly represented this year, soon.
