Awards Season

Dearly-departed and Portland Monthly writer Mike Thelin--co-author of this month's exhaustively comprehensive Food Lovers Guide, on which more in a minute--weighs in on last week's James Beard nominations. Thelin's gone on and on, on and off record about his support for Castagna's Matt Lightner, so no surprise that he's unsurprised there, but he's also been known for his support of Nostrana's Cathy Whims, who he says is "long overdue to win top Northwest honors." Shortlist is announced March 22nd. And bonus tease: Clyde Common's chef de cuisine, Chris DeMinno, is gonna be helping out with the gala courtesy an invite from former boss and current Blue Hill chef Dan Barber. PDX represent.
