New, 9 comments

And now, just a good photo of Portland's Ken Forkish (Ken's Artisan Bakery) and Gabriel Rucker (Le Pigeon), celebrating their respective James Beard Award wins last night. Forkish, who sadly did not prevail in the Outstanding Pastry Chef category (Brooks Headley of NYC's Del Posto took home the award), donned his JBA Book Award for Flour Water Salt Yeast. Rucker took home the prize last night for Best Chef: Northwest.

Forkish Tweeted the celebratory photo this morning, with the caption "Two James Beards kissing! Congrats to Gabe! and I prefer his outfit!"
