Early Spring, James Beard 'Best Chef' semi finalist!

Wow, you know when i got my first car I didn't think life could get any better but just last week I found out i'm a semi finalist in a group of really good Chef for a James Beard award.  It's a surreal yet wonderful feeling to be in this place and especially a southern Chef.  

If I go all the way or not an inch further doesn't matter sort of, I've been selected through a large group of chefs and i feel as if I've won already just being here and seen by my peers as one of the best which put me here as a finalist.  It's the greatest recognition one in my career field could ever hope to get.    March 15th will be the date I hear if I made it to the finalist round so buckle you seatbelts and ride with me till it stops, then we'll go eat and live happy ever after.  the end

There's more news but i'm to excited right now so look later and i'll post more spring happenings, xo sydney, the stove person
