Congrats to the James Beard Award Winners

It was a big weekend in the food world and I just wanted to give a shout out and congratulations to all the James Beard Award Winners. Starting with all of the NY winners including Michael Anthony of Gramercy Tavern, Christina Tosi from Momofuku Milk Bar, and Daniel Humm from Eleven Madison Park. I especially want to congratulate Michael Anthony for winning Best NYC Chef after having emergency heart surgery late last year. You're definitely a trooper. Once again, I want to recognize all the hard work of all my fellow Chopped judges and especially Ted Allen for winning a James Beard Media award this year. I'm proud to be a part of such a noteworthy show.

I also can't forget to mention my culinary mentor and dear friend Charlie Trotter, who won the JBF Award for Humanitarian of the Year. You deserve that and so much more, Charlie!
