Nominated in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013...

Becoming a chef and eventually restaurant owner is no small task.  Just ask this guy.  I truly admire the skills and dedication required to make it in that business.  Personally (for many reasons) I could never do it.

My dream is to hit both coasts and dine at Per Se as well as The French Laundry.  Definitely Bucket List items, those trips are more than a few years down the road.  Until then, it is far easier to dine at one of my favorite "special/celebratory/really treat myself" incredible restaurants with an award-winning chef much closer to home.

After many years of nominations, I would like to say congratulations to Chef Justin Aprahamian of Sanford Restaurant on receiving a 2014 James Beard Award (Best Chef/Midwest.)  It is certainly well-deserved.  He is definitely part of an impressive list.
