James Beard Awards

Glenn writes they are the Oscars of Food, but food these days is more important than movies. On doit manger pour vivre, as Moliere had it. Of course he also said Pas vivre pour manger–my problem. Nevertheless I have to give a shout out to the James Beard people for giving “best restaurateur” to Tom Douglas. I’ve never eaten a bad meal in any of his Seattle restaurants–and I’ve eaten quite a few with more to come.
