Lunch Room Chatter: James Beard edition

The latest in food news, ideas and philosophy, just in time for your lunch break.

Jose Andres. (Sarah L. Voisin - WASHINGTON POST)
Jose Andres was the star of Monday night’s James Beard Foundation Awards, earning the nod for the country’s outstanding chef over Gary Danko (Restaurant Gary Danko in San Francisco), Suzanne Goin (Lucques in Los Angeles), Paul Kahan (Blackbird in Chicago) and C harles Phan (The Slanted Door in San Francisco). When I asked Andres what this victory meant for Spain, he said, “This means more for Washington.”
