Carol Blymire: Chef Love

There is so much chef love backstage and in the press room.  Great to see the collegiality, handshakes, and hugs.  It's a fun brotherhood to watch. Wonder where all the women chefs are....?

Carol Blymire: Tim Hollingsworth

Rising Star Award winner Tim Hollingsworth is backstage beaming, as well he should be. It was fun to watch him come offstage and shake hands with chef Keller, toasting each other. Tim's been in New York since Saturday, doing some work with the Bocuse D'or team. He is 30 and has been cooking since he was 18. I love this guy.

Apron Anxiety: D.C. Gets Snubbed

Best chef in my neck of the woods is next....D.C. Damn, Jeff Michaud the one guy with a resto in Philly won. Oh well. I was hoping for a Voltaggio moment but I guess he's famous enough for now. This goes along with my theory, no good food in D.C.! Besides the obvious ;)

Apron Anxiety: Bernie Sun

Bernie Sun is accepting his award....adorable, self-deprecating, and, of course, drinking wine. He said, "Oh my god, I can't feel my feet!" Very charming. Speech-wise, he is the Sandra Bullock of the night.

There is food everywhere, btw. If my grandmother was here she'd be filling up her purse and shoving things in her sleeves. -Snacktime

Shut Up, Foodies: Cheese Clock?

There is a cheese clock (I KNOW) here and Meatball just said "It's brie o'clock" which caused three of us to cackle so loud the press room stared. Shut Up Foodies: Our own best audience. - Snacktime

Shut Up, Foodies: Julia Childless Arrives

I am here! I have Champagne!! And cheese that I cannot pronounce. There is some guy on the TV that I don't quite recognize, and I have decided that everything should be edible at food awards. Even the glasses. Someone should get on that. -Julia Childless
