Meredith Arthur: Hines wins Best Chef: Northwest
May 04, 2009
I hadn't heard of Seattle-based chef Maria Hines, but she made a great entrance. She was out cooking for the event and came running in to accept her Best Chef: Northwest award in the nick of time. When she did make it to the stage she thanked her wife for allowing her to put a lien on the house to open the restaurant. It was adorable and showed how truly hardworking chefs really are.
