Chefs of the 2002 James Beard Awards

As we planned our annual gala this past winter, we assigned each chef who will be cooking at the Awards gala a spice (or two or three). You'll see that assignment under their name in these short biographies. As part of our Spice Connection gala theme, the dish that he or she will be serving will spotlight that spice.
