*Sponsored* Chef Tim McDiarmid of The Good Kind has been selected for the 2019 Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Program offered by the James Beard Foundation.
The James Beard Foundation on Wednesday named McHugh a semi-finalist for its “Best Chef” of the Southwest award, considered the U.S. food industry’s highest honor.
The James Beard Foundation has named San Antonio chef Steve McHugh of Cured a 2018 nominee for “Best Chef” of the Southwest.
Until recently, a number of Texas chefs were noticeably absent from the James Beard Foundation Awards, which annually recognize the best chefs and restaurants in the country. A San Antonio chef has never made the list of winners, but the Foundation is beginning to recognize the contributions of chefs across Texas, including this year’s James Beard finalist, Chef Steve McHugh of Cured at The Pearl Brewery.
