Big Nods for Two Local Chefs

Local Chefs Nominated for Prestigious Awards

On a national food stage, Omaha gets little credit for our vast culinary scene and impact on the food world. However, times they are a changing and the last two years have been an amazing journey for the Omaha food community. Last week, two local chefs were nominated for the very prestigious, 2012 James Beard Awards.

Chef and Owner Clayton Chapman of The Grey Plume, nominated for Rising Star Chef of the Year and Chef Paul Kulik of The Boiler Room, nominated as Best Chef: Midwest. From local conversations to national magazines, these two chefs are some of the best in the business. We are just fortunate enough to have them in the Metro.

Up next for the nominees is to make sure their ship – or kitchen – is tight and that the staff is alert and ready. The judging panel will test out the cuisine of all the nominees. The final nominees are announced on Monday, March 19, live from Las Vegas.
