Joey's executive chef dishes on cooking at the James Beard House, battling on Iron Chef

Joey's executive chef dishes on cooking at the James Beard House, battling on Iron Chef

Getting invited to cook at the James Beard House is a big deal. Getting invited to cook again is an even bigger deal. This Saturday, November 20, Chris Mills, executive chef of Joey Restaurants, heads back to the House to cook for the second time, a prestigious invitation by the James Beard Foundation with criteria that examine the chef's reputation, demonstrated excellence in their discipline and financial stability, amongst other factors.  

Besides the guest chef dinners at the New York City institution, the Foundation— named after the late James Beard, legendary chef and food writer— engages people with food through workshops, readings and conferences, and provides scholarships to aspiring food professionals. The Foundation also organizes the esteemed James Beard Foundation Awards, which honor chefs, restaurateurs, cookbook authors, food journalists and others leading the food and beverage industry.

Chris Mills, 41, has long prepared for the challenge.

A day at the Taste

I got the chance to check out A Taste of Edmonds today and it was well worth it! I got to see the wonderful items for sale and ran into Danielle Garfoot and her 10 month old twins, Morgan & Riley who loved Kranial Komfort's hats and headbands. We then checked out the food booths and tried as many yummy treats as we could fit's tough, there's some great options! I even won a t-shirt for answering the question of "How old is Edmonds?" Do you know the answer? Check it out, this is a fun event and it's sure to be another success for the Chamber!
