Yesterday I was honored with the “Community Chef Award” along with seventeen other Chicago chefs mixologists and restaurateurs at the 2011 Star Chefs event.

It was a great honor and humbling experience to be listed with such great talent from around Chicago including; Andrew Zimmerman, Chris Pandel, Jimmy Bannos Jr and Stephanie Izard.

Of course none of this would have been possible without Ms. Star Chef Antoinette who was also a great emcee!

Each chef had a mentor speak on their behalf- mine was Thomas Keller who had to leave town before the event. But he sent kind words and I had the support of my new restaurant family in the house thanks to Natalie, Larry Silver, Alfredo and Paul who all came out to support me along with my girlfriend KZ.

It was a really great night and I’m looking forward to Tavernita even more!
