Local James Beard semi-finalists

Posted By on Thu, Mar 20, 2008 at 12:06 PM

Two Little Rock chefs are semi-finalists for a James Beard award, the highest culinary honor in the industry. James Hale, the chef and owner of Acadia Restaurant, and Lee Richardson, the executive chef at Ashley's in the Capital, are both semi-finalists in the “Best Chef: South (Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana and Mississippi)” category. Ashley's is also a nominee for Best New Restaurant. The James Beard Foundation receives some 10,000 nominations and then makes the first cut to 20 semi-finalists in 19 categories. On March 24, the foundation will announce the five finalists for each category.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
