Seattle v. Portland Beards Faceoff

james-beard-medal-media-awards-150.jpgThe James Beard Awards' Best Chef Northwest category usually boils down to a faceoff between chefs in Portland and Seattle. In the spirit of public service, Eater PDX gave Seattle a helpful primer on chefs Chris Israel, Andy Ricker and Cathy Whims. Eater Seattle returned the favor with a rundown of local nominees Matt Dillon and Ethan Stowell. For the second year in a row, Portland has fielded more nominees, but a Seattle chef usually emerges the victor. Could this be the year that changes? [Eater PDX/Eater Seattle]
