Film fanatics have the Academy Awards; chefs, restaurateurs, and food professionals have the James Beard Awards. Deemed by many as “the Oscars” of the food and wine world, the 2009 James Beard Awards are being presented this evening at Lincoln Center in New York City. The theme for this year’s event is “Women in Food” and we are thrilled to announce that two of LUPEC Boston’s very own will be mixing drinks at the Gala Reception immediately following the award presentation. President Misty Kalkofen, a.k.a. Hanky Panky, and recent recruit Josey Packard, a.k.a. Joe Rickey, will be mixing and mingling with the 800 prestigious guests in attendance. We expect immediate text messages to find out who won “Best Chef Northeast” and will be sipping on the original creations they designed for the event as we wait with baited breath.
