James Beard Award Reception

James Beard Award Reception
The Dispatch Kitchen at the North Market
59 Spruce Street, 2nd Floor
Sunday, March 21, 3:30–5:00 p.m.
No charge / donation accepted at door

It’s not every day that a Columbus chef is named a semi-finalist for a James Beard Foundation award.  In fact, to our knowledge, it’s never happened before.  But this year, Chef Kent Rigsby of Rigsby’s Kitchen and Chef Magdiale Wolmark of Dragonfly Neo-V became the first.  (You can read about them here in the Cleveland Plain Dealer or here in the Columbus Alive!)

We want to honor that achievement, and we want to give the members of the community the opportunity to do so as well.

The North Market has generously offered us the Dispatch Kitchen, where a few of our group’s home cooks will produce passed appetizers and refreshments.  (To help defray their costs, donations will be accepted at the door.)  The chefs and their families will be in attendance to meet you and yours and to join us in celebrating the recognition that they’ve earned and helped to bestow on Columbus.

We hope you can attend.  If you can, a quick email to would help us get a rough head count.  (And if you can’t, we hope you’ll congratulate them yourself next time you see them.)
