It was an amazing production.
I was invited by Huge Galdones to join the photography team covering the 2016 James Beard Awards in Chicago.
My assignments were the VIP's and several wine makers. The VIP's included Mayor Rahm Emmanuel, Sam Toia, Desiree Rogers, and Susan Ungaro. I also covered some of the winners circle back stage and the general gala.
It was a grand production and one that I am very fortunate to be a part of. It is a massive celebration. Think "Super Bowl of Chefs".
Here are my highlights.
