Congrats to Flaky Tart/James Beard
Marie Jackson has been nominated for a James Beard award for outstanding pastry chef! What a feather in her cap :) - congratulations Marie it's well deserved!
She surely does deserve the nod. It will be even more difficult to get her pastries unless I get there the minute she opens-her pastries are great....
While it's true that she was nominated, I don't believe she is one of the five finalists in the Outstanding Pastry Chef division. Or am I misinterpreting various web postings?
A year later, and Marie Jackson is again a semifinalist for the James Beard award for Outstanding Pastry Chef! The finalists will be announced in March.
