Chefs from Mateo, Nana’s, and Scratch are 2015 James Beard Award semi-finalists

I just spotted the list of nominees for the prestigious culinary award over at WRAL. I had to double check that I wasn’t looking at last year’s nominees, seeing as how two of the Durham chefs are repeats from last year:

  • Best chef in the southeast: Scott Howell of Nana’s
  • Best chef in the southeast: Matt Kelly of Mateo
  • Best pastry chef: Phoebe Lawless of Scratch

I can personally vouch for the quality of all three of these establishments. Check ’em out.
