Yucatán Wins Two James Beard Awards

Last Friday night, the food world gathered in New York City for the 2015 James Beard Foundation Awards ceremony. Our very own David Sterling walked away with the top book award for Yucatán: Recipes from a Culinary Expedition. Chef Sterling was awarded two medals for his work, 2015 Cookbook of the Year and International Cookbook, and in his speech he confessed to being obsessed with the Amazon rankings of his 6.5 pound, 576-page tome and revealed that it was inspired by a meal of smoky pork belly on the Mexican peninsula.
