Beard Countdown 

Side Dishes: Award finalists include Vermonters

There were some disappointments for locals in the list of finalists for the 2010 James Beard Foundation Awards, announced on Monday. The Bluebird Tavern and head chefs from Kitchen Table Bistro and Hen of the Wood — all semifinalists — didn’t end up on the roster.

But a few local writers made the cut: Barry Estabrook of Vergennes — formerly of Gourmet magazine — Knopf senior editor and VP Judith Jones, who lives part time in Greensboro; Rowan Jacobsen of Calais; and Jessie Price and the editors of EatingWell.

A final coup for Vermont: Al’s French Frys is one of five establishments to receive “America’s Classics” awards for “timeless appeal” and community character.

How do you feel about eating GMO foods?

  • I don't understand what the fuss is about. I eat them and I'm fine.
  • As long as they're FDA-approved, I don't mind consuming them.
  • GMOs are in most staple foods, so I'm resigned to eating them.
  • I wish they were labeled so I could make informed choices about when to eat them.
  • I'm concerned about potential long-term health effects of consuming GMOs, which haven't yet been studied.
