Chef Cindy Wolf denied James Beard Award for a sixth time

Baltimore chef Cindy Wolf will have to wait at least another year before taking home a James Beard Award after Philadelphia chef Greg Vernick beat her for the title of “best chef: mid-Atlantic.”

The winners of the awards, considered the Oscars of the culinary industry, were announced at the James Beard Foundation Awards Gala, held at the Lyric Opera of Chicago Monday night.

In addition to Vernick, of Vernick Food & Drink, Wolf was up against another Philadelphia chef, Richard Landau of Vedge, along with Washington, D.C., chefs Amy Brandwein of Centrolina and Tom Cunanan of Bad Saint.

Wolf could not immediately be reached for comment...
