Dallas Pulls in Six 2019 James Beard Semifinalist Nominations

February 27, 2019

It is no surprise to me that Ricardo “Ricchi” Sanchez is nominated for Best Pastry Chef for his work at Bullion. As I have lamented, it’s been a while since we’ve had strong contenders for the designation, aside from Maggie Huff, who has worked staunchly with Matt McCallister at FT33 and now at the soon-to-open Homewood. She was our last recipient of the nomination, in 2017. This year, Sanchez faces stiff competition (Atelier Crenn in San Francisco, République in Los Angeles, and the talented Laura Sawicki at Launderette in Austin).
