James Beard Awards Chef Details Rows 857-896
There are nine male chefs and six female chefs within the rows of 857-896 on the James Beard Award winners and nominees spreadsheet. The majority of the chefs in this section are Caucasian with only one Asian male. The information has been updated on the attached spreadsheet for each chef.
To complete the spreadsheet, I searched for birthdays through restaurant or chef profiles, news articles, or chef websites. For the chefs I was unable to locate a birth date or year for, I put an 'N/A' in the box. Some chefs did not have dates or years listed but listed the chef's age at the time the article was written. I used the date of the article and age listed for the chef to estimate the chef's year of birth. Some of the articles are older but provided the information needed to triangulate an estimated birth year. If a race was not listed, I used attached photographs to assume race. Pictures and appropriate pronouns helped to determine gender.
The spreadsheet has been update with the chef information for rows 857-896 columns E-H. The age, gender, race and sources have been filled in for each entry on the spreadsheet.
