James Beard Award Winners and Nominees 3-208
As requested, I have filled-out with relevant information rows 3 to 208, columns C and D of the attached spreadsheet. To achieve efficient and optimal results we have utilized the James Beard Foundation website and used the filters "Restaurant and Chef" under category, and "Winners" and "Nominees" under rank. Using the search tool within the website and incorporating the aforementioned filters, we have individually searched for all the names listed in rows 3 to 208 and lifted the following relevant information: (1) whether the names listed in column A are winners or nominees for the year indicated in column B, and (2) the region for which the names listed in column A were nominated or the region where they won.
I have included here some of our findings in this research. Complete details of our findings are provided in the attached spreadsheet.
• Aaron Franklin won Best Chef for the Southwest region in the year 2015.
