Maria Hines wins James Beard award for Best Chef Northwest

Maria Hines, of Tilth Restaurant, took home the award for Best Chef in the Northwest beating out fellow NW culinary marvels Jason Wilson (Crush), Joseba Jimenez de Jimenez (The Harvest Vine), Ethan Stowell (Union), and Cathy Whims (Nostrana). Congrats to Chef Hines! Chef Hines has been a huge proponent of using local ingredients, including her "producer spotlight" dinners, which highlight a specific local producer throughout a multi-course meal. We wish her the best and will continue to follow her phenomonal culinary accomplishments.
