The James Beard Awards are the Oscars of the food world, and New Mexico’s top chefs have put the state on the national culinary map.
Jaye Wilkinson: Farm & Table, Albuquerque Looks like owner Cherie Montoya Austin made a good call on her second chef. Chef Jaye, a Santa Fe native, is a graduate of the Seattle Culinary Academy, the first in the country to have incorporated sustainability as a formal part of its curriculum. Wilkinson is making great seasonal meals nightly from the restaurant’s 1½-acre farm and other local sources. 8917 Fourth St. NW; (505) 503-7124; farmandtablenm.com
Ka‘aimaina Ravey: Red Sage, Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino, Pojoaque Chef Ka‘ai, a native of Hawaii, garnered raves for his simple but inventive cooking as the opening chef at Albuquerque’s Farm & Table. To further develop his career, he wanted to work in a larger venue, and seems to be settling in well at this Pojoaque Pueblo–owned resort with a creative American menu that includes touches from the Southwest and his island home. His slow-roasted pork belly with miso caramel sauce was among the top dishes I ate in 2012. 20 Buffalo Thunder Trail, Pojoaque; (505) 819-2056;buffalothunderresort.com

Local iQ's Golden Fork Awards - Best Salad
|Thursday, 12 July 2012|
We asked them to cast votes for their favorite dishes in town — from pizza and pasta to pancakes and Pad Thai. The answers we received were compiled, tabulated and resulted in a list of local dishes that, while obviously subjective in every manner, ended up working like an informal insider’s food guide to Albuquerque. Should you hold on to this issue and refer back to it when you’re looking for the best pho in town? Why not? Or, just dial up this story at local-iq.com Keyword: Golden Fork. Happy reading, happy eating.
Tough category as there are many restaurants in town serving delicious salads, but edging out everyone is Farm & Table (though no specific salad was named in any of the answers). May we suggest the Orange Tarragon Roasted Beet?
