Posted on

Top Chef judge Tom Colicchio was named the top chef of 2010 by the James Beard Foundation at a ceremony held in New York City tonight. The Beard awards — which, according to the AP, are the “Oscars of the food world” — recognize up to 10 years of work. Colicchio has been a finalist for the big prize seven times, and won Beard awards in the past including best chef in NYC, outstanding service, and best cookbook (for his 2001 Think Like a Chef).
