Local Heroes Past and Present

Each year in Rhode Island and across the country, readers of the over 80 James Beard Award-winning Edible magazines vote for their favorite Local Heroes. Readers of Edible Rhody vote for: the chefs who feed us; the food artisans who tempt us; the farmers who produce flavorful foods; the food, wine or retail stores that inspire us; and the non-profits that effect change in our food community. Here's a list of all our award winners, past and present!
