James Beard Award nominee
Title: TV Personality, Restaurateur, and Chef
Location: New Orleans, LA

Why he's a big deal: Guas is known from his frequent appearances on The Today Show and his role as host and co-judge of the Travel Channel series American Grilled. Guas recently followed up his James Beard-nominated cookbook with a second work, Grill Nation: 200 Surefire Recipes, Tips, and Techniques to Grill like a Pro. Guas says, “Food is the best medium for relaying the most important aspects of our identity from generation to generation.”
