Every year the John Folse Culinary Institute invites a distinguished visiting chef to be honored next to the Lafcadio Hearn award winner. This year John Besh was the Lafcadio Hern award winner and the Chef de Cuisine of restaurant August, Michael Gulotta, was the distinguished visiting chef. Congratulations to both. It is very obvious to me that both Chefs deeply care about the cuisine they prepare.
