Boulder’s Frasca, Louisville baker nominated for Beard awards

Boulder’s fine dining Frasca Food and Wine and baker Andy Clark of Louisville’s Moxie Bread Co. will have a second chance at winning a James Beard Foundation Award. Both were nominated as semi-finalists last year and again this year — and are Boulder County’s only semi-finalists for the prestigious honor that recognizes culinary professionals and establishments for excellence and achievement.
Frasca, opened in 2004, is one of 20 restaurants in the running for the prize of Outstanding Service. Clark’s nomination as a contender for last year’s Outstanding Baker prize was his first James Beard Foundation Award nomination. He’s competing again this year against 19 other bakers. The two locals are among a handful of Colorado restaurants and chefs who made it into the semifinals. Winners of the 2019 James Beard awards will be announced May 6 at a gala in Chicago.
