NPR’s The Salt has an article entitled At Food World ‘Oscars,’ Category Sneakily Redefines All-American Cuisine.  It talks about this year’s James Beard awards for “American classics,” and their growing inclusivity, covering restaurants that would once have been grouped as “ethnic,” including Mexican American, Japanese, Chinese, Native American, and Lebanese cuisines.  Which we at Dark Meat, with our focus on minorities in the food system, welcome!  It’s great to see the concept of “American” reflect more and more the wide range of what it means to be American.
