Tyson Cole on Winning a Beard

tyson-cole-tie-beard-awards-150.jpgUchi/ko's Tyson Cole on what it feels like to win a James Beard Award: "I was pacing the gigantic Avery Fisher Hall; a kinetic bundle of nerves. I saw it on screen that I'd won and it was almost a relief...They wouldn't serve any alcohol until the end of the show and the beginning of the tasting; I've never needed a shot of liquor so bad in my life!) My lips were numb as i gave the acceptance speech, and walked from there off stage into a flurry of flash bulbs and anxious reporters & industry peeps...Completely surreal." [Tyson at Uchi]
