Chef Jimmy Gibson Selected for 2013 Edition of Best Chefs America
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Cincinnati, OH (January 14, 2013) – Chef Jimmy Gibson was recently selected to be included in the inaugural edition of Best Chefs America. Best Chefs America was established to act as a reference guide to chefs, and will be published annually to showcase the best chefs in the United States as selected by their peers. For the 2013 edition, its publishers made over 50,000 phone calls and interviewed over 5,000 chefs to compile the list of best chefs. The book will be available online and in bookstores nationwide in March 2013. In addition to listing best chefs, it will also highlight emerging trends, interesting ingredients, and other culinary news across the United States.
“The best thing about this type of recognition for me was the fact that it was the result of peer-nomination,” said Chef Jimmy Gibson. “It’s extremely rewarding to be selected as ‘Best Chef’ by other chefs and those who are doing what I’m doing for a living.”
Jimmy Gibson is currently the Executive Chef at his namesake restaurant, Jimmy G’s, which is located in downtown Cincinnati on Elm Street between 4th and 5th. Jimmy G’s features wood grilled prime USDA steaks, fresh seafood and American and international dishes in a mid-century modern themed setting. It celebrated its one-year anniversary in December 2012.
