After being recognized six times as a semi-finalist for the James Beard Best Chef Southwest Award, we are so thrilled to announce that our own Chef Jonathan Perno has advanced this year as a finalist. The prestigious James Beard Awards Foundation's mission is to celebrate, nurture and honor chefs and other leaders making America's food culture more delicious, diverse and sustainable for everyone.
The James Beard Foundation grants the premiere awards for the culinary industry and has recognized Chef Jonathan amongst just five other talented chefs in our region and only 67 chefs nationally. Representing New Mexico within this distinguished and respected organization, Chef Jonathan's talents and dedication are now celebrated on a national level. We are so proud of his incredible accomplishment. With over a decade spent at Los Poblanos, Chef Jonathan's creativity and passion has truly crafted the Los Poblanos model of Rio Grande Valley Cuisine, and is a stunning example of what hard work and determination can build.
While we look forward to seeing you at Campo as soon as it reopens, we invite you to experience Chef Jonathan's artistry by ordering Campo Curbside, available Wednesday through Sunday.
