Gabriel Rucker of Le Pigeon and Little Bird and Andy Ricker of Pok Pok and Ping's won James Beard Foundation awards.

Rucker was named Rising Star of the Year, and Ricker won Best Chef Northwest.

"The city of Portland has allowed us to do what we do, and I don't think Pok Pok could have happened anywhere else," Ricker said in his acceptance speech.
