Mustache Bill's Fried Flounder Sandwich

Mustache Bill's Fried Flounder Sandwich

First of all we at Viking Village are thrilled with this month's featured chef, Bill Smith of Mustache Bills located in our own community of Barnegat Light, New Jersey.
Bill had the honor to win The 2009 James Beard Foundation Award, "The American Classic." Have you ever heard of that golden idol called the "The Oscar" or "The Super Bowl?" Mr. Smith's win is comparable. The JFB Award covers all aspects of the industry—from chefs and restaurateurs to cookbook authors and food journalists to restaurant designers and architects and more—the Beard Awards are the highest honor for food and beverage professionals working in North America. The awards are presented each spring at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center. Nominees and winners are fêted at a weekend of events in New York City that has become the social and gastronomic highlight of the year.

'Little Beach Boy' goes to the Big Apple: Bill sat mesmerized at the Lincoln Center sipping on a glass of champagne taking in the activity of this event when suddenly someone touched him on the shoulder. "Sir, you must come with me behind the stage to prepare for your speech." In shock Bill replies, "Speech, what speech? There are over 2000 people here!" The gentleman smiled and lead him to the waiting area where he met Martha Stewart and Emeril Lagasse. After being comforted with words of wisdom from Emeril, Bill marched out on stage and hit it home. For a guy hiding out in the kitchen and never coming out of those double doors that separate he from the public, I think he deserves another award.
