Awards season is in full swing and the restaurant world is no different.

In case you didn't know, the James Beard Awards are like the foodie Oscars and one local baker has been named as a semifinalist for this year's awards.

Congratulations to Elizabeth Degener -- a.k.a. "the Cape May Bread Lady" -- at Enfin Farms in Cape May, nominated for 2017 Outstanding Baker!

The tiny Sunset Blvd. farm stand consistently bakes up some of the best bread in South Jersey, which is why you'll usually see a long line of customers patiently waiting in line during the summer well before the stand even opens.

This year's James Beard Award finalists will be announced on March 15, and the Awards Gala will take place in Chicago on May 1. See the full list of 2017 semi-finalists here.
