Skuna Bay Salmon selected Chef Justin Sutherland, Owner and Managing Partner of Madison Restaurant Group, to showcase his own rendition of Skuna Bay Salmon at the 2019 James Beard Foundation Post-Awards Gala Reception. Chef Justin’s most recent accolades include competing and winning The Food Network’s Iron Chef America, as well as a contestant on Bravo’s Top Chef Season 16.
