Civil Eats wins 2014 James Beard Publication of the Year
In judging its Publication of the Year, the Journalism Awards Committee of the James Beard Foundation recognizes a publication that demonstrates fresh direction, worthy ambition, and a forward-looking approach to food journalism. Civil Eats, through its declared passion for “promoting critical thought about sustainable agriculture and food systems,” practices the kind of thorough and fair journalism that helps us make sense of the increasingly complex matter of getting food to our tables.
- Lucky Peach magazine took home five awards in the journalism category, including one for Humor and one for the MFK Fisher Distinguished Writing Award. I’ve let my subscription lapse, I think I may have to renew it.
- The book “Salt Sugar Fat: How the Giants Hooked Us” by Michael Moss won for Writing and Literature. The book introduced most of us to the term “bliss spot,” the sensation we get when the the sugar and salt levels a food are scientifically manipulated so that our brains crave it. (Think Cheetos.)
- The YouTube program called Thirsty For… won for the award for Video Webcast, Fixed Locationand/or Instructional. I checked out their YouTube channel. They post a new beverage recipe video each week that’s set to music. I love it! I have the instructional video for Rabarbar z Miodem (Polish Rhubarb Drink) bookmarked to make very soon.
