The list of chef, restaurant, cookbook, journalist and broadcast nominees is a great way to get introduced to new people, restaurants and writing in the food world.

Which brings me to one of the reasons I pay attention to the James Beard Award nominees. I get introduced to new quality, people, restaurants, and writing in the food world. I hadn’t heard about Dark Rye, but now the online magazine by Whole Foods is on my radar.
Other things I’m happy to have discovered while perusing the nominees include Liquor.com’s YouTube channel “How to Cocktail
” and the beautifully photographed Canalle et Vanille
It’s also exciting to see Hank Shaw, who I interviewed a while back for Meet Hank Shaw, a finder of forgotten feasts
nominated for Individual Food Blog for his Hunter Angler Gardener Cook blog. Also nominated is Michael Natkin’s “Herbivoracious
,” a cookbook I reviewed last year after Natkin invited me to an event for his vegetarian cookbook. Both Shaw and Natkin are very deserving of nominations.
Have you discovered anything or anyone new from following the James Beard Award nominees and winners?
