The Association of Food Journalists announced the winners of its annual awards over the weekend. As to be expected where food writing awards are concerned, LA Weekly‘s Jonathan Gold did quite well for himself–earning first place in the “Best Newspaper Restaurant Criticism” small circulation category. He also earned second and third place in the “Best Newspaper Food Feature” category.
The SF Chronicle also acquitted itself nicely in this year’s competition. The paper picked up both first and third place in the “Best Newspaper Restaurant Criticism” large circulation category. Staffer Sophie Brickman, who picked up the first place award, also earned a third place nod in the “Best Newspaper Food Column” category.
Congrats to all!
