Kansas City Star Rocks

This just in from Jill Silva, food editor of the Kansas City Star, who’s attending the Association of Food Journalists conference in Charleston: we won! Silva’s article on food deserts (“Far Away From Food”) topped the Best Newspaper Special Food Project category; the piece has also been included in Best Food Writing 2011.

“35 People, Places and Things That Make Us Drool,” a collaboration between Silva and Cindy Hoedel, was the third place Best Newspaper Special Food Project entry. And me? My Cocktails & Spirits column earned second in the Best Newspaper Food Column division. Which columns did I offer up for judgment? One on how single malt Scotch whisky has changed in recent years (Taming the Whisky Jungle) and another on elderflower liqueurs (Elderflowers Create the ‘New’ Go-To Cordial); both ran in early 2010.
