Awards season is here, and it has been a very good year indeed for this blog. My sincerest thanks to all the judges around the world for taking the time to consider my work.
The Los Angeles Press Club just announced the winners of the Southern California Journalism Awards, and I'm thrilled to have won Best Food Criticism for my reviews in the Orange County Register for the second year in a row. Here are two of the reviews that got me into the competition this year.
I'm feeling grateful and blessed to receive the Southern California Journalism Award for restaurant criticism at the Los Angeles Press Club's annual gala. It is particularly gratifying to see this comment from the judges: “The winning critique blends a keen palate with laugh-out-loud humor in this spot-on reminder that a restaurant is much more than the food on the plate.”
