Congratulations are due to Kojo Nnamdi, and his producers, as well as to Joe Yonan, Editor of the Post’s Food Section, for their wins in the James Beard Foundation Awards! Yonan won for his work editing the Food Section, and Kojo won for his radio show. The Beard Foundation exists to “celebrate, preserve, and nurture America’s culinary heritage and diversity,” and issues a set of journalism and multimedia awards, as well as their restaurant and chef awards, which will be given out tonight in New York.

Up for Beard awards tonight are Amanda Cook (CityZen, Pastry Chef), José Andrés (Minibar, Outstanding Chef), Cathal Armstrong (Restaurant Eve, Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic), Brian Voltaggio (Volt, Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic), Peter Pastan (Obelisk, Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic), and Johnny Monis (Komi, Rising Star). Good luck everyone!

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
