Magazines Among James Beard Foundation Award Winners for Food Journalism Excellence

James Beard Foundation AwardsJames Beard Foundation Awards aren’t just bestowed upon restaurants and chefs. Annually, top food journalists and publications are also so honored. Here’s a peek at the 2013 winners.

Widely known for celebrating culinary excellence in some of the nation’s finest restaurants, the James Beard Foundation also recognizes outstanding food-related journalism across book, broadcast, print and digital categories.

Considered “The Oscars of Food,” the James Beard Foundation has annually, since 1990, bestowed its bronze medallion honors to chefs, restaurants, cookbook authors, journalists, restaurant designers and other food professionals.

The award is named after James Beard, an American chef and writer, and honors both of his pursuits. Not only is he credited with helping establish the country’s gourmet food identity, but also was a prolific writer with more than 20 books to his name.
