My darling wife, Kate Zimmerman, has won Best Food Feature in a Magazine from the U.S.-based Association of Food Journalists in its 2006 competition. The award was open to magazines of every size across North America. Results of the competition were announced on September 16th at the AFJ Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Kate won for a feature she wrote for Wine Access magazine, called Reign of Terroir, about the effects of terroir on artisanal cheese. Kate's in good company. Last year’s winner in the same category was chef, author and TV host Anthony Bourdain, for a piece that appeared in Food Arts.
Kate's been writing great stuff for many publications for many years, but this is her first award, and it's well deserved. Read the article on Kate’s blog.
