I just found out that my mince pie article is a finalist for a James Beard Award for best fish-and-chips wrapper of the year. It seems I am on a short list of three. I like those odds. It’s an honor just to be nominated, of course (and damn, would I love to win).


  1. Congrats!

    The problem is, you’re up against “Liver and Let Liver”. With such a pun-like object in the title, you don’t stand a chance, since we all know the judges won’t read past the titles because they get hungry fast.

    If you do win a Beardy, try for a Mustachey and a Wiggy in future years, and then you’ll have a complete disguise you can wear when you stab anyone who titles things “Liver and Let Liver”.

    • Maybe a Merkiny too?
