The James Beard Foundation is in the middle of announcing the finalists for this year's James Beard Awards, on Twitter right now. Seattle's Rebekah Denn has been nominated in the Best Newspaper Feature with Recipes category. Ms. Denn's comments on the nomination: "This is about the nicest thing that's happened to a newly unemployed food writer." (and Rebekah, I will totally buy you that drink.) Suck it, Hearst.
