As of yesterday, the James Beard Foundation announced the winners of the Media Awards. Josh Niland’s The Whole Fish Cookbook: New Ways to Cook, Eat and Think is the winner book in both Year of the Book and Restaurant and Professional fields.
The James Beard Foundation announced the winners with an online announcement instead of the ceremony that always held in New York. While the winners in the Book, Broadcast and Journalism categories were announced, the winner name is Josh Niland’s the Whole Fish Cookbook: New Ways to Cook, Eat and Think in the ‘Book of the Year’ and ‘Restaurant and Professional’ sections. The rescheduled James Beard restaurant and chef awards are planned for September 25. As of now, the awards will still take place in Chicago, but the final format isn’t confirmed.
