The James Beard Awards are considered to be the “Oscars of the Food World” but now there is a People’s Choice Award to give foodies across the country a say in who is the crème a la crème of the food world.
Voting began today for Tablespoon.com’s first ever Munchies Awards: People’s Choice Food Awards. Voting ends on April 30th. The 2012 nominees, both household and “under-the-radar” names, were selected by a panel of 13 culinary experts lead by Andrew Zimmern. The panel consisted of culinary writers, chefs, one supermodel chef, and the mysterious twitter personality, Ruth Bourdain.
