Attention American craft food producers!
Entry is now open to the second annual Good Food Awards, a national contest honoring “craft food producers who excel in superior taste and sustainability.”
If you are an artisan producer of beer, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, coffee, pickles and preserves, or spirits, then you have until September 1 to enter. Winners must meet certain criteria for sustainability and will be evaluated in a blind tasting. They will be selected by region, as well.
Alice Waters, Ruth Reichl, Amanda Hesser, and over 80 other food movement leaders will judge the blind tasting.
Winners will be announced on January 13, 2012 in San Francisco and will be showcased the following day at the Good Food Awards Marketplace at the CUESA Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.
Last year, winners were featured at select Whole Foods Market and Williams-Sonoma stores.
