Last month, team Epicuring was hard at work helping out with the 3rd annual Good Food Awards judging in San Francisco. Today, we’re excited to share the news that the finalists have been announced! We were proud to see that many California entries made the cut, including products from some of the merchants listed in our Epicuring guide. Find the complete list of 2013 finalists here.
The Good Food Awards recognizes products from all over the country that are not only delicious, but also crafted in a way that is respectful of the environment and local communities. In fact, director Sarah Weiner explained that many prospective entrants expressed interest in sourcing organic ingredients after learning about the awards.
Our own Susie Wyshak headed up the confections judging, a new category this year. It proved to be a popular category, bringing in more entries than any of the other eight categories.
Winners of the Good Food Awards seal will be announced January 18, and a marketplace featuring the winning entries will be held the following day in the Ferry Building. In the meantime, check out all of the 2013 finalists and the winners from previous years!
