Good Food Awards

My good friend Jennifer Colliau from the Slanted Door called me up a few weeks back and told me she had been made the chair of the newly added spirits board for a group called the Good Food Awards, an organization dedicated to recognizing domestic producers who create beer, cheese, coffee, pickles, chocolate, and charcuterie in humane, responsible, and environmentally friendly ways.  She asked if I would be on the board with her (and a slew of other Bay Area spirit people) to help get people interested in participating.  I took one look at their website and loved what I saw - I was in.

Starting now, any distillery who meets the guidelines can enter -

• Utilize ingredients that are traceable and that they can speak to where they come from.
• Do not contain any genetically modified ingredients.
• Contain no artificial additives.

Anyone interested in entering can contact me for more info.  Entries will be taken until September 1st via the website.

Can't wait to see how this goes!

Are you in it only for booze or for the other things too. I can send you the name of a great candy maker in the Bay Area who seems to fit the bill.

Just the booze. But you should tell the candymaker to enter via the website.
