More


The Atlantic is pleased to announced that Corby Kummer has won the 2007 James Beard Award for Food-Related Columns. This is the fourth time that Kummer has been honored with this highly prestigious food-writing award.

Kummer's work in The Atlantic has established him as one of the most widely read, authoritative, and creative food writers in the United States. The San Francisco Examiner pronounced him "a dean among food writers in America." Julia Child once said, "I think he's a very good food writer. He really does his homework. As a reporter and a writer he takes his work very seriously."As Giorgio DeLuca, co-founder of New York's epicurean grocery Dean & DeLuca, says: ''I can tell when Corby's pieces hit; the phone doesn't stop ringing."

The following pieces were singled out by the James Beard Foundation for 2007.

"The Rise of the Sardine" (March 2007)
Will Cannery Row’s signature fish transcend its humble reputation to become a chef’s staple? It should.

"The Art of Aging Well" (November 2007)
A cult destination in London has revolutionized cheesemaking, winning converts as far afield as Vermont.

"The Magic Brewing Machine" (December 2007)
Cool new coffeemakers bring out the deeper pleasures of a light roast.
