I've just got word that Leite's Culinaria has won the James Beard Foundation Award for best website focusing on food, beverage or nutrition. it's only the second time the awards been offered and it's the second time Leite's won. Of course, I'm not at all surprised by the news because Leite's really is the best of the best. A dyed-in-the-wool class act with beautiful graphics, terrific writing and a seriousness of purpose conveyed in a cheerful tone that refreshes even as it informs.
Way to go David Leite, Linda Avery and a special shout out to Food History editor Gary Allen!
