Well, Cliff and I glared menacingly at each other over the table all night, but in the end the medal was hung around his neck. His masterful history of the mince pie took the James Beard Foundation's award for best newspaper feature at last night's media awards in New York. He was nice enough to let me touch it.

The larger Chicago crew certainly did better this year than last. Picking up another award for the home team was the Tribune's Kevin Pang, who won best multimedia food feature for The Cheeseburger Show.

Congratulations to the other Chicago media noms—Steve Dolinsky, Monica Eng, Rick Bayless, and Terra Brockmann. Check out the full list of media winners, and look for another report here after the chef's awards tonight.
