If you've picked up a copy of the November 2005 issue of Food & Wine, you'll find that yours truly is listed among the culinary notables in the magazine's annual Tastemaker Awards. The awards recognize "Top young talents who've changed the world of food and wine by age 35." Wow, that's quite an honor!
Here's what Food & Wine has to say about this here "Blogger Extraordinaire":
The Web isn't lacking for food blogs, but none has the scope of Josh Friedland's thefoodsection.com. Friedland started the pioneering site in 2003 to track "all the news that's fit to eat," linking to magazines, newspapers, Web sites and other blogs in 60 categories like gadgets, trends and news. Friedland works full-time as director of communications at a New York City hospital yet finds 20 hours a week to update the blog, where he also posts musings on recipes he's tried and chronicles his latest culinary adventures. The site's Moveable Feast links to food news in cities around the globe like Saigon and Florence.
Speaking of Moveable Feast, let's give credit where credit is due. My thanks to Emily Kaiser (Washington, DC), Samin Nosrat (Florence), Graham Holliday (Saigon), and Kristin Franklin (Los Angeles) for their generous contributions to this ongoing feature.
And, of course, thank you all for reading this site! I can't believe I've been at this for more than two years at this point.
