A big hug and congratulations to Andrew Zimmern for winning the James Beard Foundation Media Award for top TV Food Personality. Andrew's show, Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, is in its 5th season on The Travel Channel.
I was chatting on the phone with Chandrew the week before the Media Awards weekend and there was no doubt in his mind that Alton Brown or Rick Bayless (both also super dudes with super shows) would win in his category. He didn't think he had a chance.
Goes to show what you know, Lil' A. Congratulations!
