Here Are the Winners of the 2014 James Beard Foundation Media Awards

By
Congrats everyone!

Though the James Beard Foundation won't hand out its chef and restaurant awards until Monday, last night marked the annual Book, Broadcast, and Journalism awards (think of them like the technical Oscars, but with more gout). The awards, of course, honor writers, editors, TV hosts and more. Winners included Francis Lam, Alan Richman, Andy Ricker, Fuchsia Dunlop, as well as some lesser known up-and-comers like Martha Stewart, Anthony Bourdain, and Heston Blumenthal. Check out the full list, straight ahead.
