Hank Shaw Wins James Beard Award

by Amber on May 3, 2013

Wow! My friend Hank Shaw just won the James Beard award for his food blog, Hunter Angler Gardener Cook.

This award is the Mac Daddy of food writing awards. If you win, it means you can put two words together and make people feel things.

I have been a Hank Shaw fan from the very beginning. He loves cats. His Master’s degree is in African History (something he and I share in common—of all random commonalities). He’s the ultimate locavore. He’s smart as a whip. He’s fun. He’s funny. He’s genuine. He’s also one of the world’s greatest cooks—and no one cooks vegetables as well as this hunter.

I’m so excited for Hank!!! Let’s give him three cheers, a triple broccoli cartwheel, and a double high five!!!!

Thanks a million, Amber! But what, exactly, is a “triple broccoli cartwheel?” 😉

Haha! Hank, that’s the most joyful of cartwheels, conducted at the moment of celebration. In your case, it should have been a wild mushroom cartwheel, perhaps. They look almost the same to the untrained eye. 😉 Super excited for you!!!
