Beard award winners: Congrats to L.A. mag!

Time to dig out the back issues of Los Angeles Magazine, because I can't actually remember reading Jesse Katz' article "Wheels of Fortune," on taco trucks, which won the MFK Fisher award for food writing at the Beard Awards last night. Maybe the magazine could give a shoutout to Katz by posting it online?
Leite's Culinaria (which has a nice story on the Cobb salad up right now, with a Brown Derby postcard) won for best food Web site, while "Diary of a Foodie," one of my favorite shows, won a TV award. L.A. chefs were pretty much shut out this time...former L.A. chef Michael Richard received Outstanding Chef award for Citronelle in Washington, D.C.
