In Our June/July 2016 Issue
Food For Thought
Working to fulfill our mission of celebrating the food and beverage industry of our community is a true joy for us at Edible Louisville & the Bluegrass. In each issue, we appreciate and value the opportunity to create a platform for discussion about the people who are driving our food, beverage and business culture. It’s nice when people outside our region recognize it too.
Each year Edible Communities Inc. invites entries for the EDDY Awards. The awards are a celebration of excellence in publishing — from food writing to coverage of social issues to exceptional photography and more.
We are excited to share that three of our pieces have made it to the finals where YOU (and all the people you can recruit!) can vote for the Readers’ Choice winners on the Edible Feast website. Congratulations to our nominees! All from our December 2015/January 2016 issue — our 35th — they are:
- Best Home Cook Feature — “Out of the Frying Pan.”
Written by Lois Mateus

- Best Feature Story/ Photography — “Against the Grain.”
Written by Steve Coomes
Photographs by Andy Hyslop
- Best Cover Imagery — “Holiday Cranberry & Jalapeño Cornbread”

Daily voting for each category is available through 11:59pm Wednesday, June 8. I encourage you to set a daily reminder on your phone. Voting pages are optimized for mobile use, making phone and tablet voting easier for those on the go. You can vote at Edible-Feast.com.
Edible Communities includes about 80 locally owned and edited Edibles across the United States and Canada. Submissions were reviewed by over 50 judges, including chefs, authors, editors, farmers, activists and bloggers who had the task of narrowing down finalists from 600 entries from 51 publications in 21 categories. No small task.
We are grateful for the many talented writers and photographers we have the privilege of working with at Edible Louisville & the Bluegrass. They enrich the magazine with their words and imagery and we celebrate them all with our appreciation and respect.
