Congrats to all!

Last night, cooks, photographers, videographers, producers, and bloggers (Grub included!) gathered in New York City for the James Beard media awards, hosted by Ted Allen. Marcus Samuelsson accepted his award in what looked to be a blue leopard-print jacket, and Andrew Zimmern gave a heartfelt speech about the importance of family. Other winners include Maricel E. Presilla for Cookbook of the Year, and Tejal Rao of the Village Voice received the Craig Claiborne Distinguished Restaurant Review award. Check out the full list, straight ahead.
