Lucky Peach gets five James Beard Awards

James Beard Awards


The food quarterly Lucky Peach got five James Beard Awards Friday night.



The magazine, which is no longer published by McSweeney's, won for John Birdsall's essay "America, Your Food Is So Gay," Lisa Hanawalt’s "On the Trail with Wylie," John Jeremiah Sullivan's "I Placed a Jar in Tennessee," Fuchsia Dunlop's "Dick Soup" and Francis Lam's "A Day on Long Island with Alex Lee."



Washington Post reporter Eli Saslow also got an award for his series about food stamps. The work won a Pulitzer Prize for explanatory reporting last month. (While speaking to his newsroom about the award, Saslow said sources on stories like these are "the ones who take the huge risk.")



Some of the other media awards:

Here's the full list of winners.

Correction: This post originally said the awards were won Monday night. The James Beard Foundation presented its chef awards Monday night, and "Book, Broadcast, and Journalism Awards" on Friday.
