Nominated Again! WOW

Just a quick note to say that I was thrilled to learn today that FAT has been nominated in the Single Subject category for a James Beard Award. I am in New York at the moment, which makes it all rather exciting. I am going out tonight with friends to celebrate, more news soon.

Fame be yours, Jennifer.

The Fresno, California airport used to have a baggage tag, "FAT" for Fresno Airport Terminal. The city-powers-that-be saw it as an embarrassment on their luggage and a few years back changed the designation of our small airport to Fresno Yosemite International, thus "FYI." If I'd known about your upcoming book, perhaps I could have held off the name change another decade or so.

I raise a cyber cocktail to you in celebration, Jennifer. Congratulations, and have a great night out!
