Congratulations to the Taste section, which won two out of three awards in its category by the Association of Food Journalists, both in the “special projects” category.

The three-part series “Letters from France” by freelance writer Steve Hoffman, with photos by Mary Jo Hoffman, won second place.

The Taste team won third place for its Taste 50 special section 2012, a presentation of 50 people who had made a difference in our local food world.
