2014 Munchies Awards Winners

2014 Munchies Awards Winners

And the winners are…

Hosted by yours truly and an expert panel of 40 in-the-know culinary experts, the 2014 Munchies: People’s Choice Food Awards recognize the best-of-the-best in the food biz, from terrific tastemakers to top food destinations. It’s been exciting to ignite a passionate food debate and encourage people to support their favorite restaurants, media, and chefs by voting. These awards are a celebration of the best food experiences across America, and we all congratulate each of the winners.

The Munchies winners will receive their awards in the coming weeks, but they’re not the only winners: a donation was made to Feeding America on behalf of the panelists and voters who participated in selecting the Terrific Tastemakers, Best Bites and Delicious Destinations that are being honored.
