The Munchies Award Winners 2013

The Munchies Award Winners 2013

The Votes Are In!

After a month of competition and thousands of votes, reveals the winners of The Munchies: People’s Choice Food Awards, hosted by yours truly and an expert panel of 26 in-the-know chowhounds. Now in its second year, these 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 food experience across America, and I congratulate each of the winners.
