Congratulations to Hank Shaw, whose "Hunter, Angler, Gardener Cook" blog has led to a book deal. It has been a breakout year for Shaw, who calls the Sacramento area home. He was recently nominated for a James Beard Foundation award for best food blog.
He didn't win, but he got plenty of attention. Now he has a contract to write a book. Here's what he told the readers of his blog:
I signed with Rodale Press, my editor is Pam Krauss and the book is tentatively slated for release in the first part of 2011. The working title is "Honest Food: Finding the Forgotten Feast."
We wish him plenty of success in the new venture. Judging by the work on his blog and the audience he has attracted in a relatively short period, it's going to be a well-received book.
