Two Beard nominations, no award for local food blogger

Hank Shaw, an Orangevale food writer whose blog "Hunter Angler Gardener Cook," has twice been nominated for a James Beard Foundation award, lost once again.

Shaw attended the awards dinner at Espace in New York City Sunday night, but in the end, it was Ed Levine, who stirs up food enthusiasm on "Serious Eats," who took home the award for best blog.

"Oh well," Shaw texted me late Sunday.

Last year, Shaw lost to Sunset Magazine's "One-Block Diet."

Don't hit "send" on those condolence notes just yet though.

Shaw scored big late last month, having won an International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) award for best blog.

Shaw also has a book deal with Rodale. "Honest Food: Finding the Forgotten Feast" is due out in 2011.
