Less than half an hour ago, the James Beard Foundation announced the nominees for the 2011 JBF Journalism Awards, and the Weekly's own Jonathan Gold earned two nods (for Food-Related Feature and for the M.F.K. Fisher award) as did Los Angeles magazine restaurant critic Patric Kuh, who was nominated for the Craig Claiborne and M.F.K. Fisher awards. Gold is also one of the 2011 Who's Who inductees.

The awards will be presented at a ceremony on May 6th at Espace in New York.
