And now a brief message from LA Weekly's Editor, Drex Heikes.

Amy Scattergood, able keeper of this blog, is not one to tout her own fare, but others will. Via Poynter, the Association of Food Journalists has deemed Squid Ink the second best food blog in the land. Not bad for a blog that began just over a year ago. It's a testament to Amy's taste, energy and restless mind. Well done.

The Washington Post's food blog took top honors when the awards were

announced last week.
