Sky Full of Bacon

It’s an honor to be nominated!

The Chicago Reader and Sky Full of Bacon earned a nomination at the James Beard Awards today, the biggest awards in the food world. The Whole Hog Project, consisting of Mike Sula’s extensive series of articles and blog posts on mulefoot pigs, plus There Will Be Pork, my two-part video podcast on the same subject, was nominated in the Food Journalism/Multimedia category.

Here are the two parts, if you’ve never seen them:

Sky Full of Bacon 05: There Will Be Pork (pt. 1) from Michael Gebert on Vimeo

Sky Full of Bacon 06: There Will Be Pork (pt. 2) from Michael Gebert on Vimeo.

Incidentally, three of the restaurants featured in those podcasts are up for restaurant awards: Paul Kahan of Blackbird for best chef, Koren Grieveson of Avec (she’s not in it, but one of her chefs, Justin Large, is) for best chef Great Lakes, and The Publican for design/graphics. Other Chicago nominees include Monica Eng (twice), Carol Mighton Haddix and Phil Vettel of the Trib, Steve Hungry Hound Dolinsky, and the Alinea cookbook.

Here’s the Reader’s announcement, which mentions Sky Full of Bacon.
