Puzo Wins Beard and Burt Greene Awards

May 02, 1996

Times staff writer Daniel P. Puzo picked up two food journalism awards last weekend.

For his 1995 Food section cover story, "What Happened to California's Seafood," Puzo won the Burt Greene Award on Saturday night at the annual International Assn. of Culinary Professionals convention in Philadelphia. It is the only prize awarded by the organization to newspaper food writers.

The next night, the same story won a James Beard Foundation Journalism Award in the Newspaper News Reporting category. The ceremony, at the Yale Club in New York, was hosted by New Yorker writer Calvin Trillin and included a dinner cooked by some of the country's best chefs, including Jonathan Waxman and Larry Forgione.

The Times had four other finalists in the James Beard Journalism Awards: Russ Parsons for Newspaper Food Reporting and for Newspaper Series, S. Irene Virbila for Newspaper Restaurant Review, Michelle Huneven for Newspaper Feature Writing With Recipes, and Lynda Barry for the M.F.K. Fisher Distinguished Writing Award.
