We've just wrapped up the Broadcast Media Awards segment of the program—just in time for Karen DeMasco's white chocolate panna cotta with morello cherries and cherry sorbet. Highlight: a humbled and flattered Andrew Zimmern, upon accepting his award for TV Food Personality, gave a shout-out to Cookbook-Hall-of-Fame inductee Claudia Roden. "Claudia, you write about eyeballs and sheep testicles, and that's where I always like to start eating!" he declared.
Here are the 2010 Broadcast Media Award winners:

After an opening video montage that included footage from our Jeopardy! appearance,
Susan Ungaro took the stage at the JBF Media & Book Awards to thank our sponsors and lead the packed room in a Stella toast. She then introduced hosts Andrew Zimmern and Kelly Choi—the latter a vision in peak-of-the-season strawberry red—who took over the podium and launched into the first cookbook awards of the night. Early winners included Real Cajun
by NOLA hero Donald Link ("I wrote this book for my kids," he said) and Ad Hoc at Home
by Thomas Keller. Always a class act, chef Keller saluted fellow nominee Marco Canaro,
and also confessed that he hadn't expected to come out ahead of Judith Jones, whose book, The Pleasures of Cooking for One
," was also up for consideration.
Here are the winners so far:

When we began this little contest
we had no idea it would result in a battle: free pour fanatics v. etching affcionados. Our final five reflect both artistic styles and we think each is beautiful in its own way. But what we think doesn't really matter; it's what you love that will determine who can look forward to an illy machine in the mail. So take a look at the photographs below and vote for your favorite. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, May 4.
