We’re proud to highlight an all-female lineup of nominees for this year’s James Beard Journalism Award for Individual Food Blog. These powerhouses embody the idea of the multi-hyphenate: they are the writers, photographers, editors, designers, illustrators, and marketers of their creations, each one inviting readers to view the world through a new, unique lens.


Molly Wizenberg

Seattle-based restaurateur, author, and podcast host Molly Wizenberg can trace her success back to Orangette, the blog she created in 2004 as a way to break into food writing, and which is as fantastic as ever. [Shown above]

Poor Man’s Feast
Elissa Altman

Elissa Altman, on the other hand, launched Poor Man’s Feast in 2008 in response to her work as a food columnist and cookbook editor, seeking the simplicity of home-cooked food and family over the chic plates she reviewed professionally.

Three Little Halves
Aleksandra Mojsilovic

Aleksandra Mojesilovic, a data scientist by day, professes to have no formal food or photography training, yet Three Little Halves is a repository of gorgeous visual odes to seasonal ingredients, mouthwatering recipes, and musings on food, family, and home.
