2007 Culinary Quills Awards

Guild of Food WritersI had the pleasure of judging the Electronic Media Award (websites and TV shows) category in the 2007 Culinary Quills Awards several months ago. The award ceremony was held today at the Boatshed here on Wellington harbour, on a beautifully still clear day that Wellington does so well – at least that was the story we told the Aucklanders.

I can now announce the worthy winners.
