Awards Season

OB-WN551_50best_G_20130301055103.jpgWhy is Australia so fascinated with food awards? Quote: "Partly, it's the result of a nation's food culture coming of age" and "for the most part, the global food media have left Australia to its own devices, and local media organizations are now jostling for position." (See how World's 50 Best Asia did not include Australia.) Also: "There is no better way to lend credibility to a newspaper or magazine that comments on food than to get the people you write about to accept an award you give them." [Scene Asia/WSJ]
