We are very proud to announce that our journal Gastronomica is the co-winner of the James Beard Foundation’s “Publication of the Year.” In the announcement, Gastronomica was cited for its editorial excellence over the last eleven years and for the ways in which the journal has generally deepened our understanding of food.

As one Facebook commenter said so very well: “Darra Goldstein’s vision, dedication and insight in creating Gastronomica expanded awareness of the cultural significance of food and ensured the academic legitimacy of food studies. Bravo!”

We couldn’t have said it any better ourselves.


Darra Goldstein, Gastronomica's illustrious founder and Francis Christopher Oakley Third Century Professor of Russian at Williams College, receiving the well-deserved honor.
