CRN Announces Winners of First Annual Food and Wine Awards

Food and WineCRN Digital Talk Radio has announced the winners of its first annual Food & Wine Awards.

The network, which is celebrating its 30-year anniversary and home to several food and beverage-oriented programs, asked listeners to decide 2013’s Best Chef, Restaurant, Sommelier, and Winemaker.

“Food and wine are best enjoyed with good company,” said CRN President and CEO Michael J. Horn. “Our listeners deciding the year’s best of the best in the culinary and beverage arenas was very much akin to sitting down, honoring some great people, enjoying a fun meal.”

CRN is home to the “What’s Cookin Today,” program, as well as “Blue Lifestyle” with James Beard Award winner Anthony Dias Blue, “What’s Cookin’ on Wine,” “What’s Cookin’ on Wine: Sonoma Report with Larry Van Aalst” and “What’s Cookin’ on Wine with Michael Jordan.”
