Our office foodies were so busy drooling over the many fine San Francisco restaurants and chefs nominated for James Beard awards that we forgot to mention something closer to home. Former staff writer Eliza Strickland has been nominated for a James Beard journalism award for her article Burnt Chefs! The piece chronicled the boiling anger felt by many students and graduates of the California Culinary Academy down on Polk Street. Graduates complained to Strickland of admissions reps with grandiose promises and shady tactics, and, following the article's publication, they filed a class action lawsuit against the school.

The Beard winners will be announced in June. Here's a full list of the nominees. -- Snitch Staff Report
