“Kestrel, survival isn’t wrong. You can sell your honor in small ways, so long as you guard yourself. You can pour a glass of wine like it’s meant to be poured, and watch a man drink, and plot your revenge. You probably plot even in your sleep.”
Team Roads & Kingdoms hit the James Beard awards last night. The final roundup: Matt Goulding, somewhat crowded out of the picture here, nonetheless won an award for the epic southern food crawl he wrote for Mens Health. Our two nominated stories lost out to worthy competition, but we’re still proud as hell of those stories and the writers who produced them: Oliver Bullough’s Adjika: Sauce of Glory, Pride of Abkhazia and Matt Goulding’s Palermo: Soul of a City.
