Y&H has already tooted his own horn like Miles Davis after several lines of toot. But Holly Hughes, editor of the annual Best Food Writing anthologies, e-mailed Y&H yesterday to let me know who else in the D.C. area made the cut in this year’s collection. It’s an impressive showing.

The honorees (the list could expand, given that Hughes may not know all the D.C. writers by name):

The Best Food Writing collection should hit bookstores on Nov. 10. I wonder: Is the D.C. area’s representation a reflection of better local writers, a better overall food scene, or the increased competition? Or all the above? Chime in!

from the Post, Jane Black has a food politics piece called “Go Slow, Foodies” and Joe Yonan has “Deep In the Heart of Texas, We Bread Steak.”  Todd Kliman has a memory of his recently deceased father, titled “Ted Kliman: 1929-2009,” which I think was only on the Washingtonian’s website. A pretty impressive showing again this year from the DC’ers!
