Hot on the heels of the trio of nods we garnered at this year’s Top of The Rockies in Colorado, I’m fizzingly-excited to share the news that this week, we nabbed four more shiny things to litter the mantle. This time around, a quartet from the obviously savvy folks at the Utah Society of Professional Journalists; serious journalism types with furrowed brows and notepads and things. The glittering quartet includes a first place trophy in business / consumer writing, another pole position for humor, then a one-two hey now for review / criticism.
I’m especially proud of the meandering trip down memory lane that is this piece – a pudding-tinted look back at the food that made me who I am; spoiler alert, I ain’t a fancy man.
Anyway, if you want to read the full list of stories, here they all are, and as ever thanks for reading along. Cheers!

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC. I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have written in myopic detail about the Salt Lake City dining scene for the better part of seventeen years.
I’ve worked extensively with multiple local publications from Visit Salt Lake to Salt Lake Magazine, not least helped to consult on national TV. Pause those credits, yep, that’s me! I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’m largely fueled by a critical obsession with rice, alliteration and the use of big words I don’t understand. What they’re saying about me: “Not inaccurate”, “I thought he was older”, “I don’t share his feelings”.
