Good Food Awards

Kudos to Local Food Crafters


Chicken Liver Mousse by Picnic in Albany


If you’re on the hunt for outstanding new foods and flavors and you value responsible business practices, you’ll want to sample the products honored with a 2019 Good Food Award. This annual national contest rewards producers in 16 categories, ranging from confections to spirits, and selects the most delicious items that also serve up “social and environmental excellence.” Hats off to this year’s East Bay recipients and their award-winning food or beverage!
