Our very own Besha Rodell took third-place honors in both the Best Newspaper Restaurant Criticism and Best Newspaper Food Feature categories at this weekend’s Association of Food Journalists (AFJ) awards competition and conference held in Minneapolis.

In the food feature category, Besha went up against fellow alt-weekly writer Zach Dundas of Willamette Week and Rebekah Denn of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer in the 150,000-below circulation division (for her 2006 Food Issue). In the restaurant criticism category she competed against Gail Shepherd of New Times Broward/Palm Beach and Tom Sietsema of the Washington Post — in a competition that for the first time ever had no circulation limit. In other words, she went up against everyone.

Rodell also received a nod earlier this year for her work from the prestigious James Beard Foundation.

So if she struts around this week claiming to be one of the three best food critics in the nation, don’t argue. She can back it up.
