Just announced on Twitter: Duff Goldman was nominated in the Broadcast Media category for TV Food Personality/Host. His competition in the James Beard Foundation award: Alton Brown (who was just here on Saturday) and Bobby Flay (who’s been in Baltimore for a couple of Throwdowns).
Those results will be announced on May 6.
Duff, pictured, whose Food Network show Ace of Cakes just ended its run, still oversees Charm City Cakes in Baltimore and is planning a Los Angeles outpost of the bakery.
But the James Beard judges didn’t give anything to restaurant Charleston, which received three earlier semifinalist nods. No Cindy Wolf for Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic, no Outstanding Service for Charleston, and no Outstanding Wine Service for Charleston and Tony Foreman.
Maybe next year.
