I…don’t think I’ve ever won anything before. Not on merit, I mean. I won $50 in a drawing in high school and own a mug that says World’s Best-Looking Shoemaker, but that mug technically belongs to my dad, who isn’t and wasn’t a shoemaker. Neither am I. So I’m proud and more than a little surprised to have won any category, especially in light of the beautiful competition.
Thanks to Food and Paper and the judges. I know how hard the process is. The scoring, for instance, requires some math, and I never won anything in math either.
