Chez Pim up for the Golden Clog!

Glodenclog Eater reports this morning...

Michael Ruhlman and Tony Bourdain have concocted The Golden Clog Awards (Ruhlman has previously announced as much on his blog), a quirky little awards event born out of "too many beers and late night yakitori," as Bourdain explained to Eater yesterday.

The awards ceremony, or "awards ceremony," will take place this Friday at 2:00 PM in Miami Beach, as part of the 2008 South Beach Wine & Food Festival, which does lend a certain, frightening air of credibility to the proceedings. Later today we'll bring you a chat with Bourdain about the whole shebang, but at this time, may we present the official list of nominees in the first annual Golden Clog Awards (official statuette above).

And guess what...

For the writer or blogger who actually GETS it

Nominees: Bill Buford for Heat; Pim for Chez Pim; Mike Nagrant for Hungrymag.com

I am a shoo-in for this. Totally. Think about it. It will only serve to legitimize their illegitimacy to give it to the person the least deserving, hence the most deserving. My first class plane ticket to Miami should be arriving any minute now....

Actually, I must say my favorite of all the award categories is this:

For most fame based on least actual culinary achievement

I truly and wholeheartedly wish to win it some day.....
