Taste Canada announces shortlist for 2012 food writing awards

After wading through 73 submissions, Taste Canada has come up with a shortlist for its 2012 Food Writing Awards.

Taste Canada (formerly the Canadian Culinary Book Awards) is upping the swank factor for the awards’ 15th anniversary by moving the ceremony from the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto to the city’s Arcadian Court for a gala reception on Nov. 5.
