If you’re a super foodie, Food Network-addict like I am, you know that the James Beard Foundation Awards (the Oscars of the culinary world) were announced last week. And, if you didn’t know, now you do!
Drawing inspiration from the James Beard Foundation and combining my love of food and comics, I’ve taken some of the award categories and scoured the GoComics universe, looking for this year’s best food funnies!
After much searching and careful deliberation, I am pleased to announce the winners for, what I think are, the best culinary cartoons in each of the following categories:
In the “Baking and Dessert” category, Paige of Foxtrot definitely takes the cake for her ability to tackle more ice cream than anyone thought to be humanly possible.
This po’ boy from Louisiana takes home the win in the “American Cooking” category for his oh-so-punny ode to Queen.
Horace the horse’s culinary knowledge earns him the title of top chef in the “Cooking from a Professional Point of View” category.
A hilariously tragic corncob funeral beats out the competition in the “Vegetable Focused and Vegetarian” category for making us cry tears … of laughter.
Half Full by Maria Scrivan stacks up well to its competitors in the “Focus on Health” category for its ability to teach us the secret to success with diet books.
Adam from Adam@Home changed the world forever with his innovative coffee alarm clock, and his genius is rewarded with a first-place win in the “Beverage” category.
Finally, honorable mention goes to the moment that shocked us all – otherwise known as last summer’s epic pancake showdown.
I’d like to personally thank all of our GoComics cartoonists for making this an extremely hard decision! Super foodie or not, everyone loves a good culinary comic, and we have plenty more where these came from! Click HERE to visit our “Food Funnies” Pinterest board to keep the laughs rolling!
