Last week, University of Vermont food sciences professor Catherine Donnelly took home a James Beard Foundation award for her 2016 book The Oxford Companion to Cheese. Working with an international team of writers and editors, Donnelly edited and compiled the 888-page encyclopedia over several years, covering topics ranging from cheese history to cultures and types to production techniques to noteworthy farms.

Editor's note: Seven Days food writer Hannah Palmer Egan was nominated for a 2017 James Beard journalism award in the Local Impact category. Another Vermonter, Shaun Dreisbach of EatingWell magazine, was nominated in the Food and Health category.

The original print version of this article was headlined "Crumbs: Leftover Food News"
