Beard Countdown 

Side Dishes: Award finalists include Vermonters

But a few local writers made the cut: Barry Estabrook of Vergennes — formerly of Gourmet magazine — Knopf senior editor and VP Judith Jones, who lives part time in Greensboro; Rowan Jacobsen of Calais; and Jessie Price and the editors of EatingWell.

A final coup for Vermont: Al’s French Frys is one of five establishments to receive “America’s Classics” awards for “timeless appeal” and community character.
