- The Chicago Tribune's Monica Eng, nominated for a James Beard award for "Morality Bites," an account of an "unpleasant pilgrimage to bear witness to the death of every kind of animal I ate," has been reassigned from the food desk to investigative reporting. In one of her last culinary dispatches, she explores the rise in home coffee brewing over visiting the local cafe.
