Two San Francisco Chron­i­cle crit­ics and a colum­nist are among the win­ners of the 2020 As­so­ci­a­tion of Food Jour­nal­ists awards.

The awards, which were an­nounced June 25, rec­og­nize ex­cel­lence in food jour­nal­ism. Among the win­ners was Leena Trivedi­gre­nier, who has writ­ten A Mil­lion Plates, a col­umn fo­cused on im­mi­grant food in the Bay Area, for The Chron­i­cle since 2017.

Chron­i­cle staff mem­bers Soleil Ho, The Chron­i­cle’s restau­rant critic, and wine critic Es­ther Mob­ley also won awards.

Ho won third place in the cat­e­gory of best restau­rant crit­i­cism. She also was nom­i­nated for a pres­ti­gious James Beard Foun­da­tion award for her restau­rant crit­i­cism ear­lier this year.
