Wintzell’s Nabs Nappie Award for Best Gumbo
Posted on July 31, 2014 to News & Events
Among many things, we look forward to the Nappies every July, when the readers of Lagniappe choose their Mobile-area favorites. What began as a biweekly publication in July 2002, the Lagniappe has become Mobile’s independent weekly newspaper, served to more than 80,000 readers every week. The Lagniappe is locally owned and focuses on highly localized content for the citizens of Mobile and neighboring communities including Daphne, Fairhope and Gulf Shores.
Each summer the Lagniappe invites citizens to cast votes within categories that include Style, Services, Music, Arts, Media, and our personal favorite: Cuisine. With thousands of votes counted, Wintzell’s is thrilled to have won the 2014 Nappie for Best Gumbo. “This is a tough category,” writes Lagniappe cuisine editor Andy MacDonald. “Everyone thinks their gumbo is the best.”
MacDonald’s July 24th column “The Dish” gives special recognition to Wintzell’s: “Congratulations, Wintzell’s. You’ve honed it for many years.” Thanks, Andy, and kudos to the entire Lagniappe staff for keeping things funky, year after year!
And a very special thanks to our fans who voted and made this possible. We couldn’t have done it without you!
