Tomorrow night marks the third annual Good Food Awards, and as has become customary, the organizers, judges, winners, and paying public will be celebrating with a gala featuring the 100+ cheeses, pickles, charcuterie products, coffees, preserves, pickles, and confections chosen for their taste and sustainability, as well as the 14 winning beers and 13 winning spirits. Alice Waters will host, and the lineup of chefs will include the likes of Evan and Sarah Rich (Rich Table), Bill Corbett (Absinthe Group), William Werner (Craftsman & Wolves), Annie Somerville (Greens), and Grace Nguyen (Asian Box). Throw in cocktails from Rye on the Road, and you've got yourself a party (black tie optional). We've got the full details on the menu below, and it's not too late to snag a $100 ticket if you want to attend.

We couldn't get the full details on Rye on the Road's cocktails, but we're told they'll feature Azalina's coconut jam, Small Hand Foods orgeat and pineapple syrup, Bathtub Gin's pink grapefruit marmalade, Bi-Rite limes and oranges, and plum drinking vinegar, among other swell-sounding ingredients.

Don't have $100 to drop on breathing the same rarefied, pasture-raised air as Queen Alice? You can also taste the winning products, minus the chef intervention, at the Good Food Awards Marketplace in the Ferry Building the next day. Entry is $5 at the door, or $15 in advance if you want to sample both the food and booze.
