Seattle's Accidental Hedonist's Food Blog Awards

Thanks for the nomination Bill. And thanks for running the Food Blog Awards, Accidental Hedonist. Chocolate and Zucchini is a fine blog. My only quibble is that there are 1000s NOT 100s of food blogs (if you just take the French, English, and German ones that I occasionally read via their RSS feeds).

From Portals and KM: Food Bloggers - Boston Globe.:


The article mentions the first annual ''Food Blog Awards" were launched by Kate Hopkins, who runs Accidental Hedonist from Seattle. It quotes Kate, ''Yes, a half-dozen or so food blogs have been recognized by some of the mainstream media, but there are well over 100 food blogs out there, and plenty of good writing."

Chez Pim won for best restaurant reviews. I guess they did not see the reviews on this blog. Best Overall Blog was Chocolate & Zucchini by Clotilde Dusoulier. The Globe adds, "The site gets about 4,500 visits a day and recounts, in English, Dusoulier's daily Parisian food adventures, such as a 900-word ode to and instructions for a tarte tatin with salted butter caramel. In 15 months, the blog has turned Dusoulier, a computer engineer, into a professional food writer, cooking instructor, restaurant consultant, and conference speaker."

I would add VanEats by Barb Wong and Roland Tanglao to the list along with their picks:
