To nominate a blog you need to leave a comment on this entry. Your comment should contain the name of the blog, the main URL for the blog, and (if possible) the URL for a RSS/Atom feed. For example:


Unless you login via one of the supported authentication services (Typekey, WordPress, OpenID, Yahoo, AIM, etc.) your comment will not be published immediately. Unauthenticated comments are placed in a moderation queue. Due to the volume of comments, it may take up to 24 hours for your comment to be approved. Comments from authenticated users will be published immediately.

Every so often our spam fighting service flags an authenticated comment as spam. If put more than 10 URL's in a comment it will set off the junk filter. If your comment doesn't immediately appear that's probably what happened. We review and "unjunk" these comments as we are approving unauthenticated comments. We're sorry for the inconvenience.

  • The nomination period is scheduled to end on Wednesday, November 19, 2008.

Sass and Veracity

I don't even do food blogs, but I do this one. She has quite a following now, and you can actually make that stuff and learn something in the process.

Foodie At Fifteen
This is a kid who knows plans to be a master chef and is charting his course with each entry. It's hysterical, honest, irreverent, and well-written.

I second the nomination of Expatriate's Kitchen! I have used Expat Chef's recipes at least once a week ever since discovering her site about 18 months ago!

Expatriate's Kitchen

Cafe Grendel

The blog awards really need a 'Best Coffee Blog' category though - although the food photos at Cafe Grendel are pretty good.

Cabbie's Cooking

I nominate The Pioneer Woman Cooks. I love her blog!

101 Cookbooks. Heidi Swanson makes real food. She's awesome!


New Yorker living in Zurich, Switzerland - baking, cooking and eating her way throughout the world... food and travel together, mostly food of course!

How nice! Quite the pleasant surprise, so very much appreciated.

Bryanna's "Notes from the Vegan Feast Kitchen"

Bryanna's "Notes from the Vegan Feast Kitchen"

I just love her well explained, delicious recipes.


I would like to nominate a food/adventure blog by Leslie Ray.
She combines fantastic food recipes with her experiences living in Aix en Provence. The trials and tribulations of being an American abroad taking comfort in the local food.

La Fourchette

Diary of a Locavore

Daily stories, recipes, and updates on local food.

Trina's Kitchen covers politics, the economy and food. And she called the slump/recession months ago (and started aiding her readers on limited funds by providing very simple recipes).

Jeffrey Tastes - food blog about adventures in consumption in and around New York - San Francisco Bay Area restaurant reviews - Blog and Bar American

Everyone's favorite food- well sort of Beer. Give Hoppsy a look it's a fun site with heaps of tips on different brands, brewing, types of beer and even cooking with beer- give it a look.

Butter on the Endive. From a chef's perspective...

"The 99 Cent Chef," that says it all. The Chef cooks and finds great 99 cent meal deals.
Presented with wit and tongue firmly in cheek, my blog features tasty recipes, photos and clever videos.

The 99 Cent Chef food blog features budget recipes, informative photos and clever videos. Called "Rachel Ray on Crack" this irreverent foodies recipes are actually quite tasty.
Best Food Blog nominee:

The Girl Who Ate Everything

So Good -

So Good broke the Papa John's/Lebron James "Crybaby" story that forced Papa John's to offer $.23 pizza's and a formal apology to Lebron James and the city of Cleveland. So Good has broken a number of other food stories throughout 2008.

Here's a list of the media coverage the site has received in the past year:

this is great! all about how to eat ethically, healthily, organically, etc, in an urban environment, by a guy in new york. recipes for regional/seasonal stuff at the greenmarkets, political stuff, actions to take, vids of food preparation. really good...

The Last Appetite
Phil's witty, acerbic food blog has just turned one year old and has also turned the heads of the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal (Asia) and many more.

Originally starting with Cambodian street food blog 'Phnomenon', Phil tried to 'eat his way out of Asia' and now is reviewing a wider palate from the vantage point of Australia.

Don't take my word for it, take a bite for yourself and see why his articles are getting picked up by local and international media.
a great site all about beer

I nominate La Vida Locavore. It is informative and fun and a great place to learn about policies that favor local food production and organics.
