Food Wishes Video Recipes Wins "Best Video Blog" at 2009 Foodbuzz Blog Awards!

It's with much joy, pride, and humility (well, two out of three ain't bad) that I officially make the announcement this blog has won the "Best Video Blog" at the First Annual Foodbuzz Blog Awards! I think Homer Simpson put it best when he said, "Woo Hoo!"

I can't express how much all your support over the last year has meant to me, not because I can't find the words, but because I'm way too hung over. I also have to run off to the last event of the weekend, a farewell brunch at Restaurant LuLu, featuring a make-you-own Bloody Mary(s) bar, which should really help with this headache.

Speaking of which, I haven't had the time or brain waves to find any real photos of the event, so I grabbed this picture of some guy named Rick Best posing with a borrowed Oscar statue at 1989 Academy Awards to simulate the scene. A million thanks to Foodbuzz and everyone involved. Stay tuned for a recap and links to the other winners!

Here is the actual iPhone video footage I took of the announcement:

Just a little thing, more like a wish, since people all around the world are following your website (i'm brazilian!) I'd suggest that you also put the other Units of measurementn (kilo, Liter, etc...) But Thank you for the blogg and I'll keep enjoying cooking your recipes!

Chef John said...

Thanks! No extra time to convert recipes, but that's why you'll see the recipe converter on the side bar to use.

Congrats, Chef ... you are so deserving of this award. If this doesn't get the attention of The Food Network, I can't imagine what it would take!

U totally deserve this! I met u in may whilst looking for a homemade tortilla recipe. All along I had bn watching Rachael Ray and she does not do stuff like that. Thats when I met you on youtube with yo no knead pizza dough. You sir, are responsible for part of my turnaround in the kitchen. Yesterday I made homemade wholewheat lasagna with spinach in bechamel layered with tomato sauce and parmesan cheese and my kids ate with gusto! So happy with that achievement and now u win! Am so happy!
