Congratulations, Chef! When I logged on to vote, I checked the other websites (to make sure you were indeed the best) and found a few new great food sites. (They come in a close second...)

Thanks for turning me on to some new sites and enjoy your reward (do they give you a reward? Plaque? A laurel and hearty handshake...?)

Did you have your doubts? Of course you won. Congratulations to you and Michele too. I know she is your right hand in this effort.

Congratulations!

I have found your site about 2 months ago, watched practically all of the videos so far and often make lunches based on them.

I am really enjoying the site and carry on with superb work!

WoooHooooo!

I knew it. I agree with another poster that because of this poll, I found some interesting sites, but it was Chef John all the way! I'm a visual person and you had not only pictures, but great instructions for your recipes (not to mention a quirky sense of humor).
I actually tried to vote a second (and possibly 3rd time) but was unable to.

And a big thanks to your mom for her Key Lime Pie recipe! I brought it to my boss' house for Easter and it was the first dessert to go. When they asked for the recipe, I gave them the address to your award winning blog. Just giving credit where credit is due.

Much continued success. Here's to your dreams coming true! >clink!<
