And the Winner is…Food Wishes!

I'm proud to announce that Food Wishes has been awarded the 2012 Tasty Award for Best Food Program: Web. I can't thank you all enough for taking the time to nominate and vote for the blog. 

I wasn’t able to attend the ceremonies in Hollywood, but our dear friend Sara, from Average Betty, did, and graciously accepted on our behalf. When she wasn’t accepting other people’s Tasty Awards, she was accepting her own, winning for Best Critic or Review Series. Congratulations, Sara, and thank you for representing!

Speaking of representing, check out this great video Sara did recently featuring David Chang’s Potato Volcano from the Momofuku Milk Bar in New York. If you're looking for a metaphorically suitable Valentine's side dish, this may be just the thing. Click here to check out the full blog post and recipe on Average Betty. Enjoy!

Dear Chef John,

i think everyone will agree who follows you that the judges would have made the same choice even if it was up to them and not us, if there was anyone who deserved to win more, it's you !!

i take this chance to wish you best of luck, health and high spirits always.

Chef John,

This award is not as grand as you deserve. Still, Congratulations!

If you were on Food NetWork, at least there would be one good show that truly teaches and entertains. Thank you!

Congratulations, Chef John & Michele!!

It was an honor to speak on your behalf and accept your much deserved award.

Thanks for the Potato Volcano praise; I had to chuckle (and blush) at, "metaphorically suitable Valentine's side dish."

Metaphorically suitable for Valentines Day - yes. Side Dish? No way. Especially if you're trying to save room for (ahem) dessert :)

I'm not one bit surprised. Congratulations for a well deserved award. I wasn't aware that there were any other sites except yours (lol) since my computer won't go anywhere but here. Thanks for all the great videos and I look forward to many more.
