The 2011 SAVEUR Best Food Blog Awards: The Winners

See the winners of the 2012 Best Food Blog Awards »

When we opened nominations for this year's Best Food Blog Awards, we had no idea we'd find ourselves deluged with over 40,000 individual plugs for websites. Narrowing them down to six finalists in seventeen categories was no easy task — but an even harder job fell to the thousands of you who voted, picking just one blog above all others in its category. Our warmest thanks go to everyone who cast their vote; our heartiest congratulations to all our finalists. Here are your 2011 SAVEUR Best Food Blog Award winners!
