2012 Best Food Blog Awards: The Winners

This year, the third of the SAVEUR Best Food Blog Awards, as we sorted through nearly 40,000 nominations for blogs, videos, and websites, we found proof again and again that food blogs are a force to be reckoned with. In their infinite variety and extraordinary depth, they're a vital part of not only the internet, but of food journalism overall. It was a hard task to narrow down the entries into 6 finalists for each category, and we can only imagine how much harder it must be to choose just one winner from each group — thankfully, that job was left to you, with the winner in each category receiving a majority of user votes.

Congratulations to all of our talented, intelligent, hardworking finalists, and our warmest thanks to everyone who nominated blogs, voted for them, or takes the time to visit them. Here are your 2012 Best Food Blog Award winners!
