The 2013 Best Food Blog Awards: The Winners!

In SAVEUR's ongoing mission to chronicle a world of authentic cuisine, we find what we're looking for more and more in one place: online. Of the tens of thousands of nominations that came in this year—blogs great and small, visual and textual, humorous and profound, technical and amateur, exuberant and austere—we found not just great writing, great photography, and a great commitment to the importance of food to storytelling and community-building, but also some blogs that truly spoke to us. We're thrilled to shine a light on the sixty-eight unique blogs that are finalists in the fourth annual SAVEUR Best Food Blog Awards—and even more delighted to announce the winners in each category. Congratulations to all!
