The readers and SAVEUR’s editors have spoken: here are your winners for the 9th annual SAVEUR Blog Awards. Finalists flew in from as far as West Africa, Switzerland, and India to spend two days in Memphis, TN with the SAVEUR team talking shop, developing recipes, discovering the city's soul through its art, and swigging more than a couple cocktails before convening at the historic Clayborn Temple to learn who’d bring home the gold. As always, we're so happy to honor the people who inspire our cooking, our baking, and our martini-shaking—read up on the winners and finalists below.
Blog of the Year
The main aim of The Cinnaman is to create and revive memories in people through the ingredients blogger Majed Ali works with, the recipes he drafts, and the stories he tells through his food. People instinctively connect with food; it’s a language that transcends barriers. We all relate to those feelings we remember smelling, touching or creating food, and it’s important to be able to connect with people throughout the world via this medium. Each post on the blog is written in both in English and Arabic to connect as many people as possible. Food, after all, is something we all need and understand.
