Great company to be in

Posted on February 18, 2009 by Aun

It’s always nice to be recognized for the things you do. I was very flattered to be included in a recent article published in the Times Online. The article lists 50 of the world’s best food blogs, as chosen by the Times Online Real Food Editor Nick Wyke. The list is pretty cool and I have to admit, rather sheepishly, that I’ve even discovered some really delicious and fabulous blogs I didn’t know about through the article.

Starting next week, Nick will also be running interviews with all of us. I’m really looking forward to reading them, especially Dorie Greenspan’s, who is one of my wife S’s personal food heroes.

    Congrats! This is my favourite Asian blog. I read and learnt all about Osaka here before getting there on a cruise. My other two other fav reads, Grab Your Fork and Lucullian Delights are also there in the top 50.

    Congratulations, it is indeed well deserved, your blog would be on my top five if I had one. But speaking of Singaporean blogs, I know they say the list is not exhaustive but I couldn’t help but be very surprised at the absence of Kuidaore, or did I miss it – I checked several times ?
