When a friend of mine nominated me for Saveur Magazine’s Best Food Blog Awards a few weeks ago, I thought it was very nice but I really didn’t think I stood a chance. I mean, there are a ton of great blogs out there that I love, admire and avidly read. There was surely no chance that little old me and my humble blog would be one of the chosen ones among the 30,000 nominations?
I was flabbergasted to find out that I am a finalist in the Best Culinary Travel Blogs category! I cannot even begin to describe the rush of emotions I felt on March 31st at exactly 1:40pm when Aimee broke the news to me. I spend the rest of the afternoon in a teary daze, thanking everyone as the messages kept pouring in. I must have said “thank you” a hundred times but I will say it again and again. I am humbled, grateful and still speechless. Thank you all for the support. I started Will Travel for Food a few years ago so I can have a platform to share my coups de cœur with you all. I am utterly dedicated to this blog and to all of the readers. I never dreamed it would one day be nominated as one of the Best Culinary Travel Blogs in the world!
