Winner: Best Food Blog - Restaurant Reviews

Wow. Grab Your Fork has officially been awarded Best Food Blog - Restaurant Reviews.

Thank you to everyone who voted. It was a very close contest in the end, and congratulations must be extended to the other worthy finalists in this category: congrats to Becks 'n Posh, DC Foodies, NYC Nosh and Onokinegrindz. As the only Australian finalist across all categories, it was a nice win for Down Under!

In addition to a shiny winners' jpg for this site, I will also be receiving a copy of Just Desserts by Gordon Ramsay. Thank you Well Fed for donating this prize, and thanks to all the judges for their tireless efforts in organising this community event.

Of course thank YOU for reading this blog. My passion for food, for eating, for photographing, and sharing it all, is always spurred on by your comments, your feedback, and your thoughtful emails.

Congratulations to all the winners in the remaining categories. I like to think that in the end though, the ultimate winner is our appetite. And our ever-grateful stomach.

    Hi Thomas - Thanks! No celebratory dinner yet, but given my penchant for eating out, it can't be too far away :)

    Hi chocolatesuze - Thank you :) I'm sure there will be plenty of dinners. I think my life is dedicated to celebratory dinners :)

    Hi food hog - Thanks again. I had no idea I was your first :) Food blogs are fantastically addictive aren't they? Glad you ar equally hooked!

    Hi m-h - Thank you. At times it seems like hard work, but then I think, who am I kidding? This is too much fun :)

    Hi missk - Thanks. It's a nice thought that Grab Your Fork is so well recognised. Thanks for reading :)

    Hi farmgirl - Thank you. It's been an incredible start to the year.

    woohoo! go you!

    i'm very pleased that my computer is finally fixed so i can read your blog again. the old standby machine i've been using simply refused to load your site. :(

    this past week i finally got to see your photo of the saigon pho combination drink, and it spurred me on to organise an impromptu family excursion on the ferry to chinatown this afternoon to get one of my own.

    Congratulations Helen! Does this put you under pressure now?? Seriously, it's a great win and I have to say that I always check our your recommendations when I send the Figman up to your city (he loved Oscillate Wildly last time!)

    Hi Plum - No, the most pressure I feel is from the shrinking waistband on my jeans :) Glad to hear Oscillate Wildly was received so well - I've been meaning to head back there. They have a new chef, Daniel Puskas, who has worked at Alinea!

    Congratulations Helen! Your blog was most useful during my recent visit to Sydney - I tried quite a few of the restaurants you've reviewed :)

    Hi CW - Glad to be of assistance :) Sounds like your stay was jam-packed with activities.

    I've been meaning to visit the Chocolate Dog too. As soon as you mentioned mole I bumped it up my priority list :)
