Project Food Blog: From My Heart

And so the sun has set on my participation in Project Food Blog, Foodbuzz’s first ever competition where 10 official challenges test the culinary and blogging skills of almost 2000 contestants, whittling them down until only one star remains…It was an honor and pleasure to compete in the company of so many talented bloggers.

Thank you all for your enthusiasm and encouragement. Thank you to the wonderful folks at foodbuzz and the esteemed judges Dana Cowin, Nancy Silverton, and Pim Techamuanvivit. Thank you to my friends and family for sharing the cooking, entertaining, and the excitement with me. It has also been great fun to meet so many terrific new food bloggers! Best wishes to the 24 bloggers remaining in the contest. The last three challenges are: Piece of Cake, You’re the (Restaurant) Critic, and The Final Post. All the remaining contestants are super qualified, we can’t wait to see who emerges as the winner. Bonne chance my friends!

  1. I’m keeping your video handy for the enchanting tomato gelee and for whatever you have in store next. Happy Thanksgiving. I’m sure your table will be filled with good things and grace.

    1. Hi Claudia – it makes me happy to hear that I will be in your home sharing a tutorial on tomato gelée! I sure do hope you make it and let me know all about it.

  8. It has been a pleasure to watch while you mastered each of these challenges Lori Lynn. Your talent shone through in every post , in every challenge and in your support of the other contestants.
