Paris Pâtisseries :: Great or The Greatest?
I was shocked last week to see that Paris Pâtisseries had been nominated in Saveur.com’s 2012 Best Food Blog Awards. Apparently their editorial team reviewed 40,000 sites, submitted by their readers, and whittled those down to six sites in sixteen categories. Needless to say, it’s an honor just to be nominated.
Seriously, I am flattered just for the nomination. You’ve probably long since noticed I don’t even have an “About Me” page – filled with “I’ve been featured in…” references – as I’m usually not keen on anything more than tongue-in-cheek braggadocio (hence the headline of this entry). So please seriously consider the other nominees in the category for your vote, too. They’re all awesome and deserve the recognition: Snap Food, Kevin Eats, Ulterior Epicure, Tiny Urban Kitchen, and Judging Your Breakfast.
Oh, and remember that you have to sign in to Saveur.com in order for your vote to count. This is important, because I’d love to see some of my favorites win in their respective categories. My friend Meg at Paris by Mouth was nominated for Best Culinary Travel Blog. And the blog I most admire for fully leveraging the potential of blogging – The Pioneer Woman – was nominated for Best Celebrity Food Blog.
And what if I don’t win? I’ll probably be forced to binge on pastries and candy until I no longer feel the bitter humiliation of defeat. And if you’re thinking, “Won’t you already be courting diabetes on a daily basis by that point?” Well, yes . . . yes, I will. So I guess my psychological pain will be dulled, no matter what.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go figure out who to vote for in the Best Baking & Desserts category. But why am I not seeing Jacques Genin and his team there? Oh, wait, that’s because Julien’s too busy making caramel here to get a blog started.
