Liebster Blog Award

1 May

I’m excited to receive my very first blog award – the Liebster Blog Award – thanks to themustardseed, a lovely blog of which every recipe makes me think "this is MY kind of food" and every photograph whets my appetite. Thank you, themustardseed!

Liebster-Blog-Award

Now is my turn to pass on the award. The rules are:

  • Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
  • Link back to the blogger who awarded you.
  • Give your top 5 picks for the award.
  • Inform your top 5 by leaving a comment on their blog.
  • Post the award on your blog.

Forwarding the award to 5 food blogs I was instantly hooked on to and now enjoy reading regularly.

  • My Fancy Pantry: For its unique take on Indian food, often fusing surprising elements into delicious gravies.

  • SpiceRoots: For the Kashmiri bent of its recipes wrapped in evocative prose.

  • Spusht : For its exuberant voice and its inclination to draw mathematics into cooking [who’da thunk of kheer expressed as an algebraic equation?]

  • Sublime Palate: For its beautiful pictures, food treading the balance between Indian and Thai, thought-provoking preludes to recipes that never fail to trigger in me personal trails of memories.

  • What’s Cookin’: For the etymological titbits that Prerna dishes out with her fluent writing and innovative food-related articles that go beyond recipes.

I read elsewhere that the Liebster Award must be passed on to blogs with relatively small readership as of now, and so I haven’t included any from my long list of favorite food blogs – most of them have subscribers of the order of thousands. If you’re new to the food blogging scene, do have a look at my blogroll to discover some beautiful food blogs from the world over.
