From Too Many Chefs -

March 22, 2004
Gourmet Dishes on the Net

The April edition of Gourmet Magazine picks the finest food blogs on the Internet. Too Many Chefs was - Well, we don't REALLY believe in competition between sites and if we'd won we would have sent Sacheen Cruz Littlefeather up to reject the award but.. OK, we're green with envy, but we're VERY happy for the sites mentioned, all of which are excellent.

The very deserving sites featured in the article are:

The Food Section
The Radical Chef
Chocolate & Zucchini
Bourrez Visage

We've admired many of these sites for the last year, and have added the others to our list of links (over there)===> so we can enjoy them easily from now on.

We do reject the award of the word "flogs" used in the article as a name for food blogs.

Barrett, you might want to take into account the fact that we are only a little over a month old and they probably researched their article at least a month ago - it would have taken a psychic genius to find us and decide we were going to become wonderful enough to include! Of course there are those (mostly in my family, oddly) who would have been intuitive enough to predict just that...! ;)

We've got a ways to go to get to the level of these great blogs. It is incentive to stir up the competitive instincts for next year, though!

The whole thing makes me giggle a bit. Thanks for the mention up there Barrett.
I'm really quite surprised Deb at MurrayHill 5 didn't get in there, she's done an amazing job. Well, that could be said for many blogs. In fact, I didn't hit the blog scene until early last year and every week I am amazed at the shear volume of excellent writers and chefs/cooks out there. They consistently deliver.
I'm hoping Gourmet and other rags give up more room for us. The quality is there.

The initial research by Gourmet, as in when I received the first e-mail, was done last year. The second batch of e-mails came in February. I suppose one of their criteria was the size of the archives. :)

TRC- I was just having fun with the idea and don't want anyone to think we think we deserve a mention.

Yet. :)
