Foodies in this province have proved they know their way around a fork — and a computer. Twelve Alberta blogs, including Eat My Words by Journal food writer Liane Faulder, have been nominated for the inaugural Canadian Food Blog Awards, which will crown the country’s foremost gourmands on Monday, Jan. 31. Founded by Toronto-based food blogger Sheryl Kirby, the CFBAs began accepting nominations in November for 16 categories, including Best Writing, Best Photography and Best Regional Blog. Nominees were shortlisted at the end of December and will be judged by a panel of 15 food writers, restaurant critics and chefs from across the country, including Food & Drink magazine’s James Chatto, the Globe and Mail’s Alexandra Gill, and Edmonton-raised Food Network host Corbin Tomaszeski. Readers can also vote for their favourite blog until Jan. 15 at canadianfoodblogawards.com.
