"Before eGullet, we would share our culinary queries with our friends and family. In the eGullet era, we can cast our questions and opinions -- whether they be about soup dumpling recipes or the best cuts of meat sold at a local Costco -- into the world at large. And the world answers."

We're very pleased that Saveur magazine has included the eGullet Society in its Saveur 100 for 2009. This acknowledgment, from such a respected journal, is a great New Year's gift for all the volunteers, members and fellow travelers who have lent a hand in creating our one-of-a-kind organization. Many thanks to all of you for making this possible.

We would also like to thank those who have provided the Society with much-needed financial support. As you know, we are a nonprofit public charity funded solely by donations. As 2008 comes to an end, those of you who itemize deductions in the US may wish to take advantage of a few more hours to support the Society tax-free for this year. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of US law.

To make a one-time donation in any amount, please follow [url="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_xclick&business=giving%40egullet%2eorg&item_name=Take%20Gully%20to%20Dinner&item_number=tgtd0000&no_shipping=0&tax=0¤cy_code=USD&lc=US&bn=PP%2dDonationsBF&charset=UTF%2d8""]this link[/url]. To support the eGullet Society at the $50, $100 or $250 per year level, please sign up for a Society donor membership (note: you must already be an eGullet Society member in order to upgrade to a Society donor membership; if you are not a member [url="http://forums.egullet.org/index.php?act=Reg&CODE=00""]please join[/url]). Society donor members receive an assortment of goodies, depending on which package they select.

If you wish to share congratulations, please do so in this Member News topic.

Wishing you a happy, healthy and delicious 2009.

With relish,
