2009 Saveur 100 Declares "the eGullet Era"
Posted 31 December 2008 - 01:37 PM
I'm writing to thank and congratulate all of the Society members for this honor. Saveur wrote that they love how the community we have built "has brought cooks together and democratized the world of food." Those cooks are you, our terrific Society membership, whose fervent interest in food and drink, in cooking and eating, make eG Forums the outstanding resource that it is.

I have learned more about food and cooking in my three short years here than I could have ever hoped by myself. Not only has this community given me solid information on how to cook - I would have starved or gone broke for sure with all the amazing posters in the regional forums; but it's given me the inspiration to try new cuisines, learn new techniques, and approach new ingredients with confidence. I know that if I come home with something strange or random from the supermarket, someone, somewhere on the forums will know what to do with it. The world answers, indeed.

I've learned so much, and met some wonderful people.
My wish for the next era is, that more people from all over the planet will join - and by that I mean Swedish people from Sweden, South African people from South Africa, etc. - to make this even more a truly international database of food knowledge.

For those who have yet to see this issue, here's a telling quote:
"...Kinsey's home cooking is anything but amateur; his style is energetic, creative, and informed by tricks of the trade."
...I just let people know about something I made for supper that they might enjoy, too. That's all it is. (Nigel Slater)
