2008 Food Blog Awards: It's Time for You To Vote! (And Some Sourdough Inspiration)

It's great to hear that many of your 2009 bread baking goals (keep them coming!) involve sourdough. And we promise this really is going to be the year we finally take you step-by-step through the simple process of creating, caring for, and using your very own sourdough starter. I've been wanting to make the German Rye Sourdough in Local Breads since I first flipped through this wonderful book (which you can read more about here). My own rye starter died from neglect several months ago, so now I'm especially motivated. I miss my sourdough onion rye bread!

In the meantime, sourdough novices and experts alike will find plenty of beautiful and delicious inspiration over at Wild Yeast, which has just been nominated for Best Food Blog—Theme in the 2008 Food Blog Awards. Congratulations!

And I'm thrilled that my blog, Farmgirl Fare, has been nominated in the Best Food Blog—Rural category.

The Food Blog Awards are a wonderful way to discover dozens of the best food blogs around. The polls are open to the public and you can vote on all 14 categories here. Voting ends Saturday January 24th at 8pm EST. Have fun!

Local Breads is a fave of mine too.
Good luck in the awards!
I am looking forward to the sourdough installments.
(not sure why so many links to me pop up in the link list - I think it is because you are on my blogroll)

I'm so excited to hear that this is your sourdough year--because I just bought a starter. Tried sourdough English muffins last weekend--a solid B+. Looking forward to your recipes--when do we start?

Capt Batard,

What are you encountering? I saw some typos/errors in amounts in the galleys but I think they were all fixed in the final edition.

Having said that, I believe the US volume measurements were derived from the metric weight so are probably rounded a bit here and there. I use metric weight and have been pleased with the results by and large.
