YAY!!! Sassy Lawyer and MarketMan made it to Saveur's Worldwide Feast: 55 Great Global Food Blogs!!!

On September 18, 2011, I wrote a tribute blog to MarketMan and The Sassy Lawyer a.k.a. Connie Santiago-Veneracion, two Filipino blogs that I read and admire. 


Yesterday, Saveur Magazine, which describes itself as "a magazine for people who experience the world food first," featured the same two bloggers on its annual list of global blogs that they like, saying, 


"Here at SAVEUR.com, we spend lots of time reading food blogs — and it's no surprise that we've found smart, gastronomically-inclined bloggers in virtually every country on earth. These writers are committed to celebrating regional recipes, restaurants, techniques, and ingredients; we draw on their sites as culinary guides to everyday life in specific places all over the globe. (We're also moved by how many region-specific sites are written by expats who maintain a connection with their homeland through food: Korean cooks living in Australia, Greek cooks living in the Netherlands, Indian cooks living in Peru, and more.) 

"These 55 blogs comprise our must-read list in the international food blogging community, but surely there are more. Share your favorites with us in the comments. — The SAVEUR.com Editors."



I am so happy for Market Man and Connie (sorry guys, we are on first-name basis. We went to law school together, after all, Connie being a year younger than me). They deserve this added accolade: they write well, they know what they write about, and you can read from their blogs that they have an unmatched passion for life, expressed through food.


And kudos to me, for one-upping Saveur by two weeks!


Yeah. You know it. I'm gloating ;-)

OMG!!! It's one thing to get a comment from sassylawyer because we've been friends for more than 20 years, but I am a complete stranger to marketman. Thanks to both of you! I am not worthy!

EATERSHIP

If you like to eat well, live well, listen well and have the patience to go through my kilometric but hopefully entertaining blogs, then this is the page for you. I chose EATERSHIP because it sounds like "leadership," and because if you jumble it up, it could also read "hip eaters." Eat and read on!
