Food bloggers take us on a journey into their kitchens and to new restaurants; they share their favourite recipes, report their culinary experiments including their mishaps, and tell us their personal stories about food and cooking. BRIGITTE greatly enjoys the passion and creativity that bloggers exhibit and will award the BRIGITTE-Food-Blog-Award to the very best of the food-blogging scene.
Our jury - consisting of Nicole Stich (www.deliciousdays.com), Stevan Paul (www.nutriculinary.com) and Stefanie Luxat, head of the BRIGITTE food editorial department - has presented five exciting, carefully-selected blogs well worth reading on BRIGITTE.de every month. You had the opportunity to vote for your favourite blog to become the winning food blog of the month. Additionally, you were also welcome to suggest some of your favourite blogs, or even your own!
In January 2012, the jury will choose an overall winner out of all the monthly winners who will then be given the opportunity to create a magazine feature together with BRIGITTE's food and cooking experts. This feature will be published in the magazine and the winner will be involved in the entire production: brainstorming ideas, developing recipes, styling, taking part in the photo shoot and finalizing graphics and text. You can see an example of what this process is like in our making-of photos.
The winner, once picked by our jury, will be awarded the exciting opportunity of creating a magazine feature on recipes together with baking and cooking experts from BRIGITTE. This feature will finally appear in the magazine itself and the winner will be involved in its entire production: from brainstorming ideas, developing recipes, styling and taking part in the photo shoot to optimising graphics and text.
An example of what this process is like can be seen in our making-of photos for our raspberry feature.
The jury is composed of Nicole Stich, Stevan Paul und Stefanie Luxat. Every month, they present five blogs well worth seeing and reading - and choose the best blog at the end of the year.
