And the Award Goes to .....

I started the idea of awarding the recipes , because I was feeling that such wonderful creation should not go unnoticed . Also I see so many variation and creativity with cooking, presenting and describing the recipes which basically inspired me for the idea of awarding recipes. Cooking is an art and as just one category was not enough to judge it , I basically choose 3 to have winners with. It was my first experience with voting and awarding , I was little skeptical about the response . But all of you made it success , though some choose to don't vote, I don't know why ? I genuinely hope that from now on you will not forget to vote with the roundup comment section.

Without taking much of your time, Here are the Winners...

The best Presented Recipe

Most Authentic Recipe
Most creative Recipe
Well, for first two categories we didn't had any tough competition ,as the winners got fairly high votes then their competitors . For third category many of your voted for different dishes made by me, and I think, Mediterranean Eggplant soup is the deserving among them. I was reluctant to award myself for this competition, but as the rule says the most voted should be winner
, in future my recipes will be excluded from the competitions, somehow I find it little awkward :D and funny :p too , to award my own recipes. After all I started this award things to spread this word of love for you and your talent so you deserve it the most. Also I never thought you might be liking my recipes to this extend ;) , otherwise I might have thought of making that rule earlier . I am proud to get this place in your heart ,and I will try to keep this blog alive up to your expectations.

Thank you all , and a big round of applause :~ for all the winners including me :D .

Check out rules of VoW-Bittergourd and logo here. The last date for which is 15th April 2008. Send your entries soon ,and make your heart sweet with bitter gourd :) .

Did you check this lovely pink color of my drink :p???

thanks for letting me know, I have got it :) .

Ravathi,
lady with nice name ... that's how I called you a year ago or so , right ? I really like your name too much . And glad to see your comment here today :) .
May be you didn't checked that this is a monthly event now , so for bitter gourd its 15th April as last date to submit your dish with bitter gourd.
and for Brinjals, yeah I think we missed a winning entry from you :( .
How about subscribing to rss , so that it will keep you updates with the ongoing things . Just a suggestion .

Meera,
Thank you :) .It is such an encouragement to hear it fro ma friend like you . going to post about arusuvai chain today with ingredients you sent, it's a secret don't let others know what it was ;) .
Don't worry if you can't get it, do it if its easily possible . if you have any dish with that already posted you can send that too.


Kaykat,
Oh come on, for a creative mind like you there is no challenge with any cooking,I know that . Just waiting to see what you come up with :)

Meera said...

Yes, already posted recipe is my fallback plan for the bittergourd event. But wanted to try a lovely, new recipe!! Let's see. There are still 14 more days. hopefully, I will be able to find a bittergourd!!
