A couple of things are happening out in the greater food & drink blogiverse that readers here might be interested in.
First, there’s the 4th annual edition of Menu For Hope, a fundraising campaign undertaken by food & drink bloggers around the wold each December. Originally started in 2004 to raise money for victims of the tsunami, it now raises funds for the UN World Food Programme, with this year’s take earmarked for a school lunch program in Lesotho.
While I’m not participating in the event via this blog, we’re going to be raffling off a great prize package over at Taste T.O. with the theme being a “Culinary Tour of Toronto”. Preliminary details are up now, and the campaign officially kicks off next Monday, December 10th.
Under-way now is the nomination period for the 2007 Food Blog Awards, presented by the Well Fed Network. While I harbour no illusions that this blog world have a hope in hell of winning anything – even if I did meet the ‘6 posts per month’ minimum for consideration – there are several other beer blogs that would be well deserving of the award for ‘Best Blog Covering Drinks (Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic)‘. So if you have a particular favourite, get over there and nominate it.
