The Times Online’s Top 50 Food Blogs

When I heard that ‘A Slice of Cherry Pie’ had been listed as number 2 in The Times Online’s Top Ten Blogs for the Home Cook I was both stunned and delighted. But imagine my utter surprise to receive an email from The Times this evening, just over a week later, informing me that ‘A Slice of Cherry Pie’ has also made it into their 50 of the World’s Best Food Blogs! I didn’t blog about the first list but, forgive me, I feel two is worth a mention.

I feel very honoured indeed for my blog to have been recognised in such a way when there are so many fantastic food blogs out there. Do take some time to take a look at the blogs on the lists and also all the brilliantly inspiring blogs listed on The UK Food Bloggers Association’s blog.

I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome new readers who have found me thanks to The Times online – I’m so pleased you have and I do hope you enjoy your visit here and come back again very, very soon.

    Yes, wholeheartedly agree with MsMarmitelover. Well done. Nice to see a UK food blogger get in there. These lists always seem so dominated by US blogs.

    Keep up the good work!

    Oh wow, congratulations Julia! What a massive achievement!

    I’ve just seen this and thought of you – you have to find someone to knit it for you!

    I follow your site too from France, and I think the honour is well deserved; Let’s face it food is one of the most important things in all our lives, so do keeping posting you lovely recipes. I am English and used to live in Rainham Kent, don’t know if that is near you. My daughter still lives near there.

    Hey everyone – you’re all so lovely; thanks for your kind comments.
    Jeanne – and many congrats to you too. Let’s indeed here it for the UK bloggers – hoorah!

    Alex – hmmm…I think perhaps a fat, juicy, rare steak.

    Anne – oh I LOVE it! It’s so perfect; yes I must find someone who can knit if for me.

    Delphine – I couldn’t agree more (about food being so important). Rainham isn’t too far from me at all; just a zip down the motorway.

    Reasons to be cheerful – not deliberately gluten-free but yes, take a look around…
