Food Blog Award 2016

Unique flavours

Creativity, passion, authenticity. The German-language food blogger scene is innovative, lively, huge and extremely varied. And last weekend, the Food Blog Award 2016 honoured the best of the best. The coveted awards were presented by Connecting Companies and the BurdaHome food brands at a gala in the Grand Hyatt Berlin.

With nine categories in total, the food blogging Oscars are the highlight of a three-day networking event. 450 bloggers took part from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, and around 30 nominees were invited to Berlin. This year’s expert jury included TV chefs Ralf Zacherl and Mario Kotaska. The award for the “Best Cookery Blog” went to “Geschmacksmomente” (Moments of Taste) by Karin Stöttinger of Wels, Austria, while Marc Kromer from Berlin took home the “Best Bakery Blog” for “Bake to the roots”. The Special Jury Prize went to Cornelia Glenz from Hamburg, who blogs at “Die See kocht” (The Sea Cooks), and the BurdaHome Special Prize was awarded to Claudia Zaltenbach from Munich for “Dinner um Acht” (Dinner at Eight). This year’s winners can look forward to a fantastic voyage of culinary discovery to Dubai.
