Catrin Neumayer alias CookingCatrin about the Award: “I am so happy to be awarded next to such well-known personalities of the international blogger-scene with this award for food and online-marketing. It shows the high importance of modern and austrian cuisine, easy recipes and foodblogs with high-quality content. The award is a special honor because it was the reader who decided. To be awarded among more than 1.000 blogs in austria as the best culinary online magazine is amazing and shows that we have the most faithful fans, readers and partners.”

Such awards are the “fees” for the huge amount of work and the passion that I, together with Carletto Photography, spend on the Foodblog.

It is a delight to show that you cannot only be successful with blogging in a big city like Vienna but also on the “countryside” in Carinthia. I hope to motivate new readers with this award to look for Foodblogs with high-quality contents and to motivate for a better and more conscious use of food and cooking.
