And, The First Blooker Prize goes to

..... Julie Powell of the The Julie/Julia project.

This prize is devoted to books born out of blogs, and Julie who tried to learn every recipe in a french cook book and chronicled her experience in her blog apparently got her a book deal, and beat even belle de jour, my favorite blogger, and the inspirition behind my first blog ;-) , to win this prestigious prize.

Julie Powell, a frustrated unpublished author approaching 30 in a dead end office job, came up with the idea of attempting to cook all 524 recipes in Julia Child's 1961 cookbook Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Her husband suggested
chronicling her efforts online, where her musings on life, love and cooking drew an ever-larger cult following. The blog led to a publishing deal, and the resulting tome - Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Kitchen Apartment - sold more than 100,000 copies.[ link ]

belle de jour might have inspired me to sign up for my first blogspot account, but I m glad a food blogger won the blooker prize.
for I also write a Food Blog, if you didn't know.
