HubPages' Food Writing Contest Has a Winner!

Posted By on Mon, Jul 12, 2010 at 5:19 PM

Our favorite morsel from the Web.

From restaurant reviews on Yelp to self-published cookbooks, DIY food writing is basking in a golden age. Of course, some is better than others, and some of the better surfaced in HubPages' Eat, Drink, and Be Hubbalicious contest, which ended last week. Beginning on June 1, readers filed articles organized around broad topics seleceted by the S.F.-based content site: recipes, world cuisines, ingredients. I should admit that I had the honor of being one of four judges. I should also admit it was a pleasure to help choose the contest's grand winner, which netted the writer $1,000: a piece named The Cuisine of the Creole Gullahs, by habee, a freelance writer and retired teacher. Habee's exploration of Gullah cooking is painstaking ― check it out. Then, get writing.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
