Foodbuzz is a social network and community site for foodies (and winos). In addition to that, they also aggregate blog posts about food and wine from all over the Web. The site is chock full of recipes, reviews, suggestions, tips, beautiful photos and great articles. Now they are getting into the awards business.
They are recognizing the best food and, *AHEM*, wine blogs with these awards, and are currently accepting nominations. You do not need to join their site to submit your nominations. However, if you are a reader of this site, chances are you’ll love Foodbuzz.
