SFDB Post Of The Week
SFDB selects its Post of the Week by going back and reviewing all the Sifts that we've done over the past 7 days. We find the best post of the week and note the runners ups as we judge them to be.
Wow. It was a super week for blogging in the South Florida blogosphere. I had 10 posts that made the final cut. But, of course, I only have room for 4 of them so there were a number of wonderful posts that are not mentioned here today. Let's get started, shall we?
Winner: What goes on in the kitchen of a first class restaurant has always been a bit of a mystery to many diners. But this week, Food For Thought gave us a peek into how some local artisan chefs work their magic. Wearing a chef's jacket and actually lending a hand in the kitchen, Food For Thought put his readers in the driver's seat for one night at Paradigm at Neomi's Grill in Sunny Isles and took them minute by minute through the preparation and the serving of an exotic meal. The experience, which was actually documented in two posts, was very well written and generously supplemented with plenty of images. It's an experience the likes of which I've never seen documented in a blog format before. For his extraordinary efforts that provide a one-of-a-kind insight, I'm happy to recognize Food For Thought's two-part post called "In The Test Kitchen at Paradigm." with this week's SFDB's Post of the Week.
Runners-Up: Brickell Life continues to produce some great exposes on life in the Brickell area and this week his post titled On The Boat To Key Biscayne For Breakfast, shared his ride across Biscayne Bay for a delicious Sunday breakfast in true South Florida style. There's something about Swampstyle's writing that makes it wonderful in a very strange but exposed way. His Father's Day post, called Are You My Papi? follows that formula in a particularly gratifying way this week. And finally, Sex and the Beach does a magnificent job on a review of Kafa Cafe, making this blogger want to go out and try Ethiopian food when I don't even like Ethiopian food.
The Post of the Month poll is coming up [already!] so stay tuned and, of course, 'til next time, people, keep on blogging!
