2011 Food App Awards Finalists

By on Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

They came, from international companies and one-man/woman studios. Apps built to render your cookbook library (or at least your recipe files) obsolete and apps that did one just thing, but did it well.

Toque’s 2011 Food App Awards offers app developers and owners a chance to be recognized for their creativity, technical excellence and ability to solve problems we didn’t even know we had. More than 15 categories within the food and drink realm will ultimately have one winner; in addition, a Best Overall award will be announced. All on December 8 at 5:30 p.m. PST on Twitter (#foodappawards).

First time out the gate, our Food App Awards garnered an enthusiastic response–so much so that it took us a little bit longer to come up with the finalists than expected. But at last we are ready to reveal the official list. Meet our panel of judges right here. They have their work cut out for them.
