During a 90-minute presentation on Twitter (#foodappawards), Toque founder Erika Kotite and food app critic Steve Cooper announced finalists and winners in 15 categories. Each finalist app was tested, evaluated and scored by independent judges in the culinary and digital media community.

“We were thrilled by the caliber of design, utility and innovation these apps had,” Kotite says. “It was a lot of work as we had more submissions than expected but we all came out of it better informed of the app’s incredible potential.”

Here are the complete list of winners:
