About the Death by Chocolate Food Blogger Contest

Everyone is eligible to enter the Culinate Death by Chocolate contest for general readers, but food bloggers with an appetite for chocolate have an extra chance to win in the food blogger contest. To participate, simply submit a blog post that fits the chocolate theme.

The contest opens to submissions on January 30, 2008. Culinate readers will be able to vote for their favorite chocolaty post beginning Feburary 4, so be sure to submit your entry by then.

The contest closes Feburary 8, at which time our panel of esteemed judges will select the winning blogger from among the top 10 vote-getters. Judges include pastry chef/blogger David Lebovitz, baking expert/blogger Dorie Greenspan, blogger Deb of Smitten Kitchen (winner of Culinate's GrillMe contest in 2007), Chuck Siegel of Charles Chocolates, and members of the Copia and Culinate staffs).

The winning blogger (and guest) will receive an expenses-paid chocolatey trip to Napa (details). To further incent California bloggers we offer the winning blogger the option to forgo the air coupons in exchange for a dinner for two at the French Laundry (reservations are the responsibility of the winning blogger).

So what does all this mean to you? It means you have multiple ways to win:

Eligibility in the food blogger category is for (you guessed it) food and beverage bloggers only. Such eligibility will be determined at the sole discretion of Culinate. Those who don't blog, or who blog primarily about other topics, are not eligible to win. Your submission must identify a specific post (old or new, story or recipe, spectacular photography, etc.) relevant to the chocolate theme. Only one per blogger, please.
