Independent Food Awards Sweet Recap

As many of you noticed, on Tuesday I awarded my 2006 Independent Food Award (hosted by tasteEverything) to Scharffen Berer’s Chocolate Covered Cacao Nibs.

If you have time, you should take a look at all five days of awards, but if you’re just interested in sweets, here’s the lowdown:

The Food Section awards The Sweetest Way to Travel Back in Time to Jahn’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlour and Restaurant in Richmond Hill, Queens, NY.

Gluten-free Girl awards The Best Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free Food You Will Ever Eat to the Chocolate Cake at Babycakes, New York, New York

Tasting Menu awards The Best Peanut Brittle I’ve Ever Tasted to Olde World Fudge at the Granville Public Market, in Vancouver, British Columbia. I bet they have good fudge, too.

Sydney Food Dairy awards The World’s Most Luxurious Ice Cream to White truffle ice cream with white bean and fig from Tetsuya’s in Sydney, Australia.

Portland Food and Drink awards Chocolate Better Than Morphine to Sahagún Chocolates, Portland, Oregon. Check out the interview post from the day before, too.

The Domestic Goddess awards Ice Cream I Wouldn’t Hesitate to Beg My Husband to Drive 2 1/2 Hours out of the City For to Kawartha Dairy in Bobcaygeon, Ontario, Canada

World on a Plate awards the Best Wicked Indulgence for $4 to Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookie from Della Fattoria, Ferry Plaza Market, San Francisco, California.

My favorite award has to be this one though:

My Madeline awards The Best Possible Nourishment for a Girl with Largely Impaired Olfactory Neurons: A Perfect Combination of Taste, Texture, and to Vosges Haut Chocolate’s ‘Barcelona Bar’.
