how it began

Bites of the World was actually started when I entered a blogging contest for a $20,000 scholarship sponsored by Lenovo and Intel. I began the contest August 2010 and continued it through September. I made my way to the number one spot and managed to keep that place until the contest ended and all the top ten bloggers were entered in a raffle for the grand prize. Even though I didn't win the grand prize of 20K, I've decided to take my culinary adventure even further. So here I am still researching countries and still cooking exotic dishes. Someday maybe I'll be able to proudly declare that I've cooked a dish from every single country.

During the contest I was interviewed for a few papers and to commemorate my success, I've included links to the articles below.
