last chance to vote for me! and a big thank-you!

I just wanted to say thank you to all of those very kind people who have voted for Marmaduke Scarlet in the Observer Food Monthly Awards.   

For those of you who don't know, The Observer (and its sister paper, The Guardian) host both the exemplary Word of Mouth blog as well as the Food Monthly magazine - both genuinely innovative and interesting contributors to the British food scene. Of course my absolute favourite food writer in the whole world also writes for them (if you couldn't tell who it is . . . it is of course, the divine Nigel Slater).


But yes you can vote for me! No . . . really . . . you can . . . I am inviting you to vote for my website at the Observer Food Monthly Awards. (I'm probably being a bit vain, but if I don't make a song and dance about it, no-one else will!)
Amongst the categories is Best Food Blog (UK based) - they are looking for "the most knowledgeable, wittiest and most informative online foodie." Look, one out of three ain't bad.
What's in it for you?
Well you could make me very, very happy. Which I am sure is reward enough. But if that wasn't enough, OFM are also offering all sorts of delicious prizes to those that vote.
