July Winner – Food Stories Award for Excellence in Storytelling

Food Stories Award for Excellence in Storytelling - Winner

It is such a huge honor to announce our third winner for the Food Stories Award for Excellence in Storytelling!

A huge round of applause for Karen & Corby from We Call Him Yes! Chef! :-)

The tagline for their blog is because life is too short to eat cr**py (bad) food and I couldn’t agree more!

From their blog … My husband, Corby, is the cook around our house and I am the photographer (it’s not that I don’t like to cook…he’s just better at it and I’m fine with that!) We call him Yes! Chef! because we love him and we love his food. And when we help him, and he asks us to do something, we don’t question it…we just say, “Yes! Chef!” Although, he did not graduate from culinary school, and he is not an “official” chef, he is a fabulous cook. He has worked in a restaurant as a line cook and he does a little catering at some of the local wineries. I hope to highlight his food and recipes and some of my own food through my photography. That’s all…food and photography. Well, maybe a little about our life. But mostly this blog is about food that my husband (and sometimes I) make and we get to eat (right after I photograph it).

If you’ve never visited their blog then you should drop what you’re doing and head over, right now. The food photos are gorgeous and the writing is superp and witty … Just check out the blog post from their acceptance of the Food Story nomination … It’s hilarious!

See what the other judges had to say about their blog …

Kim – Treats and Trinkets
I really enjoyed the humor and beautiful photography, as well as Yes! Chef!’s yummy looking recipes. I also liked the family stories that gave the blog a really welcoming and homey feel.


Uru – Go Bake Yourself
She writes with so much style, I can almost feel myself being right there in a conversation! I love the concept of her blog being based around her and her husbands cooking. A very enjoyable read :D

  1. I favourite dish is rajma and chawal and my husband like it too. I make it very well and tasty that they always forces me to make this dish for him specially on sunday because it’s a holiday for us. I can make this dish in hardly half an hour at my home. I just enjoy while eating it because it is very delicious. You also have to try this at home. You are definitely going to like it. Thanks for the sharing this post with us.
