Reflecting back on 2013, I did partake in some amazing meals, travels and learn some new favourite recipes.

Along with that Accidental Epicurean won some awards, namely the blog to watch by the UK site 101 Holidays, and Accidental Epicurean also reached #49 rank worldwide for all food blogs, and it was nominated for some blogging awards…didn’t win, but as they say in Hollywood, it’s an honour to be nominated 😉  Not bad if I say so myself….

Here’s some of our favourite posts of 2013 for you to enjoy / re-enjoy – happy new year and happy eating.
