The Norwegian American’s Nevada Berg wins prestigious blog award
A big congratulations is due to our Taste of Norway contributor Nevada Berg. Her blog, North Wild Kitchen (www.northwildkitchen.com), won the Editors’ Choice for Best New Voice and also Blog of the Year at the seventh annual SAVEUR Blog Awards in New York in September.
Based in Numedal, Norway, Berg began her blog a year ago and has been contributing to The Norwegian American since April. She won the awards out of more than 30,000 blogs nominated.
“I am just really proud that I am able to represent Norwegian food culture and connect the reader to a more holistic Norway, whether by the history of a dish or the landscape or the traditions that are embedded into the culture,” Berg told us in an email from Norway. “It is also really exciting and motivating to see that a blog about traditional Norwegian cuisine is able to be recognized on the same level as other world cuisines.”
Berg is taking some time off from writing for The Norwegian American as she works on some projects.
“There are many exciting opportunities on the horizon right now. Among other things, I will continue sharing traditional and inspired Norwegian recipes on the blog and feature stories about local producers and home cooks who share their knowledge and techniques,” she says. “Next year, I will also be offering food experience packages and cooking courses so people can experience Norwegian cooking firsthand.”
Congratulations again, Nevada! We look forward to seeing what you do next.
