What began with nearly 2,000 participants will come down to the selection of one extraordinary food blogger.
At present, Project Food Blog competitors are entering Round 7 which requires them to create an informational food demo video. Previous competitions have consisted of creating nontraditional pizzas to packing picnic lunches and developing instructional food photo tutorials to cooking a classic dish from a different culture.
