Best of Gourmantic 2009

Since its inception six months ago on 26 July 2009, 95 articles have been published on showcasing a variety of travel, food, drink, restaurant reviews, photographs, music and opinion pieces. Today, as the decade comes to a close and the dawn of ‘twenty-ten’ is mere hours away, it is time to look back at the articles and achievements to date.

Content and aesthetics complement one another like a glass of Sauternes is to foie gras. In recent days, the site has undergone a minor cosmetic layout change on the front page and there have been minor tweaks all along. We are continuously seeking improvements in this space which we consider to be our permanent holiday home. While it’s a good idea to reflect on the brief history of Gourmantic, we also have plans to move the site forward. Drawing on our combined travel and food experiences in various destinations and the recent intensive trip in October-November of 2009, we are excited about sharing our travel and culinary adventures.

To find out more about us, you can visit the About and FAQ pages. Places We’ve Been and Gourmantic Living are the pages where we outline our food and travel wish lists and those we have achieved to date. You can subscribe to your RSS feeds or use the form in the sidebar to subscribe to our updates by email. You can also find us on Twitter, Facebook, Urbanspoon, Foodbuzz, Travel Blog Exchange, YouTube where we look forward to connecting with you.

From both of us here at Gourmantic, we wish you a fabulous and delicious 2010. Happy New Year!
