On December 30, Molly Yeh shared some wonderful photos from her Christmas week wedding. Along with her glee at now being able to refer to someone as her “husband.”
And on December 31, Yahoo Food editor Julia Bainbridge anointed Yeh as the site’s “Food Blogger of the Year.” We’ll keep you posted if anything happens today with the Yehs on a similar scale. From Bainbridge’s post:
Yeh is the 25-year-old Chinese-Jewish woman behind “My Name is Yeh,” which she writes from a farm in North Dakota. She studied percussion at The Juilliard School for performing arts in New York City, wound up writing about food, and then wound up moving to the Midwest to be with her then-boyfriend.
… Perhaps the most striking thing about Yeh is her following; a trail of positive energy follows her every digital move. Her readers love her recipes – we have yet to see a critical comment – they love her photographs, and they love her. And that’s now extended to the media.
Within the last year, Yeh has been profiled by Food & Wine magazine, she’s written for Food52 and Condé Nast Traveler, she was tapped to contribute recipes to West Elm’s blog, she spent some time with the New York Times’ Sam Sifton (he traveled to North Dakota to see her), and, of course, she was one of Yahoo Food’s “Bloggers of the Week.”
Congratulations to the happy couple, and we might now have to cook up, for the College Championship final on January 12, a big serving of Yeh’s Cheeto-crusted jalapeño poppers.
