Joyous birthday wishes to this beautiful site!

29 September 2003 we were invited to subscribe to C&Z...

for the cyberspace table:

1. glasses sparkling with excitement
2. bottles containing excitement
3. platters of food prepared by those joining the celebration
4. THE chocolate cake Wink
5. 6 candles of beeswax
6. Clotilde 'n the partygoers!

C & Z was the first food blog I read. Actually it was the first blog I read. It inspired me to start my own blog and changed my world. I have met the most wonderful people through my blog (and through C & Z). My world has been enriched by the friendships I've formed. So thank you Clotilde and happy blog anniversary. I'll be raising a glass...and fork to you this evening.

Hi Clotilde, I'm with Barbara, yours is the blog that introduced me to the wonderful world of blogging. I don't know whether I should thank you or not as I seem to spend a lot of time on the computer instead of doing housework (so maybe I should indeed thank you lol). Happy anniversary.

Aww, thank you so much for your kind words! Embarassed

Chocolate & Zucchini has changed my life, too, and my interactions with you all -- readers, bloggers, and fellow cooks -- are the most precious of all the gifts it has brought me.

This anniversary is really ours, so Happy Anniversary to you, too!

Warmly,
Clotilde.

Happy anniversary, Clotilde, both from me (you've given me so many happy hours of reading and cooking since I discovered C&Z a bit over three years ago) and on behalf of everyone I've cooked for from both the website and the book!

Happy Sixth Clotilde and thank you for this amazing place.

If I ever want inspiration for food... I inevitably come here. I also still cook pasta using the Absorption method because of your recipe. And if it weren't for this place... I would never have met Madame and we wouldn't have a blog either. Truly it is written, blog begets blog!

Happy, happy 6th anniversary to Clotilde and to Chocolate and Zucchini.

And Happy 5th anniversary to the Forums.

Both have opened up a whole new world of food and friends to so many of us. Thank you so much Clotilde.

Chocolate and Zucchini is an example of what can go really right with the internet.

Before the internet and C&Z, people who were obsessed with food and cooking had to keep it to themselves if they couldn't find like-minded persons within their families, circle of friends or at work. Now there's a place where we can all go and obsess about food together!

I wonder how long it will be before Clotilde gets an offer to do her own tv show. I imagine it as her interviewing shop owners in and around Paris and then ending it with a cooking segment inspired by the theme ingredient of the show.
