Winner of the "best travel and food blog" award from Lonely Planet this year (as well as best travel blog award in the 2008 Weblog Awards) is Kerrin Rousset's My Kugelhopf. Rousset is an ex-pat who travels the world with an an especially sharp eye for sweet treats and cultural trends. She's based in Zürich, so we couldn't think of anyone better to ask for a tip on a great spot to visit in her city:
"I can spend hours at Truffe, a tiny, beautiful chocolate shop in Zürich's Old Town. The owner, Elisabetta, organizes the chocolate by country of origin, and in the back there's a table where you can sit and drink a cup of the city's best hot chocolate or an espresso."
You'll find her tip—along with many others from fresh faces in the travel community—in the October 2009 issue of Budget Travel.
