If you own a food business, you’ll want to read what food apps our friends at Toque Magazine have named the best for 2012.

Last night 11 food and drink apps were honored in 15 categories during Toque’s 2nd annual Food App Awards. Sara’s Kitchen, an app by Sara Moulton, cookbook author and host of PBS’ Sara’s Weeknight Meals, was awarded Best Overall and won in two other categories. Grocery IQ and Mixologist both garnered two awards as well.

“We saw a lot of new contenders this year,” said Steve Cooper, Toque food app critic and co-organizer of the awards. “All of the entries, even prior to the finalists, revealed a professional level of design and functionality.”

Toque’s panel of judges worked throughout the last three weeks, downloading, testing and evaluating all of the finalists. The apps were judged on design, navigability, usefulness, innovation, value and overall impression.
