Food Fetish Friday 10/17/2012

Girlichef: Pumpkin Doughnuts w/ Spiced Buttermilk Glaze

Food that inspires, shocks, intimidates and leaves one trembling with envy and desire - it's what I call Fetish Worthy food. What is Food Fetish Friday?

Welcome Back

After a month-long hiatus, Food Fetish Friday is finally back - bigger photos and even better promotion of your incredible creations! I've received so many supportive emails and messages regarding the series and I really appreciate all the kind words. If you're wondering what happened to Food Fetish Friday, you can catch up by reading this previous post.

Over the next couple of months, I will be restoring access to all previous Food Fetish Friday posts as I complete fixes to the series. I have already restored access to previous Featured Foodie posts (for those Foodies I have received photo authorization from); for now, the Featured Foodies section is on hold until I have completed fixes to the remainder of the series.

Thank you all for your support and patience and I hope you enjoy today's collection of mouth-watering creations! Welcome back to Food Fetish Friday!
