Girl, You Look Good Enough to Eat Awards



The Multi Cultural Cooking Network brings the worlds of food, culture and celebrity together in a unique way.  If internet views were bites, let us say these are the stories our readers have been nibbling on all year long.  This is our 1st Annual You Look Good Enough to Eat Awards. What does the expression really mean? Are you simply appetizing or is there something comforting to your appeal like red velvet cake or flan?

The MCCN list consists of beautiful women whose articles or video interviews have generated the most views on MCCN home-site, blog or Multiculturalcooking at You Tube Channel. The Multi Cultural Cooking Network has a really diverse demographic.  Like anything there will always be a majority.  In our case the majority demographic is Latin American but to say Latino means consisting of several different cultures.  With that said it is exciting to see a range of complexions embody beauty and peak the public’s curiosity to know more about them.  It is wonderful to see women in their twenties to past their forties considered eye candy.  Moreover, they are dynamic. We are really proud to see Latinas, African American, American, Women of European heritage, Middle Eastern, Asian and Native American groups represented.  Honorable Mention to Kate Walsh, Sheila E, Sharon Leal and Cheryl Burke were short of making the list. Oh and Angelina Jolie up there, we had to put someone appetizing up who didn’t make our list to catch you attention.

Her official fan website describes Rodriguez as a cross of beauty and brawn. As far as social cause, Rodriguez is involved in an effort against illegal whaling:
