We love it when sites we dig do extra-smart stuff, so we were thrilled when our pals at Chow.com offered us a sneak preview of the 2011 edition of The Chow 13, going live tonight.

Last year, the site honored sumptuously profane Twittervixen Ruth Bourdain, heirloom vegetable evangelist Chef Sean Brock, and bad-ass Brooklyn butcher Tom Mylan.

This year's list will post later today, but we're thrilled to announce that our friend Eddie Huang has made the cut this year. He's co-hosted one of our Secret Suppers and graced the pages of Eatocracy with musings on cultural identity, food writers, late-night meals, Four Loko, Tiger Moms and lessons learned from a zero-star New York Times review.

Here's why Chow digs Eddie Huang as a chef using social media smartly:

Sure, most SXSW parties have free swag, loud music and throngs of people pecking at their phones to check in on Foursquare or Gowalla.

But how many have giant sculptures of famous viral-video cats, molded from 50 pounds of cheese?

Tweetjemee: A home-cooked meal every night

Get a home-cooked meal any night of the week – if you live in the Netherlands, that is.

Tweetjemee is a website for those who cook and those who eat (read: everyone). Home cooks can make whatever and however much they want and then sell the fruits of their labor online.

The "chef" decides the meal, price and pick-up time, turning his or her kitchen into a “webtaurant.” Sometimes diners are invited into the chef’s house to enjoy the meal in the comfort of their kitchen.

We love it when sites we dig do extra-smart stuff, so we were thrilled when our pals at Chow.com offered us a sneak preview of a few honorees in the latest edition of The Chow 13, going live tonight.

Last year, the site gave shout outs to a smörgåsbord of food luminaries like the Kogi Truck's Roy Choi and Crack Pie purveyor Momofuku Milk Bar's Christina Tosi.

2010 honorees include sumptuously profane Twittervixen Ruth Bourdain, heirloom vegetable evangelist Chef Sean Brock, and bad-ass Brooklyn butcher Tom Mylan.

Snack on that and let the guessing games begin. We'll share the link as soon it hits our grubby little paws.
