Food blogs are an incredible place to find great food advice, cooking how-tos, kitchen gear reviews, food news – and recipes that work in the real world. While some of these blogs focus on recipes and others highlight food news and products, what they have in common is the joy of eating and an appreciation of food and new culinary experiences.
The Dog’s Breakfast
is based on “experiences in what we call the Saturday night test
kitchen, where we try new recipes and experiment with new ingredients.
Sometimes it’s a great success and sometimes it’s a dog’s breakfast,
but in the end we always learn something.” Rob and David cook and live
in Montreal. Sample post: Wild Blueberry and Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta.
Sassy Radish is
written by Olga, who’s from Russia originally but “likes to eat pretty
much everything, particularly sushi, brisket, Indian, Thai and good
Mexican (the latter being rather difficult to locate in New York).
She’s a sucker for things with cilantro, lime and onions and thinks
mashed potatoes is an acceptable answer to a really bad day.” She
introduces readers to dishes from around the world; sample post: Beef Randang–Malaysian Beef Curry.
The Bitten Word Clay and Zach perform a useful service by cooking, then posting about (and often improving), recipes from Bon Appétit, Cook’s Illustrated, and tons of other food mags. They also write about new food experiences with their CSA, canning, and more. Sample post: World Peace Cookies, from Bon Appétit, September 2010.
