I've been enjoying many of the food related blogs that are out there. I have posted links to many of them, and if you scroll down on any of those blogs, you will find links to their favorites! It just goes on and on! Anyway, I thought I would pick several to feature here, giving you an opportunity to check them out.
I have an assorted list for you....some cooking, some photography, a few on interior design. My favorites are those that discuss my favorite subjects while showing some wonderful photography.
I think the best of all of them is Smitten Kitchen, written and posted by Deb Perelman of New York City. Deb is a freelance writer and photographer, focusing much of her work on food. She has a tiny little son and a great way of telling a story. If you wish to check out Smitten Kitchen, go to http://smittenkitchen.com/
Next I have to list Over a Tuscan Stove, written by my friend Judy Witts Francini of Tuscany. I've blogged about Judy many times. She is a friend, a wonderful culinary tour guide in Italy, and an amazing chef. go to www.divinacucina-blog.com/
There are quite a few professional blogs, posted by companies, that I truly enjoy. The two that I find most reliable and useful are Martha Stewart's, www.TheMarthaBlog.com and King Arthur's Flour
at kingarthurflour.com/blog Both of these blogs are great sources for recipes, research, as well as equipment, ingredients, etc. If I had to suddenly go back into a professional kitchen and declare myself as a particular type of chef, I'd have to say I was a baker. King Arthur has a team of bakers who spend their days answering questions, explaining techniques, offering advice. It is a very handy service.
Moving out of the kitchen and into the dining room, I love the blog called Once Upon a Plate. onceuponaplate.blogspot.com Beautiful table settings, centerpieces and some fun recipes. I've always had a facination with antique dinnerware and silver. Mari writes about these things I love, but more importantly, her photographs are wonderful!
I find myself admiring these cooks who remember to take photographs while cooking. At my age, I'm doing my best to remember to add all of the ingredients! Don't get me started on aging! Or automobiles....but that is a story for another time.
Hope you enjoy the blogs!
