Some Food and Beverage Blogs

Take a look at the following food and beverage blogs:

One of my favorites, Kate Hopkins has a food and beverage blog at Accidental Hedonist. In 2004, Kate launched the "Food Blog Awards".

Food and beverage blogs are touted at many websites.

FOODBlog has a comprehensive list of blogs and other food and beverage resources, including coffee links, wine blogs, other drink blogs, Chicago food resources, food blog meta-sites, food forums, food podcasts, food industry links, other food-related sites, non-food related but food named blogs, and (this is quite handy to weed out the blogs) dormant food blogs. Globe correspondent Ethan Gilsdorf points to many of the leading food blogs in his January 12, 2005 article, Food bloggers chronicle their delicious obsessions. Forbes has a list of "Best Food Blogs" by Breckinridge Ely while a Guardian article by Vicky Frost serves us up with The world on your plate, "a taste of the best of the blogs". There are also many articles online on gastronomy.

Here is a small selection of food and beverage blogs on the web.

Chez Pim is the blog of Pim Techamuanvivit, which has been hailed for its restaurant reviews and also contains things like a recent series of postings on the wine harvest in Burgundy by a Burgundian wine maker.

Heidi Swanson, a cookbook collector out of San Francisco, goes into the world of 101 Cookbooks.

Clotilde Dusoulier has a very popular blog in English, Chocolate & Zucchini. Her new book Chocolate & Zucchini: Daily Adventures in a Parisian Kitchen is set to launch soon and can be pre-ordered at Amazon. Vicky Frost at the Guardian lauds Dusoulier's blog for "great photography and inspiring recipes".

Andy Hayler's Food Site contains "notes on restaurants around the world".

Meg Hourihan was cofounder of Pyra, the company behind Blogger before it was purchased by Google. Megnut is Meg Hourihan's site about food.

Amy Sherman's blog Cooking with Amy hails out of San Francisco and focuses on "original food writing providing recipes, restaurant and product reviews, contests, essays and insight into culinary news."

Adam Roberts serves to us the Amateur Gourmet, a blog made instantly famous by CNN, which featured his photo essay on the Janet Jackson breast cupcake.

For those who speak French, Pascale Weeks has a "cuisine best-seller" at C'est moi qui l'ai fait [It is I who made it] - but not available in English.

An interesting site, not a blog but more of a message board "for those who live to eat" is the food and drink community at
