Best Food Websites

  • d

I am wondering whether anyone can point me in the direction of some especially cool food-related websites, hopefully with links included. I'll get the ball rolling by throwing in the JB Prince site (www.jbprince.com)-- the best shopping site I know.

      The Curry House website is indeed pretty cool. Thanks. I would never have stumbled upon this one myself.

    2. Here's what I have bookmarked under "food" on my laptop:

      www.8legged.com - cooking lessons from an animated octopus

      www.christmas-cookies.com - great cookie recipes

      www.lileks.com/institute/gallery/inde... - Gallery of Regretable Food

      http://www.goodeatsfanpage.com/GEFP/i... - Good Eats fan site

      http://www.caloriecountercharts.com/c... - A good calorie and nutritional chart

      http://mahabazaar.com/ - a really good online Indian grocery store. I've had great luck with them.

      1. Nancy -- the Gallery of Regrettable Food is hilarious. Thanks. Here's a more serious website that I love: a recipe archive from Michelin two-star chef Raymond Blanc. There's enough here to keep a very ambitious home cook occupied for the rest of his or her life.

          Am I missing where the link is? ;o)

        2. I just have www.outlawcook.com, chowhound, and foodmaven.com. Not very interesting, but I'm increasing my food links collection slowly. I have to really like a site to bookmark it.

          1. davidlebovitz.com has a really good recipe archive. He used to be the pastry chef at Chez Panisse and now runs tours of pastry shops in Paris.

              BBC Radio 4's The Food Programme

              A Chef's Table with Jim Coleman

              All About Food with Jean Feraca (Wisconsin Public Radio

              1. sautewednesday.com is an extensive listing of many things food related....links to all the major newspaper food sections across the country, food magazines, the science of food, international food pages, authors, on and on......you can spend hours here....
