What's your favorite food blog?
I'm a pretty new food blog reader and I haven't found any that really wow me. Ideally, I'd like to regularly read a blog that has recipes, info on new restaurants, trends, chefs, etc, and reports (with photos!) from recent culinary travels.
Thanks in advance for your recommendations.
The one i like the most is crash test kitchen - http://www.crashtestkitchen.com/
It's mostly recipes. They usually have a video accompanied by a blog post. Its a lot of fun.
It's not as well rounded as you might like, but you could try to see if you like it.
I second this recommendation. I regularly consult Elise's blog for her cornucopia of recipes - meat, veggies, and desserts. Her instructions are straight forward and easy to follow. I also regularly turn to her archives for advice on cooking techniques. Even if I'm not going to use a particular recipe, I like to check to see how Elise recommends cooking a particular thing. For instance I successfully cooked a leg of lamb on a charcoal grill thanks to this post:
I'm in Los Angeles, and by far the most useful blog for me is "The Great Taco Hunt," by Bandini. www.tacohunt.blogspot.com. I have tried several of his recommendations, left feedback comments, and have passed on a couple of suggestions to him.
For recipes, or more specifically for cooking techniques, I regularly go to the website for Melinda Lee, who hosts a weekend call-in cooking show on KNX 1070-am. While not a blog, her website has a "recipe archives" and some basic technique explanations, and a good search mechanism. It is www.melindalee.com.
