What's the BEST cooking site?
I'm looking for a great cooking website. Let me know what you think are the best ones. Thanks
Although I'm sure there are plenty of other great sites, I usually go back and forth between two: CooksIllustrated.com and epicurious.com. Cook's Illustrated requires a paid subscription (approx. $20 a year), but I consider them to be the true experts since they test all of their tips and recipes multiple times and with a variety of twists before publishing them. As a research scientist, I find this to be important, but I could see where it may be less important to others.
I go to Epicurious if I don't find the recipe I'm looking for on Cooks Illustrated. This is the recipe-posting site for Gourmet and Bon Appetit among others. I have tried hundreds of recipes from there and have adopted many as staples, frequently with the addition of variations that were suggested by reviewers.
In the rare instance that neither of these provide the recipes I'm searching for, my default is good ole' Google.
cooking site = recipes?
For a free site, I like allrecipes.com. Lots of recipes and the registered users rate the recipes.
I do subscribe to Cook's Illustrated online which isn't bad.
I recently stumbled upon Fine Cooking. They are a pay site (not a subscriber), but have some free recipes.
I also look for recipes on the Food Network website. The one downside of the Food Network website is that it's soooooo slow.
