Need some good food help!


I'm doing this research project on everything food. I'm writing a script for my screenwriting class and the main hero is a chef... i'm looking for trivia and cool facts to put into his speeches to make him more legitimate.

Can you guys point me to some good sites? I've heard of a blog where this lady puts her daily experiences into recipes and posts these recipes daily... anyone heard of it or have a link?

Thanks I appreciate all the help!

    1. If you read through the posts on the site there are quite a few people who have their own food blogs that are both interesting and informative, also check out to see what is going on in the los angeles food world. And make friends with a chef because the restaurant world is more than just trivia and cool facts, and a chef will be able to help you with the language that's used in a commercial kitchen as well as the driving force behind what makes a restaurant.

        excellent, thank you.

        I'm not just interested in trivia and cool facts, but also the history behind restaurants, the set up of kitchens, why restaurant kitchens are compartmentalized the way that they are...
