I follow @offalchris, Michael Voltaggio, michel symon, alton bron, ferran adria, jose andres,eric ripert, noreservations(anthony bourdain). what about you
To name a few.
a host of food blogger friends and because I live in LA, thefoodtrucker.
I'm not now nor will likely ever be on FB.
Eric Ripert - hilarious when he's bickering with Anthony Bourdain
Mario Batali - he tweets about where he's eating in real time
Marc Forgione, Alex Stupak - for new dishes in their constantly changing menus
Eater NY - for the latest in restaurant gossip
I basically follow all of my favorite restaurants and food trucks on Twitter and Facebook. I don't usually follow food critics (except for ex food critics like Frank Bruni and Ruth Reichl) or magazines.
A lot of the ones I cover are already listed, like Alton Brown, Eric Ripert, Anthony Bourdain, Ruth Bourdain. Here are a few more:
Michael Ruhlman @ruhlman - lots of good inspiration
Eric Asimov @ericasimov
Jeff Houck @jeffhouck - a local food writer, really like his Weekend Eats
@culinarypirate - also a local food and drink writer
Several local restaurants - I love Twitter for this. Several of my favorite restaurants tweet daily specials, new wines and beer added to menu, special events, etc.
Let me pull up Twitter and see what we have.
