what other food sites do you frequent?

I hop among several all the time. Each has plus/minus aspects. Two of the ones I USED to go to have dropped their forums and have gone to facebook?!? Not a big FB user at all, and what's there seems to be a mish-mash of stuff.

Where to you go, other than here?

    1. re: c oliver

      Seriouseats.com & food.com are places that have recently done away with forums.

    2. None. I used to hang on Epicurious years ago, but haven't hit that one in eons.

      During an enforced hiatus from Chowhound (how's that for a euphemism...?) I looked and couldn't find any where the conversations are as good as they are here.

      Most of the others are either utter free-for-alls, so tightly modded that they're purely academic, or they're high-falutin' folks who are wayyy to impressed with their own abilities to buy the most expensive stuff out there (OMG you mean she put storebought ITALIAN olive oil on her PAELLA? WTF? My 6-year-old knows that you should use organic cold-pressed from a hand-turned stone!!)

        1. re: phatchris

          I read SE but do they have a forum for questions, etc.?

        2. Lthforum.com, which is an excellent source for Chicago area restaurant and food-related info. (I just lurk there but there are many Chicago hounds who also post on lth, generally under the same screen names.)

          1. eGullet, Cook's Issues, gardenweb.

              Had never heard of Cook's Issues. Gee, thanks, I just spent over an hour there. Found it hilarious, since I'm not a scientist. Fun site, though, especially if Sheldon & friends were 'hounds.

                Oh wow, I'd completely forgotten about cookingissues.com. I remember reading their site for a while to follow the 'how to clarify lime juice' saga.
