I don't know about you, but I read a lot. I am constantly trying to
keep up with my favorite food writers and discover some new ones. I
wanted to share a few favorite blogs with you. Some of them are a bit
more entertaining or visually stimulating while others are just
chock-full of information.
Whole Larder Love - The
tagline for Rohan's blog is "Grow, gather, hunt, cook" and that pretty
much sums it up. Gorgeous photos of the reality of living off the land
and making food for a family. Today, I learned how to kill and cook a pigeon.
Maybe it's my upbringing, but this is one of my favorite blogs right
now. It echoes everything my father taught me about farm life and our
relationship with the land and within the food chain.
Cookin' and Shootin' - Drool, drool, drool, drool. Let me wipe my mouth. I've never wanted to eat my laptop more than right now. These ladies know how to cook and shoot photos of what they're eatin' and temptin' me with.
Tartelette - This
photographer's take on a picturesque meal is always stunning. Suddenly I
absolutely NEED a slate chalkboard to place my candy on for
photographs. (And a few of these blueberry and key lime tea cakes.)
The Kitchn - Not only great photos but solid tips and recipes for a real person's kitchen. Like this how-to for cooking a perfect steak
in the oven. With winter coming around the corner, this is extra
helpful. And you know my passion for Nutella, well, there's Biscoff's
new (Speculoos) cookie spread that is ah-ma-zing. Recipes
for the stuff are turning up everywhere. I'm sure you've had the
cookies on a flight somewhere. I like the Kitchn blog for keeping me in
the loop of every foodie fad that happens.
- I do not have Celiac's disease, but for the most part I'm a meat and
vegetable girl with a lot of sweets thrown in. Karina Allrich is the
best at gluten-free. Her recipes are do-able and delicious. Check out
her Autumn favorites here.
Delicious Days - I find
myself drawn to Nicky's writing and photography if only for her
back-story. She's living in Germany and has worked in the Internet
business. She's transitioned to food writer and photographer and just
really enjoys good food. I see myself in her a little bit. Wanting to
cook for the people I love and share what I make with you all. Her blog
is beautiful and interesting and she's a lot of fun to read. Let me send
you to the recipe archive. It's a good place to get started.
Chocolate & Zucchini
- Clotilde Dusoulier is a Parisian woman who shares her passion for
food with me as if I'm a friend. I have a love/hate relationship with
Paris. I think because the times I've visited it's been solo and it
really is the most romantic city. But the food...oh the food.
There's something about French food which just grabs my soul and coats
it in a warm buttery sauce. Her blog does almost the same thing to me.
Her book, Clotilde's Edible Adventures in Paris, is like a guidebook to goodness.
