Mine is about a month old and is a good example of how an enthusiastic home cook moves from recipe cooking to creating his or her personal cuisine.

I've been happy with Typepad.

Comments welcome.

Cheers.

Nordljus. Some of the best photography I have seen. Not the most prolific blog, but more than makes up for it with stunning photography.

Hullo eGulleters

No more lurking about for me -- I've been forced out into the open by the need for help.

I'm writing a feature about the best food blogs in the world ... ever (or along those lines) and am looking for recommendations. Of course, eGullet blogs are toppermost of the poppermost, but what other blogs are so delicious they make you drool into your keyboard?

Slightly off topic, but...

I'm a big fan of the seemingly hundreds of food blogs based out of S.E. Asia (why is that region so food crazy--or more specifically, food crazy and prone to documenting the mania) Chubby Hubby, Babe in KL, Umami, Masak Masak, noodlepie, HK Foodie, Pinoy Cook, etc.

My question is--are there similar blogs based out of Spain? I ask because while visiting S.E. Asia I was armed with amazing knowledge I'd gleaned from blogs. This summer I'm going to Barcelona (just briefly) but feel less wise about the cuisine, trendy and revered as it is.

-------------------

Self-promotion part: I've been blogging (ok, they didn't call it blogging pre-2000)for what feels like a million years and not too long ago morphed my personal site into a food blog. Well, I ended up morphing it back and now just write about food alot because I don't know if the world can sustain another food blog. At least not mine:

Don't forget Heidi Swanson's 101 Cookbooks. I think it' smuch more than a blog but she's been a real pioneer and now has a great book out and writes everywhere. She really is the poster child for what's good about blogging.

I do notice many bloggers start out great and then peter out. I think that's why there are professional writers and traditional press still.

Ah...I discovered this one through the Spain & Portugal board (where my question is probably better suited). He (I'm assuming it's a he) should post more. I like seeing/reading what locals have to say about food.

I want to put in a good word for mmm-yoso!, the blog of my fellow San Diego-based food fiend Kirk. According to the blog's one-line description: "An Ex-Pat Kama'aina explores food in San Diego and points beyond." The thoroughness and humor with which he does that is really delightful--not to mention really helpful. And he specializes in a lot of my favorite kinds of places: little hole-in-the-wall mom'n'pop joints, especially anyplace serving Asian foods or Hawaiian plate lunch.

Orangette because her recipes always work for me.

Noodlepie because it reminds me of fine days on the mean streets of Saigon.

And, last but not least, Scent of Green Bananas from Santos who blogs from a small but gorgeous island in the Western Pacific and the Philippines. Look for her shots of the produce found in Filipino markets.

There are two types of food blogs for me, the kind that are people sharing their thoughts and images about food and food in their lives, and then there are the ones that are meant to inspire me to do more with my own food photography and writing. Some food bloggers also have blogs that deal with the technical and aesthetic issues of food blogging.

There's one I check often to see if she's got something new up - Still Life With. It's a blog entirely about food photography with some really interesting information that she's putting up regularly. One thing I love about this blog is that it is full of tips for someone working at home and technical stuff I've never even thought of.

When I decided to start my own blog for my friends and family at the beginning of this year, I signed up at the Food Blog S'cool which is run by Sam at Becks & Posh and there have gotten feedback and help from other members on technical issues. There is a lot of giving going on there. I like that. :smile:

My apologies for self-horn tooting and the current lack of pornographic food pix, but my blog Tripe Soup offers the perspective of a food writer struggling to make a place in the culinary literary world.
