egulleters, you are a mine of blogging inspiration -- thanks particularly for those sites outside the US/Europe loop, there's some really interesting stuff going on that I'd have missed completely otherwise. Sadly my wordcount means I can't possibly mention everything I'd have liked to, but thanks v much for sharing...

Yep, I guess you're all out of space already but I just had to add some of my favorites.
I would like to add a vote for Amateur Gourmet and also mention another blog called Chubby Hubby that has imo some of the best food photography I've seen on a blog. The blogger is from Singapore and offers a great mix of eating out and cooking at home.

Good luck with the piece and do post a link later if it's available online.

Since I am in L.A., I always stop by

The Delicious Life

and

Eating L.A.

But since I left my heart in San Francisco, I also regularly check out:

The Grub Report

Any other particularly San Francisco oriented food blogs? Especially with restaurant reviews? I want to live vicariously.

I very recently started a food blog of my own after deciding I needed a focus for my blogging:

Gastronomy 101

I also participate in a group blog that's more loosely based around food-related stuff but isn't necessarily limited to food, if we feel the pressing need to post something else:

Survival Art

My favorite is the Vegan lunch box.  Great site.  A very inventive and creative woman posting pics of her child's lunch each day.  Veganlunchbox.com

View Post



does anyone else feel sorry for that kid?

I don't. He seems to really enjoy his food. When I showed my 8yr old neice the foodblog and told her about the lunches his mom makes for him she said " He's really lucky".

This is coming from a child who's parents often give her a lunchable to take to school.

Love the Jon Stewart quote in your sig ... the only reason I even have a blog is because my friends all do, and we all read each other's blogs at work and comment. It really is like passing notes in the classroom.

My new favorite blog is Michael Ruhlman's on Megnut.
Now you should start here and take in every wise word he says!
Then I suppose after you've read that entry 10 or 40 times, you can go to the actual homepage for megnut which includes Ruhlman's musing and some great stuff from bogger/hostess Meg Hourihan.
Thank you for your very kind attention!

I love Joe Pastry . He gives lots of really practical advice, with scientific explanations for how things happen, he debunks myths, and has a sense of humour. A recent week's topic has been on sourdough starters, lots of good stuff there.

I peek at Chocolate and Zucchini every once in awhile. I enjoy the photo albums at Extramsg especially of the farmer's markets and bakeries. The Portland Farmer's Market/2004 Summer Loaf album has a couple of really beautiful loaves of decorative bread in it.

Forget the US. Forget France. Southeast Asia is by far the most fertile ground for interesting foodblogs/foodbloggers in the world. Witness:

Based in Phnom Penh, Phnomenon is undoubtedly the best (and only?) online resource for Khmer food and dining.

Although the pieman is now based in France, thenoodlepie archives are still a fun and interesting source of info on Vietnamese food.

For more on Vietnamese, check out Stickyrice for the scoop on food and dining in Hanoi.

Although she's been in the US for a long time, Pim, of chez pim fame, is actually from Thailand.

Another US-based Southeast Asian foodblogger is the Chinese-Malaysian author of Rasa Malaysia, an excellent blog on Malay eats.

Based out of Malaysia, but definately on top of entire region is EatingAsia.

Among the most popular and successful foodblogs out there is the Singapore-based Chubby Hubby.

Oh, and I do a Thai food blog called RealThai.

Have you seen Lucy Vanel's blog that she does separate from EG? I went there last night it was breathtaking. The prose and the photos are stunning.

I don't know how to link to it so if someone could help me out it would be appreciated.
