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

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.

I really like this one.

Barcelona based blog:

Silly Disciple

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.

Meg Hourihan, on of the founders of Blogger and so one of the inventors of all blogs, has rededicated her weblog as a food blog, and intends do devote herself to food blogging full time.

Megnut

I occasionally write about food :biggrin:

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.

No one really seemed to comment much on beverage sites, but here's one (okay, it's mine):

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?

ta v much

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.

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

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.
