Blogs With Bite

  Blogs With Bite

Blogs with Bite is an occasional omnivorous sampling of food blogs and websites we find particularly tasty (appetizers are here, here, and here).

Today’s serving of Blogs with Bite:

ObamaFoodorama — “Daily Diary of The Obama Foodscape.” A tossed salad of food policy, recipes, First Family restaurant chatter, and “Chowbama Gossip.” Consume before the Inauguaral Honeymoon is over.

Daily Food Porn —  A short daily recipe with photo from the Internet Food Association , a group of DC foodies better known for other endeavors. The” Daily Food Porn” feature should not be confused with the more graphic:

FoodPornDaily — “Click, drool, repeat.” A sensuous celebration of food photography by Amanda Simpson, Tyler Simpson, and Nicole Hamaker (more on them in future posts). SFW (Safe for Work) but NSFD (Not Safe For Dieters). Both “food porn” sites have their merits; chacun à son goût.

Young and Hungry Tim Carman’s well-written Washington City Paper blog concentrates on DC Metro restaurant reviews and timely gossip, with occasional recipes and food-think. As the title suggests, Y&H reviews many modestly-priced establishments for budget-conscious twenty-somethings, especially handy in these tough times.

Seaweeds Used as Human Food— Got kelp? All the sea veggies in Poseidon’s pantry, annotated by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The aquaculture-obsessed will want to read the complete FAO Fisheries Technical Paper, A guide to the seaweed industry.

Waiter Rant  — Weblog of  Steve Dublanica, author of  the book Waiter Rant: Thanks for the Tip–Confessions of a Cynical Waiter. Would you like a fresh head-smack with this pepper mill, comme ça?

EatFoo — Stylish and entertaining West Coast food blog by David Barzelay. Recipes, kitchen hardware tips, food lore, more.

WiseGeek Food and Cooking — Culinary questions? Look here.

America the Bountiful— A tasteful and satisfying online exhibit about food in American cultural history, directed by Louis Grivetti of the University of California, Davis. The exhibit features artifacts from the Culinary Archives and Museum of Rhode Island’s Johnson and Wales University.

The Liquid Muse— Beverage blog of LA mixologist Natalie Bovis-Nelsen. Cocktails, spirits, eatery reviews. The high-proof blogroll will send you staggering through the bartending blogosphere. Bottoms up!
