   Blogs With Bite

Blogs with Bite is an occasional omnivorous sampling of food blogs and websites we find particularly tasty. Follow the trail of bread crumbs back to earlier editions, starting here.

 Today’s serving of Blogs with Bite:

Food & Think — Amanda Bensen and Hugh Powell blog for the Smithsonian Institution. Science, history, anthropology, and art of food, dining and drinking. Recipes, too.

Junk Food News — Shake hands with the Devil; you can always clean the grease off with a moist towelette.  Observe the awesome industry news feed page; feel the pulsing peristalsis of America’s industrial-culinary complex. You’ll swell with patriotic pride.

Caviar and Codfish — Robin Damstra’s charming food blog. Fine recipes and photos.

Beef Label Decoder — Supermarket survival tool.

Cooking for Engineers —Michael Chu’s cooking site for the analytical mind. Cooking tests, gear and equipment specifications, test recipes, ingredients dictionary, recipe database, and more. The metric cooking measurement converter is right on the homepage.

Picky Eaters: “It’s Too Mushy! It’s Too Spicy! The Peas Are Touching the Chicken!”

Food Gawker — A community of culinary camera clickers, curated by Chuck Lai (of the blog Sunday Nite Dinner). Submit images or just savor them. Serving suggestion: try the Randomizer.

Hunter Angler Gardener Cook — “Finding the Forgotten Feast” with Hank Shaw. Food lore, cooking, and good, strong writing.

Alltop Top Food News— Appetite-stimulating online aggregator. Beyond description.

Operational Rations— The Meal, Ready-To-Eat (MRE) primer of the Defense Logistical Agency. Menu table of all twenty four varieties of meals. Nutrition, shelf-life, accessory packets, serving suggestions. Very exclusive; no sales to the private sector.
