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

Today’s serving of Blogs with Bite:

Over a Tuscan Stove — Judy Witts of Divina Cucina blogs from Florence (Italy, not Alabama). Hat tip: Laura Gordon Giannozzi.

Edible Plants  154 plants rated best for edibility by Plants For A Future (PFAF). Bonus: alternative food crops and nibbles (the PFAF Database Search Page is a bit overwhelming, though).

Evan Rails’ Beer Culture  —  Strong-brewed writing  from the Prague Monitor that will blow the suds off your mug.

Coquinaria— English version of a Dutch Culinary History site. Recipes from Rome to the 19th century; online editions of medieval Dutch cookbooks. Not to be confused with the equally excellent Italian site of the same name.

Food Fights Films, TV, documentaries, pies-in-the-face. Compiled by Mark Morton of Gastronomica.
