A Spicy Perspective

Amazing Food Blogs

Amazing Food Blogs

I recently read an article that attacked the food blog community, stating that it is a threat to the well-being of “real” food professionals. I won’t bore you with the angry onslaught, yet let me say this…

An irrational claim against a group as a whole, is a dangerously muddled cocktail of vanity and fear.

If culinary journalism can be taken down by a group of food enthusiasts, then I say it’s a pretty shoddy industry to begin with.

Best Food Blogs

We food bloggers are a sorted lot.

Some of us blog as a hobby, after a long day at work. Some of us have managed to turn our passion into a home-based business. Some are talented photographers that blog about food because they love to shoot the things they eat. Some are chefs or extraordinary home-cooks that have had to learn how to use a camera. Some of us write about travel and restaurants. Many spend countless hours developing recipes, photographing meals before letting anyone touch them, writing long thought-provoking pieces, or short funny blurbs. Not to mention the time we spend spreading the word about our latest dish.

The point is, food bloggers are as different as our blogs, but we are all passionate about food. No one in their right mind would spend this unthinkable amount of time obsessing over it, without passion.

Many of us feel this is our contribution to humanity.

I’ll never win the Noble Prize, or find a cure for cancer, but if I can help someone across the country confidently create a sensational dinner, that brings smiles to their family, I’m a happy girl.

Awesome Food Blogs

So I want to celebrate the food blogging community.

You provide steaming-hot inspiration to the home cook, and fresh weekly waves to the web surfer. I love you for it!

Today I’ve put together my very own blog crawl.  Some of these sites display incredibly elegant food photography, others tired-and-true easy-to-follow recipes, still others great personality and fun reads.

All of these offer something unique and are worth your time. …And in my mind, only improve the culinary community and industry.

Let’s read them, shall we?

  1. Thanks Sommer for sharing this beautiful blogs.Keep posting.

  2. That’s really amazing.. Thanks for providing such great and useful list of Food Blogs! :)

  3. I’m actually a supertaster, so I can’t eat anything that isn’t licking the salt off the top of saltines; will this recipe work for me?

  4. Just seeing this- thank you for posting. you’ve read my mind as I have delved into the food blogging world recently and needed to hear this. You’re awesome!

  5. Everything you said is just perfect. I cannot imagine a better way to express how I feel about my job as a food blogger, and especially how upset it makes me when people act as though it’s not a “real job” that requires dedication, time, effort, and talent. Food bloggers are so often criticized, and there is a serious stigma surrounding food blogging that I still can’t understand. The point is to help people create something they will enjoy, just like we enjoy it… what could possibly be so dreadful about that?

    I’m looking through the links you’ve posted now and am definitely excited to follow some new blogs!

  6. I’m late… like 5 months late. How this post slipped through the cracks I’ll never know! Thank you Sommer for including me on your long list of wonderful blogs! You rock my friend!

  7. Pingback: Running Tip 39 | fromthecouchto5k.com

  8. Thanks so much for including me Sommer! I’m a little late commenting (I’ve been in newborn baby mode all summer…) but I agree. Food blogging is not only enriching the food community, but the internet as a whole! Bravo, my dear, and blog on everyone!

  9. Amazing list and I am so shocked at those finger-pointing. Thanks for supporting the blogging community, Sommer :)

  10. What a fabulous resource, Sommer!!! I think the food blogging community has only elevated the appreciation of food as a whole. I know that I am in awe of the gorgeous photography and creative recipes I find on the food blogs I frequent. They inspire me to be a better cook and also to be a better photographer. :-)

  11. I don’t know how I missed this post!!!! Caught it while catching up on Facebook! I am honored that you included me in your list! You put a big ol’ fat smile on my face!!!

  12. Sommer, Thank you so much for writing this post. The article you speak of made me angry as well and I’ve been fuming about it wanting to respond but not quite feeling able to calmly put it into words. You’ve done if perfectly, persuasively and beautifully, with sincerity and passion. You rock!
    Christine
    (And thank you for including me in your list. I am beyond humbled to be mentioned alongside such a brilliant group of talented members of our community.)

  13. This is the best!! I wish more people would speak out like you just did. I too believe bloggers come from different perspectives, and there’s room in this culinary/journalistic world for all of our voices. The nastiness should stop. :)

  14. Great Post … Thx for the list :-)

  15. A very thoughtful post, Sommer. You were one of the first friends I made through my blogging hobby;) I truly aprpeciate you linking me with all these other great sites. There are so many on your list I need to check out and also on Kate’s list. The food blogging community constantly inspired me. Thanks for keeping it real, as always.xx

  16. What a great list! I need to work my way through all of these blogs. I think sometimes food “professionals” get frustrated that trends are being led by bloggers. I say, there’s room in the food world for everyone, so no need to complain!

  17. I know exactly of which article you speak, and it ruffled my feathers a bit too! It was such a gross stereotype and underscored the many talented bloggers out there! This is indeed a fabulous round-up! Off to check out a few that I’ve never heard of before…

  18. I was checking my stats this morning and see traffic coming from you…pop over here only to have my entire day made to be included on such an amazing list of talent. Thank you so much for that! As for the article, I read it too and was shocked that she wrote it. She seems scared to lose her livelihood which is understandable…but people don’t only get their recipes from a handful of $6 magazines anymore. Hop on the wave or get washed under. :)

    Thank you again for including me.
    xo
    Heather

  19. Gracias Sommer for the great list…I read the article you mentioned and was shocked to say the least. Thanks for bringing to light the idea that some of us blog because we really do LOVE to cook, share what we made with those we love and somewhere along the way others enjoy that we share some of our family recipes too. Have a great weekend!

  20. it is a stellar group indeed.

  21. How is Annie’s Eats not on this list?! :) Her photography is amazing and her site is one of my go to’s for recipes. Love her.

    Going to look at this list all day.

    • Ashley, That IS a good one!! I knew when I was writing this, I was going to forget some really good sites. I’ll have to do another blog crawl later with more fabulous blogs. :)

  22. Aww, thanks for adding my Sommer :) Enjoy your weekend!

  23. Sommer what a great list of bloggers!!! So many I already love and many new ones to browse, thanks for taking the time to put together such a food lovers dream list!!

    vianney

  24. This is one super list, and, as you already acknowledged, very difficult to make “complete.” Just as people blog for different reasons, we visit other blogs for the same reasons. Some I visit because I know I’ll always find a great, unique recipe. Some, for the great story-telling. Others for the inspiring photography. Some because, well, just they’ve become friends. I believe we’re very lucky to have so many options — both for expression and for consumption. The food blogging community has become staunch competition for traditional media — and I , for one, think competition makes everything better!

  25. What a nice thing to do. Well Said!

  26. Wow! What a great list!! Thanks for including us!

  27. Great post, Sommer! There are so many perspectives in the world of food blogging, and in my opinion, that’s one of the things that makes it so wonderful. I am familiar with many of the sites on your list, but I look forward to checking out the ones that are new to me. I’m a newer blogger myself, but I share the passion that you and so many commenters have touched on. Cheers!

  28. Just saw your comment in a very old post of mine and am cursing my feed for not mentioning your blog in it for such a long time….amazing list of foodies..time I revamp my list again..will start from your roll :)
    Warm hugs.

  29. Great list! I’m familiar with so many of these…. but so, so many are new to me! Can’t wait to dig in. On the rant against food bloggers… a friend of mine who is in publishing says they are the future — it is now imperative to be able to combine your talent for writing or cooking with superb digital media skills

  30. fabulous list and celebration of talented bloggers! Definitely found some new reads :)

  31. Terrific list with some lovely familiar names! Definitely bookmarking this post. Many thanks for including Zomppa as well :). Have a great weekend!

  32. Hi Sommer

    Thank you so much for adding me to such an impressive group of food bloggers, it reads like a whose who of the food blogging world! Hope all is well with you and your family in beautiful Asheville, I’m going to miss coming down this year…….please say hi to Lt. Dan for me

    Cheers
    Dennis

  33. Today was one of those days where my blog really put me through the wringer. How lovely to read your post, just as I was about to turn the computer off and call it a day. Thank you so much for writing what I know is true and good, and for including me in your list. I appreciate it bunches! :)

  34. I’m a culinary-trained chef who follows many food blogs. I can’t wait to add to my list from your list. There’s inspiration everywhere.

  35. Some of my favorites on this list – what an honor to be included in such amazing company. Food lovers take over the world!! =)

  36. Great post, Sommer. Clearly you put so much thought and energy into it and it really shows! Thanks for the expansive food blogger list too, can’t wait to hit up some of the blogs I didn’t know about!

  37. Love this list and all the blogs it includes. Thanks for putting it together, Sommer!

  38. Thanks Everyone, for your kind responses!

    While writing this post I felt like the unprepared-underdog winning the Grammy–at the moment that counts, they can’t remember who to thank. Even now I’m thinking of blogs I should have included. There are SO MANY wonderful sites.

    We food bloggers are a powerful force of talent and insight. I think what separates us most from traditional food journalist (proved in the said anti-blogger article) is that we don’t tend to be elitists or snotty about food. We make food, and ourselves, accessible to everyone.

    From an educational perspective, That’s not considered “dumbing down.” It’s called being good teachers.

    Not that you don’t see this is traditional food media. There are certain publications and journalists, that do a phenomenal job making food accessible to all. But those that are feeling threatened by bloggers, might need to reconsider that old-school nose-in-the-air attitude about food.

  39. Thanks for sharing all these amazing blogs :) Can’t wait to explore more that I don’t know about!

  40. Truly an amazing post and it’s so spot on. I’m honored to have been included in this list and for you to have thought of me. I’ll have to spend some time hopping around to those I am unfamiliar with. :)

  41. Gret post. I couldn’t agree more. Most of us, myself included have a passion for food, photography and wanting to leave our footprint somewhere. Like you, I know I’m not going to win the Nobel Prize or find a cure for cancer but if I can inspire someone with the love of cooking than I’m happy.

  42. That’s a one-stop for anyone trying to find their way around the food blogging community.
    I should admit that when I wasn’t blogging, I could not fathom the amount of effort and preparation that goes in to put up a single post. It’s only after I have started blogging that I can see and appreciate that effort so much more! It has to be the passion for food that keeps us going!

  43. Inspirational words, Sommer. And I completely agree! A wonderful way to celebrate the food bloggers community. Cheers!

    Hugs <3

  44. This is the most dignified response by celebrating the community in such a fantastic and touching way. Was so honored to see my name included. Many thanks! Shulie

  45. Love the sentiment behind this post, and so honored to be mentioned. xoxo

  46. Lovely photos, Sommer and what you’ve said is spot on! Thanks for putting this terrific list together and I’m honored you’ve included me in the mix. I think the best response to the original post by said food journalist (I read both her piece as well as Julie’s thoughtful response) is to keep creating quality content, be willing to constantly grow in our respective mediums, and to know that writing is writing no matter what.

  47. I love food blotters! I no longer buy cooking magazines. I subscribe to most of these but you missed one that I enjoy:from the little yellow kitchen. Thanks for the list.

  48. I can’t thank you enough for highlighting this amazing short list of fabulous blogs. Each one is unique, and are as diverse as chalk and cheese [now there’s a good name for a blog ! haha]; each one is created and written by a passionate individual who has a voice to be heard. It is our choice to listen. Sounds to me like ‘someone’ feels somewhat threatened by the wealth of knowledge and inspiration that has become the backbone of our food blogging community. I just started my own blog 3 weeks ago, and am in awe of the dedication and commitment that I have encountered in my travels through the food blogging world. If I can aspire to a fraction of the talent I have come across, then I will have achieved my goal ! I started following your blog before I started my own, and it is people like you who inspired me to take the leap…..Thank you for your voice !!!

    • You’re one of my go-to’s for photo inspiration! Thank you for the stunning list and including me on it! And I’m so impressed that in this world of blogging that can be so intimidating to dip our toes into as a newcomer, people like Mary are joining in the fray and being inspired by the list above. Welcome to the party Mary! And thank you again for featuring so many amazing talents Sommer, including yourself! XO

      • I must say….I am tickled pink that my comment was actually read by another reader, and it actually meant something !! Hello Heidi, so pleased to meet you ! I’m in overdrive now and totally committed to this exciting journey ! I am still in ‘kindergarten’ and currently re-constructing my blog….it sure is a process and a learning experience, but tonight I’m going to sleep with a huge grin on my face because I have been made to feel welcome ! Thank you….

  49. Well put! Thanks for including me – I’m honored!

  50. The list is too long :) Can you pick your top 10? My inbox is already filling up way too quickly with many awesome blogs. I’m reading a good chunk of these.

    • Uhhhh, 10? Haha, probably not. There’s just too many good ones. Even now I am remembering a few I forgot to mention.

  51. Well said! Everyone’s voice deserves to be heard. Thanks for including me! I look forward to checking out some of the blogs I’m not familiar with.

  52. Aw, thank you Sommer!!! :)

  53. This just made my day! So sweet of you to include me in this list!! Thank you. :)

  54. Well said, thank you for putting that wonderful list together!

  55. What a wonderful list, Sommer, and I love the black and white photos, especially the sprouts. Thanks for the lovely post. It’s nice to see the light in the storm.

  56. What a WONDERFUL post, (and not just because you included me :) I really do think the food blogging community has a lot to offer! I almost thought the article was written to get bloggers in an uproar, you know planned out that way-but with those opinions maybe I’m giving too much credit, LOL!
    I can’t wait to get to know some of the bloggers on your list that are new to me!

  57. Bravo!! This is such an excellant post! I have tried so many diffirent hobbies and I never found anything that I wanted to stay with or that I was passionate about, until my first view on my blog. I found that the food blogging community and the readers are probably one of the most nicest communities to belong to. There are no cut throat food bloggers that try to compete with you, no one slamming the recipes you make, just a community of people who loves food. This is one community that I have been a part of for almost a year and this is the happiest I ever been in my life. I found a passion for something I believe in. As the same as you, I may not win the noble peace prize but showing someone how to make something that they can share with there friends and family makes me feel good and whats even better when someone comments back and tells me my recipe was great or you showed how to make the perfect omelet. That is the best feeling you can get! So I don’t care what the world says about food bloggers, I think we are the best and this is one community I would never want to leave!

    Sommer, thank you for this post and thank you for putting me on your list!

  58. This is an awesome list of foodies…can’t wait to check out some new ones:-)

  59. TOTALLY agree. There is SO MUCH culinary talent around the world. Maybe the “big chefs” SHOULD be intimidated! There is always something FRESH and NEW on blogs, and as someone always looking for something new, I absolutely appreciate the bloggers who consistently deliver just that. THANK YOU ALL.

  60. What a great post and a fabulous group of bloggers!

  61. Great list! I’m bookmarking this because I definitely see a few new ones here to check out! I don’t care what anyone thinks. We ARE part of the food industry. People are afraid of change.

  62. Wow!!! I am going to have so much fun crawling through all of these fab blogs. Doing my finger exercises now ;D Thank you so much for including me in such talented list of foodies. xoxo

  63. From a non-blogger, thanks for writing this – the individual who wrote the original article obviously has to be somewhere low down on the totem pole of “professionals” to be afraid and intimidated by what all these wonderful bloggers accomplish. I have read a good number of the blogs and will now have more to add to the pleasure they give me, the recipes I have tried and enjoyed and the feeling that at 90 I am still in the thick of things. All you wonderful women, keep up the good work and know that it is really appreciated.

  64. Thank you, Sommer, for standing up for all. I am not a food blogger, even though I have had a desire to do so for quite some time, but there is nothing I would rather do than spend awhile online looking at all of “your” sites and wondering which one I should try first. You said what you needed to say so eloquently!

  65. Totally. Agree! Mwah! A great list Sommer, thanks so much for including me xoxo

  66. I am grinning ear to ear! I don’t feel like I belong with all these rock stars! Thank you! And what an awesome list!

  67. I think that food blogging has been a benefit to the food industry as a whole and not the other way around. Sounds to me like sour grapes for whoever wrote that article.

  68. Very well said! I read a lot of these blogs and love the food blogging community. Thanks Sommer!

  69. What a fantastic list! I love so many of these blogs, and can’t wait to fall for some of the ones I don’t quite recognize yet. Thanks Sommer!

  70. I LOVE this post! Everything you stated was so well thought out and very eloquently stated. I couldn’t agree with you more. The most important thing to remember is food blogging is a creative art and the reader can do with food posts as they please. Thank you so much for adding me to your list of blogs to check out – I’m flattered and I absolutely adore your blog. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  71. Well said, Sommer. We’re all driven by our passion for food and all of us have something unique to offer. Thanks for your list–have a few blogs that I need to check out! Thanks also for including me in it–I’m honored! :)

  72. So well said! Thank you for including me on that list:-)

  73. Well said, I couldn’t agree more! What a great post :)

    There are some new-to-me blogs on your list that I am eager to check out. Thank you for including me!

  74. Sommer – what a well written and articulated post that expresses what so many of us think. You are a talent in so many ways, and I agree that we each have our own gifts that we express through our blogs. I am honored to be included in your list.

  75. Hip-Hip-Hooray! I agree with you 100%, Sommer. Thank you for writing this piece and for including me in that list! =)

  76. I was shocked that anyone could ‘dis’ the food blogging community which is an AMAZING group of bloggers!! I loved reading through your list, and follow most of these blogs. Can’t wait to see if I can find a few new ones. Thanks for sharing!! ;)

  77. What a great looking list! Some of my faves. I can’t wait to pick through them all.
    Glad I came across this on Pinterest.

  78. This is a great post, Sommer and I completely agree with your sentiments. I’m honored to be included on your list!

  79. Beautifully written, and perfectly said!! *raising my glass* to you Sommer!!

    and I’m humbled to be on your list!! xoxoxo

  80. Glad to see several from my Virtual Potluck blogging crew, along with Duchess of Fork who lives in NWFlorida near me!! I follow several, but will have to check out a few others on your list! It is nice to share your favorites. Thanks!

  81. Thanks, Sommer, for a thoughtful response to the article denouncing food bloggers. I read that post the day it was published and was completely taken aback by the attitude conveyed in it. Personally, I think there’s room for everyone in the food world and the more the merrier! Now I’m off to explore some of these wonderful blogs that I didn’t know about before!

  82. I love and follow almost all of them!

  83. Such a great list. Thanks for including me and I am bookmarking this so I can catch up on some sites I don’t know about!

  84. What a wonderful idea, and I greatly enjoyed your introductory thoughts. We are all so different! I am bookmarking this post, as there are apparently some wonderful sites I’ve been missing!

  85. Sommer, I love this post and couldn’t agree with you more. What a great list and fun post. You go girl!

  86. You’re so dang sweet.
    And right! That article has been trolling through my head for weeks. And I just keep coming up with reasons why she’s wrong wrong wrong. Did you read Willow Bird Baking’s reply?

    xo,
    Christina

  87. I would stand up and applaud this post right now if we were in the same room.
    Much love to you and our great community!

  88. Completely agree! And thank you for including me. xo!

  89. amen girl! i hate when people try to stir the pot by hating on others – not cool. this community is one of the big reasons that i find fulfillment in what i do every day! thank you for the mention on here, and know that you’re one of my favorites too :)

  92. Great post my friend!! Thanks so much for the love!

  93. I read the article you mentioned and I think your response is spot on. :) My favorite recipes have always been the ones from family and friends…and fellow bloggers are just that.

    Thank you so much for including my blog on your list….that just made my day!!!

  94. Great post, Sommer! You nailed it! Wonderful list of food blogs, too. Thanks so much for including me. xoxo

  95. Yah-huh, Sistah! YOu said it. Home cooks are the basis of the culinary industry, they always have been. It’s just now through foodblogging that we are able to extend our reach beyond friends and family. Thanks for including me in such great company…and you are an Amazing Food Blogger too!

  96. Great post! Thanks for including me Sommer!

  97. Great post and I so enjoy reading all of the different blogs, such great ideas and inspiration. I will be checking out a few on your list that are new to me. Thanks so much for including me, I’m tickled to be included in such a great group!

  98. I also read that diatribe against food bloggers and had to laugh (while being really pissed off) because the most basic tenet of any enterprise is that if it doesn’t work, it won’t succeed. And food blogging WORKS, as is evidenced by the fact that it has been happening for years, now.

    Thank you for the list, and do look into adding Global Table Adventure to it. She got me started on reading the rest of you, and I have found many quality recipes on that site.

  99. omg thanks for including me! Great post! I am taking a look at a few i didn’t know about… Have a great day!

  100. Sommer, I couldn’t agree with you more. I read that article too and couldn’t believe some of the things they said. I do believe that the food community is bigger than that one person’s “opinion” and in the end, we’ll be all the stronger for the challenges we’ve had to face. There is so much amazing talent in the food blogging world and I’m honored that you added my blog to your crawl. :) Hope you’re doing well.

  101. Great list of bloggers. And I personally think we food bloggers are the new front of the food world. Always bringing such great recipes to the masses.

  102. A lovely post!! And thanks so much for the mention, Sommer.

  103. What an amazing post, Sommer. You are wonderful, and I am completely humbled to be included with this list. So many wonderful people to call friends! xo

    I LOVE this post. I have made so many incredible, real life friends from blogging AND taught myself how to cook in the process. I wouldn’t give it up for anything, even on the days when I’m exhausted and can’t stand looking at my computer any more after a full day at work.

    I am thrilled to be included on the list – this totally made my day.

    off to check out some new blogs!
