“Blogroll” of the Dice: A Look at Members’ Blogs
New Feature: Blog-Roll of the Dice
Did you know that we have a robust Blog Roll on IACP’s Blog? Any member can request that we include their blog in the listing.
The good news is that we currently have 85 participating blogs! The bad news is that we currently have 85 blogs! Because it’s a daunting task to peruse so many, even on a lazy Sunday sipping a cup of oolong tea.
So we’re starting a new blog feature called “Blog-Roll of the Dice.” We’re presenting five blogs at a time, making our selection by picking every “nth” blog…in this case, every 17th.
Perusing a group of five makes more sense, no? Be sure to send us your blog info, so that you may soon be one of the lucky ones!
Cooking with Amy
Amy Sherman doesn’t need much introduction, as she was one of the early pioneers in the blogosphere and has a big following. Her latest postings include a discourse on strawberry farming, based on a visit with the California Strawberry Growers Association, and a round-up of books about special diets that don’t feel like diet books.
The Heritage Cook
Jane Bonacci is a SF-Bay Area cook and blogger who spends time exploring the traditional roots of the food she loves to cook. She recently was diagnosed as being gluten-intolerant, so while she hasn’t changed her appetites, she now adapts favorites so that they are gluten-free.
Maureen Barry’s Seafood Lady
This is an exciting blog written by a longtime Florida seafood broker who decided to step out of the commodity fish world and report on sustainability, ocean health, delicious fish and more. Her personal story is inspiring, so don’t miss that part, and check out the many recent posts on the Sustainable Foods Institute (SFI) event she attended this past May at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Her caricature of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is charming!
Robin Asbell’s Real Food Digest
This blog is written by a private chef, cooking teacher, and cookbook author who is vegetarian and a lover of whole grains as well. Her blog captures a range of her experiences, with current postings covering a Korean tofu recipe, a dinner in NYC’s Blossom restaurant, and a review of (IACP member) Ivy Manning’s new book on crackers.
Writes 4 Food
A clean and sophisticated blog written by Bryn Mooth, a Cinncinnati freelancer writer, with input from her husband Rob Mooth, the cocktail specialist. The lead posting is about a fascinating article Mooth wrote for the Cinncinnati Enquirer about a collection of recipe cards Mooth found in an antique store and proceeded to search for the author, a Clara Williams who was cooking in 1930. Super cool treatment of this nostalgic topic.
