Great International Food Blog

I was searching for recipes from Djibouti when I came across the blog Global Travel Adventure.  The bloggers are cooking 195 meals from 195 countries in 195 weeks.  That’s very cool and similar to my International Food Project, through which I set out to cook every cuisine from the world.  Alas, that proved a much […]

And another cooking site

I also got an e-mail about Learn Cooking, a British website that teaches you how to make basic stuff. I took a look at it, and I found it quite useful. I use the Joy of Cooking for basic information about how to cook new stuff, but, truth be told, I do prefer online sources.

Just got an e-mail about another site for San Francisco restaurant reviews. It’s Foodnut.com and it focuses on the city and the Peninsula. It provides lots of pictures of the establishment and the dishes, as well as prices and photos of the menus. You can browse restaurants by type and price.

My recipes website

I just came about with the My Recipes website – which features recipes from Cooking Light, Southern Living, Sunset, Coastal Living, Cottage Living, Real Simple and Health magazines, among others. I don’t read any of those magazines, but for that matter, I also don’t read Gourmet or the other magazines featured on my favorite recipes […]

Cultural Profile Project

As you probably know, I love to cook international foods, and one of the places where I get recipes, in addition to invaluable information about how and what people eat is the Cultural Profile Project from Citizenship and Immigration Canada. The project provides a myriad of information about the cultures of each of very many […]
