Editorial Reviews

Review

"Back when the Internet was being developed in the '60s and '70s, its creators probably never thought it would lead to a revolution in food writing and photography. But that's exactly what has happened: All over the world, food lovers are blogging about their experiences, sharing recipes, and creating an intimate community of cooking enthusiasts. All through this delightful cookbook, you'll see recipe after recipe that shows that community's diversity--dishes from Russia, Israel, Spain, and Japan, as well as from all across the United States. Just as compelling are the stories that accompany the recipes--a look into the lives of people who have made food and cooking a central part of a well-lived life." --Victoria von Biel, executive editor, "Bon Appetit"""

Format: Paperback
Here's a cookbook that's so much more than a collection of recipes but also fun to read thanks to all the friendly folks who write about their common interest - good food. FOODISTA BEST OF FOOD BLOGS COOKBOOK holds 100 great recipes complete with photographs of completed dishes and contributors.

No more bending over a keyboard searching the web for topnotch recipes and preparation advice. Then just when you think you might have found what you're looking for how do you know it's reliable? Thanks to a cookbook contest sponsored by foodista.com winners were announced this year at the International Food Bloggers Conference. Next, thanks to Andrews McMeel their guaranteed delicious recipes are now available in an eye-popping book also holding the winners' photos, towns of origin, and blog sites.

Now, I did say fun: who can resist a blog titled "Kiss My Spatula"? It's penned by a gal in Marin, California who "loves being in the kitchen, behind the camera, and in front of life." She offers "Fennel and Orange Salad with Toasted Hazelnuts and Cranberries," Colorful and versatile this salad is the best as a first course or a light meal on its own.

You won't want to overlook "The Kitchen Of Oz," a blog by Ozhan Ozturk who lives in Istanbul and shares his recipe for "Spicy Pumpkin Soup," "Its enriched flavor with a touch of roasted mustard and coriander seeds along with grated nutmeg will make your day on a snowy winter afternoon."

Hillary Thrasher from Washington, D.C. offers a favorite comfort food from her blog "Belly Up To The Blog," - an oatmeal cookie with bacon! Those would be mighty tasty with "Maple Cinnamon Ice Cream" from a blogger in Costa Rica.

That's just a wee sampling of the goodies in store for you in FOODISTA - it's surprising, fun, and chock full of terrific eats.

Enjoy!

Our friends introduced us to this cooks' book and my husband and I liked it so much we rushed out and purchased it for our friends and family. It is a compilation by cooks about their love for food. It has an enjoyable global perspective as the contributor's are food bloggers from around the world. I am a vegetarian and found many recipes in all categories that I will be trying. The layout and production quality are great.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Books and Chocolate TOP 500 REVIEWER on February 5, 2011
Format: Paperback
Food blogs are among my favorites in the blogging community so it's fun to have a cookbook that not only showcases diverse recipes from bloggers around the world but also introduces the reader to them and their passion for cooking, courtesy of Foodista.com.

I have to confess that in my first look-through of this cookbook it seemed that I would have a hard time finding anything I'd actually try because I'm more drawn to down home recipes that use ingredients I can easily find locally and don't take a lot of time or money to prepare. (I'm not a food snob so I have no problem resorting to Hamburger Helper now and then.) But, as I read through the book a second time I did find several recipes that would fit with my family's tastes while not breaking my food budget or require detective work to find certain ingredients in the rural community in which I live.

The recipes run the gamut of unusual offerings such as Bacon Caramels (yes, caramel candy with bacon), Salmon Head Soup, and Homemade Tagliatelle with Wild Boar Stew and a few other dishes I didn't recognize, to those I will actually try such as Ancient Grains Bread, Cranberry Crumb Bars, Triple Citrus Cake, and Baked Lentil Cheeseburgers. I did make the Chicken and White Bean Chili, omitting the ground and fresh coriander because I didn't have any on hand, and substituting frozen diced green peppers for the fresh with good results.

This is a cookbook for more adventurous cooks who like to try new recipes with an exotic or international flair, but the directions seem clear enough for a novice cook to navigate. I think the main challenge may be finding some of the ingredients if one doesn't have easy access to specialty markets.
