Article Title: Web 2.0 Cooking Tips from the Web Chef
By: Jessica E. Vascellaro
“As the Web Chef, it is only fitting that I love to cook. I’ve long enjoyed print subscriptions to Bon Appetit and Cooking Light. From the newspaper world, I keep my eyes on the weekly recipes printed in The Milwaukee Journal and The Wall Street Journal. While I’m not much of a TV watcher, I do occasionally catch Emeril or some other celebrity chef on The Food Network. One of my favorite online cooking sites is Epicurious, a Conde Nast site with recipes from Bon Appetit, Better Homes and Gardens and Gourmet or Recipezaar or AllRecipes or Cooks.com. Now I guess it is time to take my interests in Web 2.0 and cooking and combine them with newer community and video resources to continue my evolution as a chef.
This month’s Bon Appetit profiles the growth of social networks sites for the foodie. The sites referenced include FoodCandy – “where foodies meet”, ExtraTasty – perfect drink recipes and BakeSpace – “a place for cookers and bakers”. While I haven’t explored these yet, they all look like interesting community sites for sharing and exploring new food and beverage options.
Today’s Wall Street Journal suggests that another place for foodies to go is online video sites to view new celebrity stars like Ms. Sher or Bubbe and her Feed Me Bubbe clips (see the clip below about chicken soup)”
