Anyone hungry?

With the current media obsession about food and cooking, there has been an explosion of websites to guide you and, certainly, overwhelm you. Below are a sampling of some popular ones.

All Recipes (www.allrecipes.com) offers recipe collections (desserts, breakfasts, etc.), a recipe exchange, holiday recipes and more.

America the Bountiful (http://digital.lib.ucdavis.edu/projects/food/index.html) is a library exhibit about 10 classic American food groups and a historical perspective for each including recipes.

Cookstr (www.cookstr.com) has recipes by well-known chefs and authors from accalimed cookbooks. You may sign up for a weekly newsletter with 10 recipes.

Episurious (www.epicurious.com) was one of the first food sites. It has recipes from Bon Appetit and Gourmet. It includes cooking videos and information on wine pairings.

Sustainable Table (www.sustainabletable.org) encourages visitors to "eat local and buy local." The site links to the Meatrix http://www.themeatrix.com/ which explains the difference between factory farms and locally raised meat. Also included is an "Eat Well Guide" for finding local, organic food. Resources for teachers are also included.

Thanks for the great list. Now I need to figure out a way of getting my laptop in a safe place in the kitchen so I can follow the online recipe =)
