Five Food Blogs That Will Inspire and Challenge You

August 8, 2013


1. KokBlog

I’ll give you a moment to get over the smirk-inducing name. Designer Johanna Kindvall’s self-illustrated cooking blog – with its guide to Scandinavian dishes – is a visual treat.

From instructions for pickled mustard herring to schematic diagrams of beef stew, the artistic cook offers heaps of cleverly sketched inspiration from Sweden and beyond.

2. Chocolate & Zucchini

French food writer Clotilde Dusoulier opens a window on her back yard, which just happens to be bang in the sophisticated center of gastronomy itself – Paris.

If fresh, colorful, and seasonal produce whipped into wholesome, tasty Gallic cuisine strikes a chord, then look no further.

3. Gannet & Parrot

A talented illustrator, wordsmith, mother, and chef – art school-trained Chloe King – shares heirloom recipes, beautifully crafted photographs, and charming glimpses into the historic, eccentric, and anarchic English town of Lewes, where she lives amid the rolling hills of the South Downs.

Learn about dwyle flunking (an ancient pub sport) or learn a recipe for bread made from spelt, an ancient wheat.

4. My Korean Kitchen

This food blog does exactly what the title promises it will. But it does it so well, that it absolutely deserves a top-five place in your dietary browsing.

Sue Pressey lays out simple, step-by-step instructions for traditional Korean recipes – alongside colourful photos – and makes you want to come back for more.

Perfect your steamed-rice technique or stir-fry some dried squid strips – there are lots of ideas to choose from.

5. Cafe Fernando

Cenk Sonmezsoy is an award-winning Turkish writer who chronicles the enticing world of the Istanbul food scene. Not only is he a Golden Girls fan(!) but he spent years living in California, for which he remains touchingly homesick.

Recipes for traditional Turkish cuisine sit alongside a huge archive of goods with which to inspire the sweet-toothed.
