There’s nothing more exciting for a writer (even a lowly food blogger) than somebody appreciating your work. Thank you so much to everyone who’s ever bothered to call/ write in/ message words of kindness. You have no idea how much motivation it offers to someone who spends most of their time worrying about spoons and spatulas. It’s easy to feel stupid or like you’re wasting your time while everyone’s employed at something more lucrative but every compliment lights the way.To spread the sunshine, here are some food writers I love to follow, who are doing amazing things out there in the big, bad blogosphere:
1. Tongue Ticklers: Also run by someone who juggles foodblogging and a day job, this site has incredible vegan recipes with some mindblowing food photography. There are lots of Indian food blogs out there but very few with this level of aesthetic polish.
2. Sugar and Charm: An old favourite, I’ve been following Eden Passante and her beautiful family’s adventures in California for over 3 years now. A very pretty, very pleasant, very feminine blog filled with design inspiration, photographs and mouthwatering dessert recipes.
3. M Loves M: Mara puts together some really charming outfits, simple recipes along with some great photos on this simple but elegant blog.
4. Passionate About Baking: Another Indian blog and this one has some hardcore, over the top desserts! Delightful to look at but a little intimidating to try, a lot of these recipes are on my ambitious to do list.
5. Sinfully Spicy: I realize I gravitate towards girly, dessert blogs and since we can’t survive on cookies and cobblers alone, I’m going to end with this blog that has some seriously delicious savoury dishes.
One thing all these blogs have in common is the superlative food photography, I wish I could intern with one of them to figure out how they do it! These are of course just 5 out of the hundreds of food blogs out there and maybe I can make this into a more regular series where I get you more lovely links.
The only problem with the world wide web is that it stretches so far and while I’d like to send each of these talented blog owners a batch of these decadent chocolate cookies with gooey chocolate filling, I can’t. I made these for a lunch my parents threw and realized that you never grow out of the desire for a crumbly, chocolaty, overload. Or at least my parent’s friends haven’t. And I haven’t either. These are their own reward.
