Bay Area Blogger of the Week # 36

Dive in

photograph picture dive blog san francisco restaurant reviews of dives

Kevin at Baconpress has, for a long time, been one of my favourite reads. Now he has started a side blog for the San Francisco masses. Against his better judgment, our Kevin promises he will venture into and eat at the places his ears, eyes, and nose instinctively warn him against. Appropriately entitled Dive, Kevin promises to spelunk the culinary hole-in-the-walls, the greasy spoons, the roach coaches - all while constantly searching for that diamond in the rough. What a guy!

PS - You have to check this out - my favourite post of the week, a must read for anyone interested in molecular gastronomy: Liquid Pea Ravioli from Hungry In Hogtown.

One of the best articles I have read in the Chronicle: Taming of the Screw by Amanda Gold, putting forward all sides of the argument in the great BYOB debate of 2006.

Hold Your Horses! Only 22 days to go until San Francisco Chronicle Restaurant Critic Michael Bauer starts a Food Blog!

A big welcome back - the prodigal daughter returns, Cindy of Food Migration is coming back to the Bay, woo-hoo!

And a new British blog I discovered, Curly Pasta, which just made me laugh. Macaroni Cheese anyone?

    referring to curley pasta - while it's a fun blog is there really enough macaroni cheese in the world to support such a site for long?

    I think Kevin is the perfect person to take the helm of such a blog. I will be keeping an eye on him for sure!

    Andrew - you had better enjoy it whilst it lasts then!
