The Gourmet Pig: "I've often complained about the Bay Area restaurant scene, from both a professional and diner's point of view. It's a pretty homogeneous one, and the if you're looking for something at all creative, you'll have to search pretty hard...So, can we do better California?"
Foray into Food: Not a Bay Area Food Blog, but included because, like me, JennyWenny is another food-loving Brit living in California. She points us to this useful blog which should help out any Americans trying to understand the differences between them and us. Please, all of, you start out with this post explaining the difference between High Tea and Afternoon Tea.
Fun and Food: An Indian living in USA, who hence has the advantage of being exposed to several traditional and fusion styles of cooking. She thinks of herself as a "Self-proclaimed Expert Chef", who dreams of having her own restaurant some day.
Taste Tests. Enjoying life one taste at a time: For someone who loves indulging in food and taking pictures, a food blog was the inevitable result.
The Gourmet Chronicles: Recipes for life from a slightly cynical, perpetually hungry New York Latina now wandering the hilly & silly streets of San Francisco.
Menupages Blog, SF: I really thought I had linked to this blog long since. Apologies to it's writer Adam Martin for not having sent out the link love sooner.
Deglazed: Incorporating bits of Bay Area Restaurant Reviews, Farmers Market Reports and Gastronomer Spotlights.
Delights and Prejudices: On the topic of jam. "Last week I tried to describe to a mysterious Southern gentleman the appeal of the Alemany market. Many components inform the mix, but, like good jam, the mess boils down to one idea, and to me it's the sense of community."
Last but not least. Please head over to Barbara at Winos & Foodies to see how to take part in Live STRONG With A Taste Of Yellow - 2008. In the past year several of my closest friends and loves ones have gotten cancer. I have experienced both survival and hope and sadness and loss, all in one short year. Barbara is mailing me some Live Strong yellow bracelets. If you are a blogger in the Bay Area planning to take part in her challenge and would like a bracelet, please let me know and I will get one to you. [While stocks last]
