This Week’s Best Food Post

April 13, 2009 by Joan Nova in This Month's Best Food Post, Vegetables | 11 Comments

(in my opinion)


I’m announcing a new event called This Week’s Best Food Post which, as I write this, is still in a nascent stage. Like many of you, there are lots of blogs in my Google Reader and I get quite a few via email as well. I scan them all – stopping here and there to read on or leave a comment. So I thought it would be fun to announce each week the one that most piqued my interest. Blogging, I’ve learned, is a lot about community and I’m hoping this event will have a twofold benefit: (1) to pass on some really good stuff you may have missed and (2) to perhaps help promote another blogger (whether they need or it not). Consider it in foodspeak ‘just desserts’ for a job done well.

I’m thinking weekly. I’m thinking no criteria…sometimes I’ll add a comment and sometimes I’ll just provide a link; some ‘winners’ will be based on creative cuisine, others for writing style or for photography – whatever speaks to me. Don’t forget, it’s IMO. And, it could be anyone from Mark Bittman of The New York Times…to you!

Coming soon.
NOTE: Some recipes found on FOODalogue are offered without ingredient quantities. They're meant as a guide to food pairings and techniques to be experimented with … in your own kitchen … to your own spice and taste levels … to your preferred portion sizes … and to however many people you’re cooking for. A perfect meal has multiple levels of flavor and textures, bright colors and tastes, and healthy(ish) choices. It's all about enjoyment. Enjoy the process, the presentation and the just rewards...eating!

    I didn’t rest for very long, did I? No, it’s not a competition. I will probably just select one post at a time to spotlight. We’ll see how it goes.

    Oh that is a good idea. I have been entertaining a similar idea for awhile, but I haven’t find the time or inspiration for it. I’ll follow this closely :-p

    Oh Joan… I supposed you could not stay quite for long!
    Great idea and as you write:
    “no criteria… whatever speaks to me…” Sure we will learn also more about you and all other bloggers as well!
    Which day of the week will your IMO be on line?
    Baci!
