Some blogs for the foodies

I've been quite uninspired as of late, but also feel the urge to blog about *something.* So I'm going to cheat and showcase a few friends who are much more dedicated, awesome food writers/bloggers than I! Prepare to drool...

Amuses Bouche - This is my homegirl Susannah's food blog. She always has a thoughtful, journalistic approach to her posts. Which is apropos because she is a journalist by training and most recently scored her DREAM JOB of food writing for...

YumSugar.com - Yay! Susannah writes for this food-related arm of the Sugar Network under the handle "YumSugar." Check it out, leave comments!

Inuyaki - My buddy Arnold's food blog. There are few people in the world who have the same love of food as Arnold. It shows in his writing about bringing fine dining to home cooking (he's practically a sous vide master), comprehensive and discerning restaurant reviews, and his holy-shit-that's-obsession Ad Hoc archive, which keeps track of every. single. menu. from Thomas Keller's Yountville restaurant since September 2007.  (I've eaten there thrice and still dream of the day I return).

Psych and the Kitchen - A totally awesome and educational blog from my friend, T., who is generous enough with her time to chronicle her experiences as she pursues culinary school (in addition to her full-time job as a school psychologist!). I freely admit that I am JEALOUS. 

. . . 

And a couple of blogs from people I wish were my friends...

Burnt Lumpia - I love, love, love this food blog from a Filipino American dude in LA who is exploring his culinary roots with interpretations and experimentations based on classic Filipino dishes and ingredients (um, Duck Adobo Confit!), plus other yummy musings. 

Cupcake Bakeshop by Chockylit - Best freakin' cupcake blog out there. Sadly, the author (I think she's in SF and some kind of engineer by training) has decided to stop blogging but will keep the site up. Which is good for us because the woman is talented. Her recipes are creative, sophisticated, and accessible to the home baker. 

Hope you liked some of these links...I'm on a hunt for my camera charger so that I can upload some pictures of my recent beet obsession. Stay tuned!

I love foodblogs written by folks in culinary school, you feel as if you're getting a chance to learn with them. So thanks for the link and I'm with you: a little jealous! Cooking school would be a delight. :)
