Global Gastronomy

For geeks, bloggers are some of the coolest people on earth.

(Don’t you even take the word, “geek” as an insult. I mean it fondly, and I say it lovingly, and I include myself in that category. Face it, if you sit and write about food–or whatever topic it is you are passionate about–all the time and don’t get paid for it–you are a geek.)

Anyway, why do I say this?

Well, because not only do I learn a lot of interesting stuff by reading blogs, but I have found a lot of food bloggers willing to compile lots of information that is useful and interesting, but which is a hell of a lot of work.

A fine example is the new blog, Global Gastronomy, put together by Biscuit Girl, who also pens You Gonna Eat All That?.

Global Gastronomy is not a typical blog, but instead, is an alphabetical clearinghouse of Internet resources for recipes from every cuisine imaginable.

For the moment, she is only posting resources in English, and she says that the “A’s” are done.

It is a huge undertaking, and I applaud her efforts and vow to give her whatever assistance I can–because I think that there is great value in this project.

So–good on you, Biscuit Girl–keep up the good work!

  1. Why thank you! I’m thrilled to know that someone out there likes my recipe lists! I’m almost ready to post all the countries and regions that start with “B”. I have a list that is in rough draft that covers a-z and am in the process of checking all the links to be sure they are still active. So keep checking back.
