Oh. My. God.

Couldn't you have posted this after the semester? Like Xmas week or so?

Excellent--I've just found reading material for the next month.

Now if only someone would do this for craft blogs...

Some of these have constant posts going back to 2004. I shall read them while eating!

Not enough veggie blogs!! The only one on there seemed kind of boring, honestly...

Fantastic list -- my only disappointment is no Ethiopian blog in the list (the first thing I looked for).

I was familiar with a few of these but this is an impressive list and like snowysoul says, great procrastination tools. See also 'Eight Recipes that Rocked the Internet.' I'm never going to finish these documents. And the comments provide even more regional blogs for thought.

Seconding vers, where's the Ethiopian blog, I still can't get my damn teff injera to come out right.

This is great. I'm a huge fan of Eating in Translation which the author describes as "fascinating food in New York and occasionally farther afield." It's written by Dave Cook who occasionally contributes food stories to the New York Times and is remarkably unpretentious.

Wonderful! Thank you :)

Very nice, but they didn't include any Caribbean blogs. Tsk!

Mooseli - veggies will not escape distraction in this post! Behold the huge listings of standout blog posts and recipies from each day of the Vegan Month of Food, which just happened in October, with participants from around the world. A further time suck, in the form of a random blog post generator from Vegan Mofo, is also available.

Burp.

I just discovered Green Kitchen Stories via their iPad app. What a stunning display of photography and simple recipes. I am in love!

The Korean food blog linked doesn't seem to have been updated since 2008.

The best one, however, is Maangchi.

There was this one, FatManSeoul, but sadly it's also defunct.

The others ones are, IMO, pretty awful if not downright mercenary (they review restaurants that they get comped at but fail to mention this).

I've never had a bad recipe from the Algerian food blog 64 sq ft kitchen.

Sigh. Some of these blogs haven't been updated in months, and in a few cases years.

This seems like a bit of a psychological, rather than a practical, problem. There's a ton of content there, even if it hasn't been "updated." Mastering the Art of French Cooking also hasn't been updated in years, but most folks recognize that the content that is there is more than sufficient for long immersion.

One of the greats is FXCuisine out of Switzerland, he has not updated in a few years, the archives are well worth it.

"Mastering the Art of French Cooking"

. . . is a book, not a blog. A blog implies someone keeping up with recent trends and so on.

Yes, as I said, this is a psychological problem. I understand that you have that distinction in your mind, but I'm not sure that web log implies "keeping up with recent trends" so much. If there's a lot of content, and it's good content, it doesn't really matter when it was last updated except insofar as you might want more of the good content.

… especially if it's a food or cooking blog. The recipes won't expire.
