Indulge in a Little Bit of Hard-Core Food Pornography
So, whilst looking for a recipe on how to make cheese today, I stumbled across a great recipe video blog called Food Wishes Video Recipes with Chef John. Not only is Chef John funny and a bit odd, but his style and finesse make cooking look like, well, a piece of cake. Best of all, everything on his site looks delicious. You must check it out [here].
And no, he’s not performing any pornography on his site. Totally SFW. Really, I’m not even here to talk about Chef John. What I am here to talk about is Tastespotting, a site Chef John mentioned a couple of times on his site, aka, my new favorite place to drool on the Internet. It’s been around for a year or two, but if you haven’t yet seen it, get ready to get hooooooked.
It’s a website (and oh, what a brilliant, brilliant idea someone had) where people can post pictures, just pictures (with one or two line descriptions) of their culinary delights. When you click on the picture, it takes you to the root blog or website containing the original recipe. When I first started looking at this site, I was instantly entranced for, like, 2 hours. You’ll understand why I call it pornography when you see this site. So simple, so magical.
Here it is, in ALL it’s glory. www.tastespotting.com
I may never buy another cook book again.
