Last week I posted about some of the delicious food writing that was pushing me back into the kitchen. Not only am I a happier foodie again, I am also knee-deep in planning a big August blogging project for Eat Local, America! month. Starting next week I’ll be posting 31 entirely local recipes in 31 days. Yup, you read it. No sugar, salt or non-local ingredients for an entire month! If we don’t grow it in Minnesota, it won’t be on my plate. The kitchen partner and I are going cold turkey. (**Sidebar: I’d love to know where that food idiom comes from????)
This will be the last Find it Local Friday until after the challenge. So today I want to share the gratitude again for all the kind Minnesotans who inspire me to have new food adventures, to eat locally, and to share it with the world. Here’s where to find the best Minnesota food blogging and a great group of food-loving folks:
Minnesota Food Bloggers Launched earlier this month, MN Food Bloggers is a newly developed website headed up by Stephanie Meyer at Fresh Tart. Not only does it have links to food events around the metro, but it also rocks my world with a blog roll of over 100 Minnesota-based sites. It’s the place to find the big, and not so big names in MN food writing. I strongly suggest a good cup of coffee and a free afternoon to meander through the list. So much out there to eat, read and enjoy.
Minnesota Food Bloggers on Facebook If you like what you see on the website, or if you are a Minnesota food writer, check out the Facebook group as well. It keeps me up-to-date on new posts and big local food events. Warning: scrolling through the newsfeed may cause excessive drooling and slight pangs of jealousy. How do they get their photos to look so good?!?
Minnesota Food Bloggers on Twitter Sense a social-media trend? We are one well-networked (and hip!) community here in the North Star state. If you happen to be tweeting about the amazing photos you’ve seen while cruising the sites above, you can now use #MNFoodBloggers and @MNFoodBloggers to share the love. Follow them both.
