Welcome to Blog Day 2005. The idea behind blog day is to choose 5 new blogs and share them with your readers. If you're wondering why August 31st was chosen, look at how the date looks like the very word "blog". Here are my picks of newish food blogs both in our own backyard and far, far away:
1. In Praise of Sardines
Born in June, this local blog is a tasty melange of recipes, opinions, reports on produce, restaurants and more. I fell in love with the Barcelona posts and have frequented it ever since.
Consider yourself lucky when you visit this local blog, you never know what treats are awaiting you--cookies, jams, infused vinegars, so much good stuff! Up and running since April this is a "mostly vegan" blog.
3. Delicious Days
This blog is based in Munich and is so beautiful--the design, the photographs, and the writing style is warm and conversational. Begun in March this is what food blogs aspire to be like when they grow up.
4. Beauty Joy Food
Another "Amy" blogger this one from Florida and her blog is Southern, fresh and juicy. Amy has been blogging since May and is one to keep your eyes on.
5. David Lebovitz
Ok, I admit it, I'm crazy about David. He's a pastry chef who shares Paris, shopping, cooking and dessert, all with his characteristic sense of humor and intelligence. My swoon started in April when the blog launched and both are going strong.
I hope you'll celebrate by visiting each one. If you'd like to see a round up of other new blogs, visit the technorati page, here.
