Chances are, if you're here reading Bay Area Bites, you probably read other food blogs, too. From blogs that focus on just one meal a day, to photographers shooting with film, to writers telling stories of people that produce the food you're eating--here are a few food blogs that are not only beautifully photographed but are innovative in the way they approach content.
Sprouted Kitchen is the work of Sara Forte and husband/photographer Hugh Forte. Sara left what she calls her "big-girl-career" job in March to pursue cooking and writing about whole foods in an approachable way. Hugh takes the photos for the site, and the two have just secured a book deal which makes those of us who love The Sprouted Kitchen really, really excited. A few recent stand-out posts are the Pear and Buckwheat Pancakes and Rustic Fig and Goat Cheese Pizza. In addition to being one of the prettiest blogs around, Sara's recipes test beautifully; I'm always confident that anything I decide to try from the blog will come out perfectly. And last, Sara's incredibly generous with comments. She usually replies to her reader's comments and is gracious about participating in the community that has, not surprisingly, developed in and around her blog. This is not something that everyone does. It makes you feel at home at Sprouted Kitchen.
