Top food blogs

A regular taste of who's serving up what online

We've scoured the web for some of the best foodie blogs around this month. In one of them, Food Stories, Helen Graves gets in an octo-pickle this month as she tackles one of the trickier subjects in her kitchen, the octopus  

It's all go in the world of culinary blogs, where loads of fantastic recipes crop up on a regular basis. And the great things is most are being posted by home-cooks who understand we don’t have all day to cook and not everyone has a professional kitchen at their disposal.  

With such a menu of varied online treats available, however, how do you decide where to start? The answer is – here. Each month we’ll be bringing you exciting recipes from different hand-picked sites in a 'taster' of the world's best foodie blogs.    

Our first port of call is Food Stories. One of the top three food blogs in the UK, Food Stories is penned by London-based psychologist Helen Graves. She writes as if you were sharing a chat in her kitchen as she negotiates lamb shanks and pig's trotters. This month read about her entertaining trials and tribulations with an octopus.     

Hollow Legs – something we all wish we had occasionally – comes from half-Chinese, half-English Lizzie, who says she has no specific culinary ethos but is “always hungry”. She posts interestingly titled dishes, such as Pock-marked Mother Chen's bean curd and great takes on classic dishes, for example her pork and shellfish combination.     

Taste Buddies, written by half-Thai Syrie Wongkaew, is our next stop. It features mouth-watering delights all illustrated with her excellent photography, which in the case of her ricotta ravioli with dark chocolate sauce, for example, are an indispensable element. A recent trip to Oregon produced a vegan treat in the form of a cashew cream parfait.
