November food blogger round-up

Posted By on Mon, Nov 11, 2013 at 8:06 AM

We know, of course, that everybody's favorite food blog is Eat Arkansas — and we certainly can't blame any of you for that opinion. But in a world where food is the last socially acceptable form of abject hedonism, it should come as no surprise that there are quite a few other blogs out there doing their part to promote local food in the form of restaurant reviews, festival write-ups, and recipes. I like to come in every few weeks and list a few of the ones I'm reading, and I hope you'll check these out.

*Foodie Cuisine: Todd Barron's Foodie Cuisine blog is a well-designed look at restaurants all around Arkansas (and beyond). Todd's blog has consistently beaten out my own personal blog over on Urbanspoon for top dog in Little Rock, and it's a well deserved #1.

*Vanishing Veggie: All of our readers who are vegan or vegetarian should check out this blog from Dana Vickerson. I've seen Dana's comments pop up on the Food Feedback Friday segments from time to time, and she always links some interesting things. If you've been looking for a way to eat out around Central Arkansas without all that meat, this is a good resource to see what's good around town.

*Arkansas Pie: Of course Kat Robinson needs no introduction to Eat Arkansas readers, but you may not have seen the website companion to her book all about everybody's favorite dessert, pie. Kat also has a new book out, Classic Eateries of the Ozarks and Arkansas River Valley, which you can order here.

*Arkansas Beer Blog: As the name indicates, this is a blog all about beer in Arkansas. This blog is a vital resource for finding out what new beers are making it into the state from all around the country, and the beer reviews are thoughtful, interesting, and occasionally quite funny.

*What Amber Loves: From an e-mail I received after a Twitter call for recipes comes this tasty looking fritter batter recipe from Amber Henson. Don't stop there with this blog, though, because it has a wealth of posts about gardening, decorating, and plenty of good recipes.

*Arkansas Local Food Network: I've long been a fan of Sam Hedges and the Arkansas Local Food Network. The ALFN blog is a great resource for getting personal snapshots of our local growers, and really puts a personal touch on the fine folks you see selling fruits and vegetables at the local farmers markets. There aren't many people working harder to get the word out about local produce, so check this one out.

*Eggs and Herbs: Last, but definitely not least, is Eggs and Herbs, one of my favorite blogs around. This is a well-written and informative blog that makes it easy to get down the rabbit hole with its archives. Well worth a bookmark for constant reading!

Of course, as always, this is only the smallest scratch at the surface of what's out there. Let me know your favorites down there in the comments, and let's get to know each other.
