Yes, yes, we know -- our blog roll up till now has been, well, kind of pathetic. Thank you to those bloggers who have taken us to task for it. You were right! So we at the L.A. Times Food section have put our heads together and compiled a much more comprehensive one. Certainly it just scratches the surface of the incredible wealth of terrific L.A.-centric food blogs. Blogs like the Delicious Life, spotlighting Sarah Gim’s wonderful writing. Or Monster Munching, focusing with verve on dining and cooking in Orange County. Or Rameniac, where you’ll want to go for all things ramen. (Did you know there are 22 popular ramen styles in Japan? Rameniac parses them all.)
It all starts with the beginning of our roll of L.A. food blogs (it’s on the right rail; scroll down to find it). That’s the place to find important must-check blogs such as Eater L.A., the Knife and more. Click on ‘More delicious links’ and you’ll find the rest of that list (we’re still tweaking -- we’re missing a couple of category headers), then L.A. food sites; more food blogs, such as Epi-blog (Epicurious’ group blog), the Grinder (Chow’s food media blog) and the Wednesday Chef. Then L.A. Food sites, including resources such as Yelp, Slow Food L.A. and the county Department of Public Health site for restaurant grades.
We hope our expanded links list will make it easy for you to find all things delicious in one spot. If we missed a blog or site you love or rely on, please let us know by posting a comment. We may be slow in getting it up (the L.A. Times has a very busy tech department!) but we’ll do our best.
