has anyone else found the food blogosphere to be pretty uninspiring these days? i feel like it's stuck in this pedestrian plateau where the next level is always another way to use seasonal ingredients to make pizza or pasta or soup. I find that in the spirit of being connectable and easy to follow, the inspiration factor has gradulally levelled off in relation. for that i must visit restaurant websites for their menus, or pick out a chef that stands out from the rest and try and subscribe to their culinary outlook.
i used to find sites like foodgawker, 101cookbooks and the plethora of personal food bloggers pretty useful when it came to picking something to make that i've never made before. SE has managed to stay as a great reference mostly because of the articles and contributors on here.
