Welcome to Blog Day 2005. The idea behind blog day is to choose 5 new blogs and share them with your readers. If you’re wondering why August 31st was chosen, look at how the date looks like the very word “blog”. Here are my picks of newish food blogs both in our own backyard and far, far away:

1. In Praise of Sardines
Born in June, this local blog is a tasty melange of recipes, opinions, reports on produce, restaurants and more. I fell in love with the Barcelona posts and have frequented it ever since.

2. Bunnyfoot
Consider yourself lucky when you visit this local blog, you never know what treats are awaiting you–cookies, jams, infused vinegars, so much good stuff! Up and running since April this is a “mostly vegan” blog.

3. Delicious Days
This blog is based in Munich and is so beautiful–the design, the photographs, and the writing style is warm and conversational. Begun in March this is what food blogs aspire to be like when they grow up.

4. Beauty Joy Food
Another “Amy” blogger this one from Florida and her blog is Southern, fresh and juicy. Amy has been blogging since May and is one to keep your eyes on.

5. David Lebovitz
Ok, I admit it, I’m crazy about David. He’s a pastry chef who shares Paris, shopping, cooking and dessert, all with his characteristic sense of humor and intelligence. My swoon started in April when the blog launched and both are going strong.

I hope you’ll celebrate by visiting each one. If you’d like to see a round up of other new blogs, visit the technorati page, .

    Amy thanks so much for sharing those appetizing blogs. Blog Day is certainly a great concept to expose quality blogs that are not in the limelight!

    What a neat idea. You listed three of my favorites, and one of my brand new favorites. I’m off to check out your fifth listing! : )


Amy Sherman

Amy Sherman began blogging in 2003, because all her
friends and family were constantly asking her where
and what to eat. Three months after it launched,
Forbes chose her blog, Cooking with Amy, as one of the
top five best food blogs, praising her writing as
“smart, cozy and witty”. Since then her blog has been
featured and recipes reprinted in many newspapers and
magazines in the U.S. and the world.

In addition to regularly updating her blog, Amy is a
guest contributor to the Epicurious.com blog, and
Contributing Editor of Glam Dish. She also writes
restaurant reviews for SF Station.

Her focus on Bay Area Bites is primarily cookbook
reviews along with some interviews and current events.

Amy is a recipe developer and freelance food writer.
She is author of WinePassport: Portugal and wrote the new introduction to the classic cookbook, Jane Grigson’s Vegetable Book, published by the University of Nebraska Press. She recently completed 45 recipes for a Williams-Sonoma cookbook and wrote her first piece for VIA magazine.
