Former Chef

This blog is written by Kristina, a former chef who is still working in the food industry. She says the first question people ask her when they find out she is not longer working as a chef is “do you miss it?” Which she explains is a hard question. She still loves cooking and sharing that passion with others, but if she really missed those long hours in the kitchen, she’d still be doing it. The goal of her blog is to share with people how easy cooking really is. She also discusses urban gardening and her far flung travels. Enjoy her beautiful photos as well!


Kim’s blog was originally started for professional reasons. As a consultant who recommends and designs the best user experiences for online web and mobile applications, she wanted a place to point clients and potential clients to get an idea of what she was thinking about the work she does. This was coupled with her love for cooking, and so she applies her user experience (UX) skills to all things food! I love how food blogs can be a platform for so many things, both professional and personal. As for the food, I am really enjoying her latest posts with all kinds of different salads!

Muse in the Kitchen

This blog is written by Ward and Belle, who have really found a shared passion in all things food. When Ward got the bug to start playing around in the kitchen, Belle was recruited as sous chef and recipe planner. What started as an experiment has become an over year long foray into the art of cooking. Ward who once hated the smell of curry now revels in how spicy he can get his various curry recipes to taste! This couple has certainly found their muse, and it is in the kitchen!

Italy in SF

This blog is the ultimate directory for everything Italian in the San Francisco Bay Area. Here you get the inside scoop on where Italians go to find unique products, food and unique traditions they were accustomed to in Italy. Vanessa is the chief writer of the blog. She grew up in Romagna and moved to the US in 2001. In 2008 she began her won business combining travel and food. Her passion is exploring food as an expression of culture. Maurizio is sommelier, a wine and grappa expert from Piedmont. He is the founder of Alessandria Top Wine, a yearly event that showcases Piedmont wines. He has also written Guida ai Vini d’Italia Slow Food/GamberoRosso, the ultimate guide to Italian wines.

Healthy Cook Recipes

This blog features recipes for healthy eating. The motto goes – if you care about health, just choose the recipes that good for your health! Makes a lot of sense doesn’t it? But it isn’t always that easy. It helps though when you have a blog dedicated to healthy foods. This blog makes it easy, with delicious, flavorful, yet healthy recipes!
