Staff Picks: Epicurious

Food is always a topic of interest and one of the web sites which is devoted to this subject is called Epicurious ( http://www.epicurious.com/ ). Fascinating and very complete in its coverage, it includes articles about specific foods, how to process and use foods, menu planning, recipes, and history of food.

Also included are timely tips for specific holidays or seasonal food interests, from Valentines Day, to Lent, to Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and the like. One may find information about the “culture of food” and the “foods of cultures”. It is sponsored by two magazines, Bon Appetite and Gourmet, but don’t hold that against it. Photographs, words, suggestions, instructions, may be even better than your mother made.
