New Cookbook Includes Recipes from SoCal Food Bloggers

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

A new cookbook aims to turn crowd-sourced material into crowd-pleasing plates, and among those whose eats are included are ten Southern California-based food bloggers.

Though collecting a community's recipes to compile in a publication is how many beloved cookbooks have come to be, The Best of Food Blogs Cookbook hails itself as the first to source the recipes from social media. It is published by Foodista, a public wiki for the culinarily-inclined.

Of the bloggers included, the nearly-dozen who live, eat, and blog in SoCal are Charles Thompson (100 Miles); Active Foodie; Mika Ono (Ancient Wisdom, Modern Kitchen); Laurel Lyman (Cork Popper); Chrystal Baker & Amir (Duo Dishes); Cynthia Furey (Furey & The Feast); Pamela (My Man’s Belly); Kate (Savour Fare); Skip to Malou; and Lori Jablons (Stuff to Eat).
