emilyhanhan asked: loaded question for you, bb. favorite food-centric tumblrs?
This is a good question because you know me IRL and you know how distracted I get and how hard it is for me to decide. Let’s timestamp (as of 10/8/2013 at 12:07pm). Ask me again in a week!
For technique, I go to America’s Test Kitchen.
For straight up gastronomy porn, Kitchen Circadia.
Kindred spirit when it comes to the economy of ingredient use and general excitement about eating at home, Needs More Salt.
And for breaking, like the ramen burger, and other Japanese delights: Eataku.

Data workers are something there is no shortage of in the modern world, but it seems there are fewer people willing to get their hands dirty. This trend has created a disconnect between us and our food, something that Whole Foods Market intends to remedy by launching a Meat Apprenticeship Program. The program will teach initiates how to become master carvers regardless of what species they are dealing with. The intensive 18-month training program also aims to instil a deep understanding of the company’s standards for quality, animal welfare, food safety, sanitation and commitment to retail excellence.

"A few things to take away from R. Kelly’s grocery list:
Dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets exist and R. Kelly wants them.
Anyone shopping from this list better not select more than three bananas or fewer than three bananas. The only acceptable number of bananas is three.
R. Kelly will cut his own romaine lettuce spears, thank you very much."

Apparently the foodie tv trend has trickled down to MTV, the network that used to show music videos. According to Deadline, MTV will debut MTV’s House Of Food and Snackdown. John Legend’s fiance Chrissy Teigen will be one of the judges on Snackdown. I really hate it when supermodels host food shows, but if they do it should be someone like Karlie Kloss. Karlie collaborated with Christina Tosi made a healthy cookie video.
MTV’s House Of Food – In this drama-infused take on food TV, a group of young aspiring chefs with no formal culinary training are put to the ultimate challenge. MTV’s House Of Food (working title) is a one hour, weekly docu-series that combines the exciting real-life competitive elements of culinary school, with the dramatic setting of a house reality show. The cast has been chosen for their passion for cooking and food culture, and their backgrounds are as varied as their personalities. With three of the country’s best chefs as their teachers and the gastronomically diverse city of Los Angeles as their classroom, this determined group will live together and learn together but only one will win an apprenticeship of a lifetime. Producers: T Group Productions Jenny Daly Mike Duffy Snackdown — From the mind of Rob Dyrdek comes a new cooking competition show, which takes mundane munchies and elevates it to a fully baked art-form! Snackdown (working title) is a half hour strip, cooking competition show where a group of amateur chefs battle it out in an array of “snack” inspired challenges. Host Eddie Huang brings his culinary skills and snack-expertise to help guide our contestants through these unique challenges. Then it’s up to our three judges to decide each amateur chef’s fate. The panel consists of supermodel and foodie fanatic Chrissy Teigen, master chef Jason Quinn, and a third judge TBA. The contestants are all vying for a cash prize, their recipe published in the Snackdown cookbook, and the coveted golden spork necklace! Producers: Superjacket Productions

"Startups have made it so much easier for peer-to-peer buying and bartering these days. Need a place to stay? Swap houses. Want to fill out your wardrobe? Swap clothing. And coming soon is Leftover Swap, a smartphone app to help you barter or give away your leftovers. This is either ingenius or cringe-worthy, depending on your penchant for other people’s unfinished meals. “It’s obviously not for everybody,” says Leftover Swap co-founder Dan Newman. “But for as many people who seemingly have a problem with it, there’s people who love the idea.” The basic gist is this: Let’s say you have some leftover pizza. Snap a photo of it and post it to the app’s database. Strangers in the same geographic market then have an option of trading you for the food — or just taking it off your hands."
