Two years ago, Food52.com bought Food News Journal. I was expecting that Food 52 would continue to create a digest of daily food news, but so far, that hasn’t happen. Since then, there isn’t one really great place to find food news of the day. I like Eatocracy, Eater and Grub Street, but I miss Food News Journal. The editors curated relevant food news that I often shared on social media. Food and Tech Connect is an excellent resource for the intersection of food and tech startups as well as food policy and open government issues. Another good blog is Dianne Jacob’s Will Write For Food. Her blog is so valuable for food bloggers and journalists. So instead of one-stop website for food news, I look to social media for food news. Where do you find food news?

Niche Food started as a place for me to post photos and blog about food that wasn’t cupcakes. Now with Instagram and Pinterest, I haven’t been post here that often. Today I have decided to “trivet” the content on this blog. Instead of using the word “pivot” which is used to describe when a startup changes their business model, I am using the “trivet” since is a food-related. (I hope it catches on.) Anyway, I have been interested in food startups, food apps, and artisan food businesses, so Niche Food will be featuring news about the emerging food businesses.
