Let’s keep this short but sweet. Atlanta is full of foodies, full of bloggers, and full of foodies who blog. (I’m looking at you ChowDownAtlanta.com, EatBufordHighway.wordpress.com, EatDrinkMan.blogspot.com, EatItAtlanta.com, TheQuickandDirtyDirty.com, SavoryExposure.com) The list goes on from there (this is where you take a look at my blogroll about halfway down the page), but those are just a few.
Not surprisingly, more than a handful of local restaurateurs and chefs also put their thoughts down on digital paper. I have a long list of those that I follow, but here are just a few that grease my monkey (in alphabetical order):
Marla Adams : Babette’s Cafe : http://www.chefmarla.typepad.com/
Adams, who may be the most sporadic of the bloggers listed here, only posts once every handful of weeks. The blog seems to double as both a inside into some of the goings on at her operation and as a place for her to express herself. The posts are often deeply personal and it’s always interesting to read someone who puts their plate on a platter (so to speak).
Taka Moriuchi :Taka Sushi : http://sushiandpassion.blogspot.com/
Moriuchi, who has been a fixture in the Atlanta sushi scene since his day’s at Soto, now runs his own joint on Pharr Road in Buckhead, aptly named Taka. His postings used to be somewhat sporadic, but he’s really picked up the pace since March. Though there are intermittent stray posts, the majority of them focus on sushi and his restaurant. He is even kind enough to share a few recipes with us … like this one for okra tempura.
Todd Richards : Lush Life Group : http://cheftoddrichards.blogspot.com/
Richards, who has several establishments around town (Rolling Bones BBQ and One Flew South), drops in about once every couple of weeks. His posts range from the deeply personal to the deeply off topic. While it may not always be NSFW, it’s always entertaining and enlightening.
There are a whole bunch of them out there folks, but that list is a good place to start. Buddha … OUT!
