Too Many Chefs post of the week

Wow, has it really been since November 20 since we posted one of these? Good gravy! We slacked off (OK, I slacked off as the holidays bore down and I kept meaning to get back to this feature but just never did.)

Each week, we pick three posts that we particularly liked from the wide, wide world of Food Blogs, and man, has that world grown over the last couple of months! Lots of good new blogs to choose from (but do me a favor and don't abandon those old blogs yet, eh?).

1. The first post this week is the inaugural edition of Dining with the Bloggers on my little kitchen (which, incidentally is hosting IMBB? tomorrow). As you know, I think a digest of the "best of's" on the web each week is invaluable. The blogosphere is expanding and more guides are needed. (It was mlk's post, by the way, that finally shamed me into picking up the POTW again...)

I. Augustus Gloop has apparently packed up, left Roald Dahl's England, and headed off to Sydney to encounter the Dark Side of Hyde Park where one eats one's meal entirely in the dark. I don't mean "in the light of a particularly dim candle," I mean IN THE DARK with waiters wearing night vision goggles bringing you your meal. Augustus brings back some stunning photographs of the food as he ate it and has posted them at grabyourfork. They must be seen to be believed, though the photos were a bit underexposed if you ask me.

A. It's January and lots of people are trying to eat right and lose weight. It's a long, hard struggle and strong willpower is needed to survive the temptations and roadblocks that can - Oh the hell with it, let's have some chocolate cake! Deb on Words to Eat By wishes she were allergic to chocolate, but she's not and was forced by her non-allergic status to make a great looking chocolate yogurt cake. Wow, that looks good. I may need a minute alone here...

Well, that's it for this week. We WILL be back next week with three more posts that strike our fancy.

Thanks for the nod, Barrett! Shockingly, there is still a small piece of that cake left in my kitchen. Five minutes from now I'm pretty sure that will no longer be true.

Thanks Barrett! It's so nice to see POTW back again (and I'm in it!).

One of my favorite features, I always find something I missed. Thanks for bringing it back!

Hey Barrett - Thanks for the mention! Dining in the Dark was a great experience and is highly recommended. And yes, the photos were a little underexposed :P but at least you can't spot the camera shake in the dessert shot!!!
