You knew foodblogging was a whole big thing, right? That's what I thought. What you might not know is that they're doing something different over at Press For Change Publishing and I like it. Partnering with great blog writers to compile new books and paying them a much higher percentage than a traditional publishing house. Interesting. Their first book is called Digital Dish and it's a collection of writing culled from the better food blogs.
Digital Dish is a book of astonishingly original food writing. It is a compilation of the best writing from 24 different food blogs across five seasons. The authors are true innovators in food writing and in cooking. They have been nominated for and have won food weblog awards and best weblog writing awards. They have been covered by major food magazines like Gourmet. They have been interviewed in newspapers like The New York Times, The San Francisco Chronicle and The Guardian in England. They create and write about food in ways that nobody else has.The book launch is today at 11:30AM at the Berkeley Farmer's Market and Sunday May 22nd at 4PM at the Lafayette Bookstore if you're in the Bay Area and looking for something to do. If you'd rather just surf through blogs, that's fine too. Here are the blogs featured in Digital Dish. I've helpfully arranged the links for you in a cloud-like fashion:
