“Founded on the idea that we eat first with our eyes, TasteSpotting is our obsessive, compulsive collection of eye-catching images that link to something deliciously interesting on the other side. Think of TasteSpotting as a highly visual potluck of recipes, references, experiences, stories, articles, products, and anything else that inspires exquisite taste.
We don’t use the term “potluck” for the hell of it. Everyone brings something to the party here: the user community submits images/links from around the web and the editorial team reviews the submissions. What finally gets served up on the site is a beautifully refined set of the community’s contributions.” – taken from the About Us section of TasteSpotting.com
This, in a nutshell, is the magic of TasteSpotting.com. I first discovered this site about two years ago after a coworker suggested I check it out to find a better fettuccini alfredo recipe. Little did I know that before my eyes would appear a virtual eye-candy land filled with some of the most awesome and delicious looking images ever. Brent (my better half) is a photographer, so he knows his stuff when it comes to taking a good picture…food is incredibly challenging. Even he was impressed by the work on the site, so much in fact that he wishes I would make things from here more often. :-)
So what kinds of things are on TasteSpotting? Well, they have just about every kind of gourmet recipe you can think of, using ingredients that you may have never considered. Besides great recipes, TasteSpotting features kitchen gadgets, entertaining tips, and other really cool stuff that can spice up your next meal – no pun intended.
So there you have it. You don’t have to sort through the mess that is Cooks.com nor do you have to join the pack of Rachael Ray worshippers to find a good recipe.
Bon appetit my friends, bon appetit.
