Open Source Food

Thought this one deserves a mention on the blog – Open Source Food. Now, its not food for thought in an open source programming kind of way – more along the lines of Open Source recipes, community-driven food from around the world.

I’m a massive lover of foreign foods, any country in the world, and I love spending time in the kitchen (when I have time that is), messing around with different fresh ingredients, cooking up a storm for one, two or a load of people. I’ve been doing some restaurant work of late in Kilkenny (for a client) and I’ve been slowly building a food project of my own since August 2005 (one of those serious back-burner things that should be coming to light in a month or two) but this site is a pleasure to trip around. Hell, the Gourmet Food and Wine Expo in Toronto last year was a good highlight for me.

Big full colour photos of meals prepared by community users, full ingredients, step-by-step guides and a really easy navigation (easier than getting around the kitchen or leafing through a tiny-print cookbook with fancy studio shots). How about some Japanese noodles made in China, some spring onion and ginger crabs, or a banana muffin for that morning coffee?

Give it look, try something out!

    Damm you, this means eating…

    Any chance of doing a food and music festival in Kilkenny?

    I’d never survive! Would love to see something like it. Thinking on going to the Mantua Festival in Roscommon mid-July, says music and food on the bill so why not! Must see actually if the Good Food Circle or Fair Trade are doing anything in Kilkenny this year re: food.
