Top 100 food blogs in 2010

Here is Cellarer’s guide to the most popular food blogs. The contest includes all personal sites but the table shows only the 100 ‘best’ — ‘best’ is evaluated with public website metrics.

Herebelow is an overview of the results.

A comprehensive pool of candidates

My brother and my father cooking dinner for the familyThe number of websites that I retrieve metrics for is 500. This (update: private) list is close to being complete: it includes almost all the websites that qualify.

The small against the big

I chose to not include magazines, that is sites that are written by many contributors. Press and firms have their means of getting known. I’d rather promote unique voices (blogs). So the top food blogs is a convenient tool for getting to know prominent culinary authors. Please tell me if you spot an item in the list that would have more than 2 contributors.

How to participate

Websites are automatically included in the contest as soon as I learn of their existence. To be eligible to the next issue of the Top food blogs, the below conditions must be met:

  1. The main topic should be food.
  2. The articles must be written by no more than two persons (not a team) — so as to screen firms.

You can follow the ranking evolution by subscribing to the feed on websites blog RSS.

Elsewhere

There are ways to discover food-related sites. Here is the list of the best French food blogs. You can also take the tour at Cellarer search, a search engine dedicated to wine and food.

    Greetings, Estelle,

    Thank you for having found my wine blog, and including it in your Cellarer search. Best wishes to you in your wine career. — jo

  2. I can understand not adding the blog below to the this contest purely for the reason of not having seen it before. But should this contest include all the best food blogs, not having the one below is borderline criminal:

    I don’t know if this site qualifies, but I’ve been visiting it for a few months and like the information they provide about cookware (I am retired and started learning how to cook so bought a lot of cookware based on their recommendations and have been happy with it so far) and they just started adding recipes.

    The website it The Gourmet Tray and the address it http://www.thegourmettray.com

    Thanks

    Charlie

    On your top 100 list you said you have a top 500 list as well, but where can I find that on your site?

  8. Hello Charlie. Sorry for not being clear. The complete list of food blogs is private: I am keeping it on the side to feed into the top 100.
    Thank you for your suggestion of The Gourmet Tray. It does not qualify because it is not a blog (in the sense that it is not built by one person out of passion). Proof: the domain is for sale.

  9. Robert and Rosaria Atwater have maintained and contributed to their food blog for over a year with thoughtful food writing, incredible food photography, and fascinating recipes. Their following and audience continues to grow, kindly click on them, and enjoy

    Hi! My blog is What Would Cathy Eat? It’s unique in that it focuses specifically on heart-healthy food. But food that’s still spicy, adventurous and fun.
