Food Bytes #1

Food Bytes #1

Food Bytes #1: 10 tasty blog posts from international food bloggers from February 26 to March 2 2012.

For some time now I’ve been looking at adding to the Foodie Roundup series of posts that go out on a Sunday, spotlighting ten blog posts from Irish food bloggers (or food bloggers based in Ireland). So today, I’m kicking off Blog Bytes, which is similar in style, only it looks at food blogs outside of Ireland for recipes, opinion pieces and the other tasty treats that you would find in the usual Foodie Roundup.

So, for Saturday 3rd March and the first of the Food Bytes reading digest, here’s ten posts from food bloggers outside of Ireland from Saturday 25th February to Friday 2nd March.

That’s it for the first installment of Food Bytes. This blog post series will continue each Saturday through to the end of the year and we’ll see how it goes. I reckon that gives me about 400+ blog posts to shine more of a light on as well. Don’t forget that Foodie Roundup #40, the roundup of Irish food blogs goes out tomorrow morning for your Sunday read. With a Saturday and Sunday digest each week, I think that will be enough for now, don’t you?

Epic Meal Time – Extreme Eating

Every time I run into one of the lads involved in the theatre company, I’m reminded to check out Epic Meal Time. It’s not that these videos aren’t safe for work, they should be fine. But if you’re on a diet, have a fear of fat, cholesterol, bacon, calories or eating in general, then these might not be for you. Epic Meal Time “make your dreams come true and then we eat them.” Morgan Spurlock hasn’t a patch on these guys.

Take a peek…
