Allrecipes - Thousands of recipes submitted, rated and reviewed by readers. Most recipes are free, some collections are by subscription only. Searchable indices.
Alton Brown.com - Strange kitchen geek (who am I to judge?) who has merged obsessive need to know how food works with compulsive researching abilities and a questionable sense of humour. Recipes from his show, "Good Eats" are found on Food Network USA. Check out Rants and Raves for the intermittently updated culinary blog.
Anthony Bourdain - The man who brought us Kitchen Confidential and A Cook's Tour - bringing a little noir to the Food Network, along with humour, knowledge and a passion for food and cooking - and a genuine respect for those who work the front lines in the kitchens. Author of the "Les Halles Cookbook."
Barbara-Jo's Books to Cooks - Vancouver's own awesome cookbook store, with test kitchen and evening/weekend classes, often featuring chefs from many of Vancouver's notable restaurants, as well as world-famous imports.
Cooking.com - Part zine, part resource, part store. It reminds me a little of those fancy magazines that you never finish reading, but there's some good stuff to be found in there anyway.
Cook's Illustrated - Best cooking magazine in the business! Online version has a searchable recipe index/archive that will link right to the recipe for paid subscribers, and indicate the volume and issue for non-subscribers. I have every single issue.
Dining Out Guide - This is a Vancouver based resource. They don't seem to have a lot of restaurants listed yet, but they do have an e-newsletter that advises you of menu changes, food events in Vancouver, and offers discounts. I'm keeping an eye on it for now...
Epicurious - Recipe and information site extraordinaire.
Food Network - Recipes and show information for the American version of the Food Network.
Food Network Canada - Recipes and show information for the Canadian Version of the Food Network. Recipes for American shows are available by link to the American site.
Food Timeline - Interesting food-history page - I haven't thoroughly vetted it for authenticity, but it's got some interesting reading
Gode Cookery - If your interest in food history extends to food and recipes from the middle ages, this is a good resource. Plus, wonderful woodcut images!
Jamaican Recipes - A fairly extensive collection of recipes that contains much, much more than Jerk Chicken and Rice and Peas.
Mamta's Kitchen - Indian recipes from an Indian home cook living in Britain. Most of these look amazing, and I have tried a couple of recipes to great success. Mamta has an ezboard discussion forum linked to her site, and answers questions personally and promptly.
Nigella's BBC4 Recipe Collection - A selection of recipes from Nigella Lawson's various books and television shows.
PepperFool - Reader-submitted site full of recipes likely to kick your butt.
Recipe Source - This used to be called SOAR Online, which stands for Searchable Online Archive of Recipes. There is much duplication, but the indexing is very good. Unfortunately there is no ratings system, so you have to eyeball the recipes and pray.
Welcome to the brand new look for Always in the Kitchen. The new site was developed by Julie McGalliard, who sorted out my barely coherent ramblings about what I wanted, and developed the art and technical components for the entire site. Thanks, Julie!
The older pages will be brought into the new format gradually, as I find the time to do it. In the meantime, please be patient. Let me know if you find any broken links, or if the site is acting weird, though.
