I recently discovered Orangette, a food blog by Molly Wizenberg. Wizenberg melds food writing, journaling, and memoir, the way so many great food writers do, and posts beautifully composed photographs to boot. Someone got wise to her skills before me, because she got a book deal out of it. A Homemade Life, Wizenberg’s food memoir, will be released on March 3, 2009 (by Simon & Schuster, natch).
In addition to being a fun blog, Orangette has an amazing recipe index and the most thorough and thoughtful “About/FAQ” section I’ve ever come across (including Wizenberg’s musing on photography, the practice of blogging, and an eater’s guide to Seattle).
In addition, Wizenberg writes a monthly food column for Bon Appétit magazine called “Cooking Life.”
