The all-things-food-and-drink website The Daily Meal once again shows its savvy with a list of “10 Chef Blogs You Really Should be Reading.”

The editors explain: “Even though the initial burst of chef-bloggers has died down, plenty of well-known chefs continue to post regularly, and other culinary celebrities have taken up the proverbial pen as well. They use their blogs as ways to ruminate about the dining scene, post personal photos and stories, discuss their latest work, and stand on their soapboxes.”

Included on the list are Anthony Bourdain, Alton Brown, Stephanie Izard and Michael Chiarello. As a sample, Chiarello posts: “I had a few folks from my restaurant teams join me at Chiarello Family Vineyards to make verjus. Of course, my first question to the group was, “‘Do you know what verjus is?’ Happy to report they were able to explain that verjus is the pressed juice of unripened grapes.” He then goes on to detail the afternoon. Can we get an invite next time?
