It’s one thing to be able to find cheap food. It’s another to be able to make a decent meal out of it. That’s where Billy Vasquez, “The 99 Cent Chef”, comes in. The 99 Cent Chef is a fun, carefree blog about eating, recipes, and food videos in Los Angeles, though out of towners will enjoy the site, too. The Chef takes the haute out of cuisine, creating recipes for the people. He cooks with ingredients costing about 99.99 cents, or less. He also finds great meal deals throughout Los Angeles — featuring playful prose, delicious photos and clever videos.

Blog URL: http://www.blogchef.net/

Hello and welcome to BlogChef. My name is Bobby and I’m from Michigan. This website was started in late January 2007 and continues to grow. I started this website because I love cooking food, writing about food, and taking pictures of food. I will be posting mostly recipes, but also other articles relating to the culinary world in general. I will be posting articles as often as I can.

A lot of the recipes on this site came from various sources. I do not claim most of these recipes as my own. I try to post recipes that I have found over recent years that are nothing but the best of the best. If you have a recipe that you think would go great on this site, along with a digital camera, and would like to make a guest post. [Read more]

What To Know To Become A Chef

food, drink, beverage

There are some who believe that becoming a chef and being successful is not such a difficult task. However, it is not always easy to become a chef, but even after one reaches that point, it is often still very stressful. A good chef is the one that combines perfect skills with talent and creativity, not one that cooks mechanically. Becoming a chef usually takes a lot of time, more years being necessary, so one should be sure to be ready to spend a lot of time doing this job. Being a chef implies continuous work and innovation so the learning process never ends when it comes to this field of work. This is the most important aspect that one should keep in mind when deciding whether a chef career is the proper one or not.

First of all, if you have decided to choose a career in this field, you should try and gain as much experience as possible by working in restaurants, even if you’re not necessarily in a cook position. You will have many things to learn by working in a position that is somehow related to cooking. Also, you should find training programs for chefs as you will need certifications of your abilities. Schooling for becoming a cook can take up to four years, so you have to find accredited schools that have great results in the culinary formation of the individuals they train.

Keep in mind that there are many types of cooking jobs that one can do so think about what fits you best. If you will have to do jobs that require lower skills than the ones you have, you should not automatically reject them. Remember that you need practical experience in the field before being able to be hired as a respected chef. Also, you can always advance in position, no matter what the job is you begin with.

The American Culinary Federation represents a great source when you want to learn what skills, experience and schooling training you need to have in order to become a chef. Take some time and get information about these topics as it will be of great help when you want to project your career evolution.

If you not only want to be a chef, but a great one as well, then you should make sure you are always up to date with the latest information in the culinary area. Don’t underestimate the importance of information and creativity and also choose the proper specialization for you and being a chef will be enjoyable and will give you the satisfaction of doing something you love.

If you are unfamiliar with Simply Recipes, please allow me to take a moment to introduce you to the site. The first thing you should know is that Simply Recipes is a blog or a personal website, created and maintained by me, Elise Bauer.

We invite you to try the recipes, and if you would like, leave constructive feedback in the comments. Do you have a recipe binder or box of recipe index cards? Think of this site as our family sharing the recipes in our recipe binder with you. As we cook the recipes multiple times, we often think of improvements and update the recipes. So keep in mind that what you see here is a work in progress. [Read more]

Technicolor Kitchen

I started blogging in English in November, 2006; all the recipes posted here have been prepared, styled and photographed by me. I have no professional training, nor work with anything related to food, but have learned a lot trying, reading, researching and with the help of my blogger friends. I’m addicted to cookbooks and magazines, too. Most of my posts are sweet recipes, because I think desserts are the best part of a meal. I’ll choose a fruit dessert over a chocolate one anytime and citrus flavors are my thing – give me anything lemony and you’ll put a huge smile on my face. [Read more]

Cook Blog

Food, drink, cuisine

Blog URL: http://www.acookblog.com/

I’m a painter, mostly, though since January of 2009 I’ve been the Food & Drink writer (now editor) for Chronogram, an arts and culture magazine in the Hudson Valley. I wrote the entry on Basque cuisine in the Food Cultures of the World Encyclopedia, published in 2011 by Greenwood and edited by Ken Albala. Beginning with the Fall 2011 issue, I’m a contributor to Edible Hudson Valley.  I’ve been writing this blog since early 2006; the previous version called itself “an improvised, intermittent, and utterly unscientific gastronomy journal by an artist who should probably be painting right now.” That’s still true, though I’m more serious about food than I was when I started this project.

I am a food blog

Blog URL: http://www.iamafoodblog.com/

I love all food. It’s my passion. My husband, friends, and family know this, so I get a lot of cookbooks as presents. I am a Food Blog is where you’ll find me cooking up a storm: dishes inspired by our favourite restaurants, takeout, or just whatever is in the fridge. I love all food, so it’d be hard for me to choose a favourite, but I have a soft spot for noodles, bacon, potatoes and breakfast foods. Hmm…noodle, bacon potato omelette, anyone? You can find many interesting recipes in my blog. [Read more]
