Food newsletters, recipes, TV cooking competition recaps, new burgers and pizzas to devour, and old favorites to celebrate. Gordon Ramsey has not one, but two shows on primetime, and the Food Network recently launched a brand new channel. Technorati lists 12,489 food blogs — there’s perhaps more food writing now than ever. It’s part of the reason some are speculating that food is the next bubble. But when you look at the number of people reading all this food writing, trading recipes, and gaping at some of the gorgeous food photography out there, it’s hard to believe this online interest in food is going anywhere anytime soon.
Amidst all this online eating, shutter clicking, and typing, there are some clear winners, bloggers whose sites everyone else compulsively measures their stats against. Who are the leaders in the field, from a quantitative standpoint? What are the 25 top food blogs online today?
In order to determine this, The Daily Meal’s editorial team waded through no fewer than 13 “Best Of” lists that named more than 130 food blogs and looked at the results in tandem with Google page rankings. Then we averaged the number of unique visitors throughout the past year using Compete.com’s monthly statistics.
Many sites won’t surprise you. Near the top: Serious Eats, 101 Cookbooks, and Simply Recipes. While stalwarts of the gastrorati like Eater and Grub Street were on the list, it might surprise you to see them below Smitten Kitchen and Cake Wrecks. Similarly, for all the love out there for sweets, and seeking out the next big dessert trend, it’s surprising too that renowned blogger and author, David Lebovitz didn’t rank higher, and that Dorie Greenspan didn’t make the cut at all. So who did make the list?
