d*s diversion: foodies


if there's anything i love as much as (or more than) design, it's food. lately i've been consuming chef's books like there's no tomorrow (i have a particular fondness for anthony bourdain) and reading food blogs like they're going out of style (chocolate and zucchini is my dream blog). but if we're talking about food, there's one type of food i love among all others: fish. i could eat fish for breakfast, lunch and dinner (i even love fish designs for the home- maybe fish can become the new birds?). tuna will always be my favorite, along with salmon, monkfish and cod. i loved peeking in the window of fishes in amsterdam and it got me thinking about some great summer food blogs. if you need a little design diversion check out: chocolate and zucchini, afullbelly, slashfood, accidental hedonist and gastronome. do you guys have a favorite food blog you love to check? everyone can use a good summer recipe or two...

Never would have guessed you for being a fish person. Have you ever had any freshwater fish? Such as Walleye, Pike, Bluegill, Crappie, Catfish, or Bass. I do a lot of fishing. :)

pike and bass. mmmm...mmm.



(i used to be a vegan so the fact that i just wrote mmm..mmm after pike and bass kind of creeps me out. it's so hard to kick that feeling. but i guess i'm glad i still have it because i try to keep living things out of my diet as much as possible)

Not to be a downer, but as recently reported, growth of sushi bars 'driving tuna to extinction'.

So if you like fish, use this guide.

Try Cookingforengineers.com. It's a fun way to put together recipes, and the BBQ rib recipe is so simple and delish!

My favorite is thefoodwhore.com. Also, shewhoeats.blogspot.com is usually interesting.

Choclate and Zucchini is my all time favorite, too!

So, is it tacky to plug my own blog?


It's relatively new, and incorporates both food and design for kitchen and tabletop with a modern twist. I always have pretty, inspiring pictures. Let me know what you think!

Gotta second the comment on being a mindful seafood consumer. Check out seafoodwatch.org for info on what fish you should eat and what fish need us to give them a break so they can rebuild their populations and survive.

There are some very ethical fishers out there. You can choose to support the folks who are doing the right thing or those who are not. I'm sure that if you love fish, you don't want to be responsible for driving them from the planet...
