February 2006

Ack! Because of the schedule changes brought on by the Olympics, I totally missed tonight's episode of MasterChef (for Thursday, Feb. 22nd - the 4th day of the preliminaries).

If anyone watched and/or taped it, and has the ingredient list, can you let me know, either here in the comments, or by email to maki at makikoitoh dot com. I would really appreciate it - thanks!!

[Update:] I have the list now- thanks!

The latest brouhaha to hit the world of food blogs is this article in Food and Wine Magazine in which Pete Wells criticizes what he calls "cheese-sandwich meanderings".

My comments here are, of course, my opinion only, and my focus is on personal food blogs rather than food blog aggregators and the like.
