Here are some of the best Aussie food blogs out there to make your mouth water and your tummy rumble
If you love good food, it’s nice to be able to rustle up some semi-decent grub in your own kitchen. But if you’re having a love-hate relationship with yours at the moment, this blog will help you fall in love with it all over again. It offers a lot of great cooking tips, recipes, and ideas for picky eaters. The delicious photos don’t hurt, either.
Nigella Lawson is perhaps one of the best-known cooking personalities out there, but if you fear that you don’t have the cooking chops at Nigella’s level, Lorraine Elliott has got your back. Elliott is an Aussie-based food blogger who loves to bake and cook, and her delicious recipes and quirky blogging style have netted her blog over 300,000 unique visitors a month! She has gotten so well known that she even released her own memoir entitled “Not Quite Nigella” back in 2013.
Spices are the best tools of a great chef because they can make a dish pop. Well, this blog must contain a lot of some special kind of spice, because each picture and blog entry certainly pops off the page! Created by food lover Charlie Louie, Hotly Spiced is a website that comes directly from a love of food – and a way to get over the pain of rejection. Louie’s manuscript was rejected by a publisher because she wasn’t “famous enough” when she submitted it, so she went ahead and created a world-famous blog instead. Who’s laughing now, Mr. Publisher?
Calling something “orgasmic” puts it on a pretty high pedestal, but the pictures over at the Orgasmic Chef food blog don’t disappoint. The great thing about this particular blog is that it’s run by a self-taught cook, so it’s very relatable for those who might not be culinary masters themselves. Maureen Shaw posts quick and easy recipes for you to try at home, no matter how much experience you have in the kitchen.
Melbourne is a dynamic melting pot of different cultures, which means that you won’t ever find yourself short in terms of something and somewhere new to eat. With hundreds of choices, it can be difficult to know where to start, but this great Aussie blog takes out all the guesswork. The staff at The World Loves Melbourne has reviewed more than 400 restaurants to date.
So, if you’re feeling hungry, we don’t blame you! Whether you’re going out for a great dinner in Melbourne, or trying some of these delicious recipes at home, these five food blogs are for people who love good food.
