Social Media Week

Social Media Week is in full swing in New York City.  This morning I participated in a flashmob hosted by Whole Foods and Foodspotting, where I cooked some of my signature dishes.  If you didn't get to the event this morning, there are still many upcoming talks and activities during the next few days. I'm looking forward to what The New York Times panel on The Future of Real-time Publishing has to say.  Check it out at 2 p.m on Thursday.

Social Media is so important to what's going on with food right now.  Between sites like Foodspotting, and the new site Foodily, I predict that the connection between what we eat and the web is only going to get stronger.  What social media sites do you use to share food-related content?

Foodspotting LA Guide - Everything from Korean dishes to Persian Food

I have finally finished my LA guide on Foodspotting. I really like Foodspotting as it makes finding and sharing food recommendations easier: Instead of reading and writing reviews of restaurants, you can share photos of specific foods you recommend and see what's good wherever you go. Here are my top 10 Favorite Dishes in Los Angeles. Everything from Korean food to Pizza, and of course it wouldn't be a complete LA guide without a persian dish. The first person that spots 5 of the 10 dishes wins a signed New American Table cookbook along with the Marcus Samuelsson Badge. Enjoy and good luck!
