Food Porn Aggregator: Punchfork

Cleverly designed blog aggrigators seem to be all the rage - you know, like Pinterest or Tastespotting. Well folks, we have another one for food blog porn, and it's called Punchfork.

Punchfork pre-selects popular food blogs to be on their searchable list. So far they only have 36 and it's a who's who of the food blogosphere. It's folks like The Pioneer Woman, David Lebovitz, Smitten Kitchen, 101 Cookbooks, Matt Bites, Cannelle et Vanille, and Lottie + Doof. We would gather that the 80/20 rule applies here that if you have the top 20% of the food blogs out there, you've got the majority of what's happening out there in home cooking trends.

Punchfork categorizes the ingredients and you can select a landing page for the recipe but if you want the preparation instructions, you need to click through to the blog where it was originally published. There's a nice Twitter feature that if you click on the recipe to tweet it, it will automatically tag the blog's author.
