Foodsite Magazine is not dedicated to making fine cooks finer!
Instead, Foodsite Magazine aims to help the cooking-challenged avoid dependence on others due to lack of cooking knowhow. We concentrate on quick breakfasts, portable lunches and “good-4-u” night meals.
We started as Food Site of the Day in 2001. At the same time, we never forgot that the history of all countries lives on in their food. At that time it seemed suddenly our early hunters and gatherers were galloping into our future and taking us with them on a wonderful electronic journey of learning, tasting, sharing new foods and new food combinations.
The web now connects us with both recipes and hard-to-get ingredients, and we can even take culinary vacations! With readily available web translation, Foodsite Magazine explains separate foods, their history, their nutrition, with suggestions of “go-withs,” serving ideas and foodsites with recipes.
