    Hi All.

    Curious as to where everybody on here finds, reads, obtains new cooking info?  Stuff about trends, new techniques, new ingredients?  I know about Food Arts and obviously this site. 

    Thanks!

    Jason

    Buying cookbooks. Usually as they are released.

    One other magazine that I didn't see anyone list is Plate... plateonline.com... similar to Food Arts, free to culinarians.

    EDIT: I apologize after I posted this I noticed that @cheflayne  posted a link to the site also

    Also not mentioned; 'So good' magazine. It's a pastry magazine but it's really well done. Specifically done for professionals.

    What style of food do you do? There have been a lot of great cookbooks released recently.

    As well as the ones already mentioned, I love the personal ones written by individual chefs. Top three are: Kitchen Ninja, ChadZilla and LineCook.

    They all haven't been updated for a while but the ideas, insight and anecdotes are fantastic for a shoemaker like myself! /img/vbsmilies/smilies/smile.gif
