Editor's Blog: Recipes Online - Rik Recommends 47 Places to Find Good Eatin' on the Web

 

Compendia

 

Recipe Zaar: If you can't find something good here, you're just not trying.

 

And then there are recipe sites that are simply compendiums of recipes from a variety of sources - and they can be very capacious, indeed.

 

About: Food & Drink
The About.com site is a vast resource, and its Food & Drink section is not only strong on good ol' American eats, but in ethnic cuisine, as well. This site is gigantic; it includes videos, how-tos, gear discussions, and 25 major subsections - and each subsection also has its own subsections.
Focus: Broad range; good ethnic-food representation
Sample: Greek Sweet Easter Bread: Tsoureki Paschalino

 

Free Food Recipes
This site contains pretty much what its name suggests. It's ethnic selection is unusally strong, with 52 diffferent categories, including Bengali and Pennsyvanian Dutch.
Focus: Broad range; good ethnic-food representation
Sample: Koenigsberger Klops

 

Recipe Zaar
Another biggie: "211,000 recipes - 73,000 photos - 14,000 cookbooks." Plus, there's menu-planning advice and active forums with world-wide membership.
Focus: Broad range; good ethnic-food representation
Sample: Baseisei (Fijian Taro Salad)

 

YumYum.com
Another more-is-better site, with "over 20,000 easy to follow free recipes for your enjoyment," all arranged is a dizzing array of categories.
Focus: Broad range; good ethnic-food representation
Sample: Kadin Budu (Ladies' Thighs' Croquettes)

Rik,

You omit one of the best family of sites: http://www.americastestkitchen.com/ and the associated cooks.illustrated and cooks.country sites.

These are terrific for the novice and the pro.

Now if only I could get my Mac to do some cookin'! I guess it's good enough that it can help me get to these sites!
