Check out our full list here and start following some of the most influential food bloggers on the fastest growing social networking platform on the web.


Does alcohol really cook out? This simple question has been asked time and again, usually with the same answer: alcohol evaporates. We dug a little deeper and found out that this isn't necessarily true. In fact, a study revealed that up to 75% of alcohol remains on the plate.

So why do chefs keep perpetuating this myth? Read our special investigation to get all the answers.


Panettone, that flavorful Italian bread made with candied fruits and raisins, is the darling of Christmas. But Italy has another contender that's hoping to get its spot in the limelight: pandoro.

It's name literally translates to ''golden bread'' and it's tall, buttery and delicious. Aside from having a different shape, pandoro doesn't contain candied fruit and raisins, which makes it ideal for some foodies.  

Find out the history behind this tempting Christmas sweet and how to enjoy it during the holidays.
