Review by Debbie Mazo
If you have a passion for food, point your browser to FoodLines—an award-winning site full of the latest on food and nutrition. This well-organized web page is a rich resource of food information ranging from the latest on healthy eating to a helpful cooking guide for culinary beginners and intermediates. The site was born when the husband-and-wife-team of Nicholas and Selina Brudnicki searched unsuccessfully for Canadian-related food information on the web. Combining their background in food and technology, they have created a website that today reaches far beyond the borders of Canada and attracts food fans from around the world.
Foodlines, which has a simple but effective design, is neatly organized into sections that are frequently updated (you'll want to check back on a regular basis). In Food and Nutrition Headlines, learn about the role of vitamins, minerals, and supplements in your daily diet. In the Great Recipe Swap, check out the favorite recipes of the online star chefs or share your own family favorite with the international food crowd. This section also has a well-stocked archive full of tempting recipes including all types of appetizers (soup, salads, hors d'oeuvres), main entrees, and heavenly deserts like Orange Angel Cake. If you're planning a vacation abroad, explore the Favorite Restaurants Around the World, where you'll find a readers' list of restaurants that covers all corners of the globe from the tea houses of Hong Kong to the chic eateries of Paris.
Finally, if you're looking for hard-to-find food information, you'll definitely get on the right track in the Links to Other Sites of Interest. Divided into various categories, this section connects you with nutrition tools and analysis, international recipes, health and fitness information, and other cooking sites and ezines. It is this useful and exhaustive collection of food and nutrition links that definitely makes this site a winner in the Internet food community!
