One month has past since the launch of the new food venture from NotCot.org called Tastespotting. I visited it a few times already and it is worthy of my recommendations.
Tastespotting is a community for cooks and food lover. It is a place to discover new blogs and where people can become stars. You can give a star to the post that you like. There are already regulars that share their best readings.
Tastespotting is some kinds of aggregator of what is happening on food related blogs circle. Instead of having a computer or a team of editors that aggregate the information, Tastespotting asks people for submissions. Having on hand a great looking 250 x 250 pixel snapshot is vital to your popularity since Tastespotting puts a lot of emphasis on the visual element.
Because they want to highlight the right stuff, submissions are subject to approval by their voluntary editorial team. So do not be surprised if it takes few hours for your posts to show up on the home page.
If you do not know what to cook tonight, Tastespotting is a good place to start looking for inspiration.
I just submitted one of my recipes written in French, I keep you post if they accept (re: the language barrier).

You must be very patient if you submit your post to Tastespotting it is more than 45 hours since I submit mine. Still not showing.
I check regularly the home page and if you omit the posts by sarah (the editor) and Notcot (the publisher), there is less than 6 posts added by day. So I guess that even after being online for 1 month, they still need some fine tuning to their process if they wish to keep people interested.
