Okay–this isn’t just about the Food Gays. But the pizza video two blog reviews deep is my absolute fave part of this post.
Vancouver has the most restaurants per capita in the entire country. (Seriously.) So it would seem appropriate that we also have an enormous abundance of really great local food blogs. This small list is just that–small. But below are 6 fantastic blogs that you should definitely check out if you love food–and I know you do. (Who doesn’t?!)
Get ready to drool and cook and taste and love.
To Die For Vancouver
This incredible Vancouver blog is brought to lucky us by Erin Ireland, and is a “discerning guide to food worth living for.” She provides her visitors with restaurant reviews, food guides, recipes, and food-related event information in and around the Vancouver area.
Born out of her love for making amazing banana bread, To Die For is a great place to read about what’s going on in the fine-dining foodie realm. Visit the WEBSITE for more inspiration.
The Food Gays
Jeremy and Adrian (AKA: the Food Gays) launched their blog in 2012. They’re Vancouverites who love food, photography, and social media. Their website is home is tons of awesome and inspiring recipes, which you can access HERE.

Natalie Browne is from the Fraser Valley, and launched her blog less than 2 years ago. The website began as a Christmas gift from her husband, that ultimately allowed her to focus all of her food creativity into one, delicious place to visit.
A stay-at-home mom and self-taught chef, Natalie is the perfect portrait of the classic foodie, and her recipes are inventive and generally simple to recreate. Two such recipes will be featured in Vegetarian Comfort Foods, a recipe book by local author Jennifer Browne that will be released on August 4th of this year. (Pre-order HERE.)
Visit Kitchen, Uncorked and get ready to fall in love with absolutely everything Natalie posts.
This blog is just as much about delicious food as it is about the visual art. Jennifer Pallian lives in Vancouver, and has been featured on Huffington Post, Bon Appetite Magazine, Alive, Flare, Chatelaine, Reader’s digest, Best Health, and National Geographic. (Just to name a few–you know, no biggie.)
“Foodess was a finalist in Saveur Magazine’s 2013 “Best Food Blog Awards” in the Best Original Recipes category; was named one of the Huffington Post’s “Top Ten Food Bloggers” and “Best Health Tweeters“; was nominated for ‘Best Weblog About Food & Drink’ in the 2013 and 2012 Canadian Weblog awards; the ‘Best of Vancouver’ Food Blogs in 2011; and was featured on Fine Cooking magazine’s “Best of the Blogs” and Saveur magazine’s “Best of the Web.””

Lindsay is Vegan
This Vancouver cutie pie is indeed vegan–and has been since her 2010 birthday! Her website’s homepage features dozens of interesting vegan recipes (complete with photographs), and her blog posts often feature content such as how to cut your grocery bill, ways to make your transition to veganism less difficult, and even local restaurant reviews.
Visit her website HERE for more information.
The Vegan Project
I won’t lie, this one’s a personal favourite. They donated a copy of their ebook to a contest I was running last year, and I was incredibly jealous of the winner!
Present and smiling each and every year at VegFest Vancouver, these girls are a whiz in their vegan kitchens. Bridget Burns founded the Vegan Project, and between her and Zoe Peled, they’ve turned an ethical and practical idea into a passionate business they love. (And so do we!)
In 2013 they had a boy (eek!) join their team, and their big, green, delicious project only got better. Check their WEBSITE out for some seriously amazing vegan recipes and other fun stuff OR see them in action on Global News below:
