Pat Solley's delightfully wacky (and always tres intellectual) Web site devoted to every single tiny nuance of soup ... a must see. Pat's articles are loaded with historical esoterica, and you never know where they will lead you next. Superb recipes, as well.

Available on many newsstands (and free to culinary professionals!), Food Arts magazine is an excellent resource, especially for those with restaurant interests.

www.foodtv.com

www.penzeys.com

Penzeys has a huge assortment of spices available from all over the world, and offers great service over the Internet; again, chock-full of information on the Web and in their catalog. Nice database of spices and their origins.

www.engrish.com

A site crammed with countless examples of bad (but often poetic) English translations on foreign signage, food product labels, restaurant menus, and more. A real giggle-fest.

www.airlinemeals.net

Travelers send in revealing photos and descriptions (with ratings and very expressive reviews) of the meals they are served in-flight by a large number of international and national carriers: a real hoot.
