Wednesday Fun #89 - Introducing "Accidental Hedonist"

First of all, isn't that a great name? Accidental Hedonist. Awesome.

This is a more-than-just-recipes sort of blog. Kate Hopkins also writes about restaurants, beer, whiskey/whisky (her book, 99 Drams of Whiskey just came out!), and food politics. She also has guest bloggers who do extended (I want to say year or half year long) stints with (I think weekly) regular posts.

She's currently exploring more about beer, beer styles, beer judging, beer making - both industrial and home brewing, etc. and thinking about writing a second book, this time about beer.

While not as practical/useful as some other food blogs out there, Kate's is definitely one that makes me think. She talks about food politics, the FDA, foodie/gourmet, price v. quality, food snobbery, the food distribution system, Big Food, etc. Check her out; I think you might like Accidental Hedonist.
