Eatocracy is Ripe!

CNN's new food blog, Eatocracy, officially launched today! But if you've been stalking the site like I have, you probably noticed the site was, for the most part, up last night.  I decided to get in the spirit of things and do a quick iReport explaining my obsession with food for the launch of the freshest source for all things food.



You can check out my complete report here, hope you enjoy it!

As for the site, I'm soo excited!  It seems to be what Huffington Post Food sought out to be (love you HuffPo, but your food section is a bit dry).  I love the fresh, colorful look of Eatocracy, it looks delicious and its inanimate!  These are a few cool tidbits that caught my eye:
  • I like how the site is divided into news, bite, sip, make, think..clever, huh?  News obviously delivers food news, but one thing that I think sets Eatocracy above the bar is that it delivers local and international food news.  As for the other sections you can find recipes, dining tips, reviews, recommendations, and other food blogs. 
  • The Featured Blogger and Eat Like A Local sections which are designed to showcase the awesome food bloggers and regional cuisine.
  • For those who enjoy food porn, but need something aside from foodgawker or Tastespotting, check out Eatocracy's Lick the Screen section.  You can submit your own photos by adding them to Eatocracy's Flickr pool.
  • The Eatcyclopedia on the left sidebar, displaying food and culinary terms for you to build your food knowledge.
These are just a few of the things that I feel sets Eatocracy apart from other food blogs hosted by a parent news organization. I think Eatocracy is well designed, organized, and best of all it offers amazing content and will only get better with time.  So if you haven't yet, check it out!
