Slideshows Are on the Way!

Over the past year, we have posted countless photos of food onto the site, and now we are starting to use some of these pictures in slideshows (via the Boston Restaurant Blog within our site) as a way to categorize some of them.

Our first slideshow centers around five of the best dishes of 2011 (so far), including an amazing chocolate cake, an unusual cheese dish, and one of the best pizzas in Boston.

Keep checking for more food photo slideshows over the coming weeks, as we will surely be posting more of them to the blog within the site very soon!

This Issue's Feature

Online Food Discussions

The Boston area is full of people who know their food, including restaurant owners, chefs, food bloggers, media people, and restaurant critics. Over the past year or so, we have hosted a number of live online food discussions, including a panel of such folks who chat with us (and our viewers) about everything from breakfast to BBQ.

As of now, we tend to have a new food chat once every month or so, including a few new ones coming up this fall. When we do, please join us in the discussion, and feel free to ask our panel members some questions. And if you have a good idea for a discussion topic, please contact us to let us know!
