Happy January, Foodspotters!
January is one of our favorite months at Foodspotting—we joined OpenTable a year ago in January 2013, we launched Foodspotting in January 2010, and the idea behind Foodspotting was conceived on January 2009:
On MLK Day 2009, I woke up with the idea to create a "field guide for food"—a visual, bird guide-esque handbook for discovering and identifying interesting dishes. Today, we're excited to announce that The Foodspotting Field Guide is on its way!
This interactive field guide, brought to you by Chronicle Books, features 75 dishes we thought everyone should know about—from Okonomiyaki to Saganaki—illustrated by photos from local spotters like you. (You'll hear from us personally if your photo was included!)
The Foodspotting book has been a labour of love, especially for April Walters, who was heading up community at Foodspotting while composing this beautiful book, so we hope you'll love it as much as we do! Thanks for making it possible.
If you want to be one of the first to get your hands on it...
More to come in 2014!
Alexa (and April)
