Con­nect locally with other food­ies in your area.

IT’S all too easy to get caught in the rut of cook­ing the same recipes week- in, week- out.

Break out of the flavour­less rou­tine by in­dulging in some culi­nary in­spi­ra­tion on­line.

Tas­ma­nian gourmet food­ies, pas­sion­ate cooks, feisty re­view­ers, pro­fes­sional chefs and as­sorted geeky gas­trophiles are net­work­ing on­line to of­fer a smor­gas­bord of de­li­cious ideas at your fin­ger­tips. Browse around and you will soon pick up tips on how to use un­usual del­i­ca­cies in ev­ery­day cook­ing; from truf­fles to stone fruit, quail eggs to sus­tain­able seafood, and how to do a slow- food gourmet spin on what may seem an oth­er­wise sim­ple dish.

From na­tional net­works, in­clud­ing Food­buzz, Chowhound and eGul­let, you can also con­nect locally with other food­ies in your area for ad­vice, read re­views, seek rec­om­men­da­tions and en­gage in dis­cus­sion at Eat­ingTassie.com.
