Behind the Blog: Ithaca's Food Web

We're taking a break from our regular podcast series to introduce you to some of the other local food bloggers who have been making names for themselves in the Ithaca food community. We've been lucky enough to get to know a few of these people over the past year and we're excited to share their stories with you.

This time we're talking with Alison Fromme, creator of the blog Ithaca's Food Web, which is a uniquely hyperlocal resource for news stories on food-related issues in Ithaca and Tompkins County. Alison writes about everything from local cooking trends and farming updates to broader topics of food safety and the ongoing debates over natural gas drilling and its potential effects on agriculture in our area. She also has the best calendar of food-related events in Ithaca we've seen.

If you missed it, you can also listen our first "Behind the Blog" podcast for our chat with Amy from the Eggs on Sunday cooking blog. We'll have another episode in this special "Behind the Blog" series in a couple weeks, as well as more ongoing updates on the local food scene here on our website. For continuing updates on everything we're doing, be sure to follow us on Twitter and on Facebook. We'd also love to hear from you directly: write a comment on the blog, leave a message on our voicemail line 607-216-8624 (607-21-MUNCH), or send an email with your thoughts to: feedback [at] eatingithaca [dot] com.

Have you taken our Eating Ithaca Audience Survey yet? We're taking time to make improvements to our site and we'd love to know what you think about what we're doing. It should only take 5 minutes for you to participate, and everyone who completes the survey is eligible to be entered in our drawing to win one of two $25 gift cards for Ithaca Coffee Company. The more people we hear from, the better we'll know what you enjoy about Eating Ithaca, so please CLICK HERE TO TAKE OUR SURVEY and thanks for your help!
