Earlier this month, an article of mine talking about the amazing changes that have come about in online kosher food circles was featured in the Jewish Press.  Even in the brief time since I published Quick & Kosher - Recipes from the Bride Who Knew Nothing in 2007, there has been a revolution in the way people cook, eat and learn about food. Food is now online.  But I have to say, I'm not really surprised. The Web has widened people's horizons in all kinds of ways, why not food? With so much out there, though, it's hard to know what's what. As demand for reliable info has grown, online stores like Kosher.com have become lifestyle destinations. Websites are the new gatekeepers of kosher cooking, filling a role that was once the exclusive domain of bubbies and, later, kosher cookbooks. Now I know some argue that these changes will be "bad for the Jews," but  I believe that the Internet will actually help us keep traditions while moving us forward into an exciting and tasty future.

If you haven't seen the article, I hope you'll check it out. You can find the article here.

What do you think? How has the Web changed the way you cook and eat?
