If you’re not utilizing the vast capabilities and expanses of the Internet to improve your versatility in the kitchen or your knowledge of the great restaurants around you, you’re clearly doing it wrong. On the restaurant side of things, you’re able to see just about every place that your locale has to offer, in this case Gainesville. But from the food aspect in general, if you want to hone your skills as a cook at home, there’s a site for that too. The food network is a great place to start first and foremost, they’ve got a lot of great content from recipes to heads up about new episodes of great shows that are coming down the pipe in the next few weeks. After being in New Orleans for the weekend and trying a lot of the local Cajun cuisine I know I’ve been looking at recipes for poboys and gumbo that I can make at home for myself.
