There are thousands of cooking blogs -- we bring you highlights from the best.

Inspired by the food blog French Laundry at Home, Ryan Adams resolved to cook every recipe from Fergus Henderson's The Whole Beast: Nose to Tail Eating and blog about it. What we love about this blog -- aside from the fascinating photographs of different types of offal and the author's wry humor -- is the fact that Ryan details his failures right along with his successes. (When Baked Celeriac and Eggs goes horribly awry, we're privy to every gruesome detail.) Although Ryan's posts alone are worth a visit, frequent guest posts, like the recent one on kholodets, keep things lively. We hope you'll check it out!

Ryan is also one of the sweetest guys you could meet (well, only online, so far, in my case)

I love the book Nose To Tail but did not know about this blog. Thanks A and M for this reciprocity feature- I really love learning about all these great blogs previously unknown to me!

Our pleasure. It's a great excuse for us to dig around and find great blogs we didn't know about before!

So, you are going to give us an offal theme to play with right? Trippa alla romana is right up my alley. And if I could just find a lamb stomach and "lights" I could probably do a haggis. Seriously though, I did indulge in a delicious marrow bone at DBGB two weeks ago....Bring it on!

It's definitely on our minds.

I listened to the blogger on NPR some weeks back, apparently he ran into a hitch on locating "woodcock" for the Fergus Henderson project? What do you substitute, when you have a game warden and a citation book lookin' at you funny?

Pierino, I'm set on flying over to the UK if necessary. I'm going to see this book through, all the way!
