About Our Panel: Once food bloggers opened up their kitchens to us, the web was never the same. Every meal was Instagrammed; home cooks got 6-figure cookbook deals; everyone knew what everyone else ate for lunch. But in this sharing of the food experience, food and cooking have emerged as the heart of the community experience of the web. What’s a food blog? What isn’t a food blog now, and how will food blogging shape what the web becomes in the future? Find out from three influential bloggers.
