These days, food blogs are a much rarer thing, than say a decade ago. Mostly these days, people flock to social media with pics and video to detail their restaurant experiences. For a who’s who of local social media foodies, see our Utah foodie influencer list. We still have a small number of Utah based food blogs though, and lets start with the obvious…
We’re far from shrinking violets so first and foremost we’d offer up ourselves as the very best food magazine in Utah – you can subscribe here and get every story as it happens, right to your mailbox. Also read about what makes this website tick here. O.k. enough hard sell, who else is out there?
These are just some of the food bloggers in Salt Lake City we know of. If we’ve overlooked your site (oh noes!) drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will happily list your website for free (listed blogs must cover Utah food and beverage in some capacity). Blogs are listed alphabetically and ordered by active and defunct.
