Every day it seems there are more and more food blogs popping up online, and we all certainly have our favorites. But there's a new kid on the block that deserves a little attention. Meet The Kitchen Generation. The thing that first caught our eye with this blog was its creators. Three of them are in college, one still in high school, the other a young freelance writer and photographer. The creators all have food blogs of their own that they began in their teens and have continued to upkeep while in school, but they decided to join forces on this new project after "meeting" each other online and discovering many common interests. Kamran Siddiqi notes, "We’ve all fallen in love with food: creating it, writing about it, photographing it, blogging about it and of course- eating it!"
Logistically, with busy school and social schedules, it's difficult to fathom how each contributor is pulling this off. But they have daily meetings on Skype to brainstorm and organize content and rely heavily on to-do lists and scheduling calendars. Our conclusion? They're pulling it off with incredible talent, imaginative content, beautiful photos, and an exciting energy that you just don't find everyday. We're excited and know you will be, too.
Their goal with the site? To inspire everyone to get into the kitchen and most of all, to have fun. You can see this playfulness already with the interviews, Flickr groups that encourage photo sharing, and simple How-to Posts.
