Top Multicultural Bloggers You Should Follow

At Spice Road Market, we love to celebrate the diverse cultures and cuisines that are found in the United States. There are so many rich flavors, cooking techniques, and unique ingredients found in multicultural cuisine, and we love showcasing those recipes to our community so that they can be loved and appreciated by all.

 

Below, we’ve compiled a list of 9 of our favorite multicultural food bloggers, categorized by cuisine (Asian, South Asian, and Latin American). These bloggers have a passion for food and for writing, and they’ve created delectably mouthwatering content honoring their diverse lives. All we can say is: we hope that you love their blogs as much as we do.

Asian Cuisine

1. No Recipes

Marc Matsumoto created No Recipes in 2007 so people can prepare a variety of amazing Japanese foods despite different backgrounds and skill levels. The blog features many Japanese recipes such as Hokkaido-style miso ramen (pictured above), oyakodon, and miso glazed eggplant. Since Marc never cooks based on a recipe, he hopes to teach others about new ingredients and proper techniques, so they will also have the confidence to experiment and cook with “No Recipe.” He includes a number of fascinating recipes such as soy milk panna cotta with black sugar sauce and curried lamb karaage.

2. My Korean Kitchen

My Korean Kitchen began in 2006 as a platform for Sue Pressey to teach and share her love of Korean food and Korean fusion food with the world. Her blog includes recipes for kimchi jigae (pictured above) and kimchi fried rice. Amazing recipes for lesser known dishes such as jjolmyeon (spicy chewy noodles) and hotteok (sweet pancakes) are also included. For those who do not have access to Korean ingredients where they live, Sue has her own online Korean grocery store on her site.
