Of all the politically oriented food blogs out there, the Ethicurean is hands down my favorite. It's listed in the "food blogs we like" category, but in case you've never checked it out, here's why you should; it's timely and smart and it doesn't come across as self-righteous or snarky, as many other blogs of its ilk unfortunately do. The contributors take on the issues of the day and often go a bit deeper than what you might find in the newspaper. They also write about the pleasures of food. Sometimes taking a political stand also means cooking something tasty.
