Seattle: Obsession factor

Seattleites get into tweeting wars about which new burger joint is best, and locals here blog the pants off Portland: On The Times of London’s list of the top 50 food blogs in 2009, Molly Wizenberg (pictured) of Orangette nabbed the number 1 spot, with 3 other Seattle blogs listed—Portland got zip. This might explain the city’s cottage industry of bloggers turned cookbook authors, like Shauna James Ahern, whose Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef made The New York Times’ top 10 cookbooks of 2010.

Score: 9
