Remember when I said I had a supertopsecret project? Well, it’s a secret no more. About two months ago I launched Punk Domestics, a community site for people obsessed with, er, interested in DIY food. My goal was to create a space where I could aggregate and promote all of the great content being published out there by people who were getting their hands dirty in the kitchen making jam, canning, pickling, making cheese, curing meats and more. I firmly believe that, though these activities have had a recent flush of popularity, they are more than fads and are more important to modern life than ever before.
The idea is somewhat akin to Tastespotting or FoodGawker: Users contribute by adding a post that includes an image, headline, description and link back to the original content. Users of the site can navigate out to a huge variety of content focused on their interests, collected by tags. Simple, right?
So won’t you put on your best apron and join us? Feel free to contribute teasers if you’ve got some great blog posts out there; follow us on Facebook or Twitter; or sign up for the newsletter for a chance to win a copy of Vanessa Barrington’s fabulous new book, DIY Delicious. Trust me, you want a copy.
