The New York Times Food and Dining Section talked about Famous Recipes today in this article about the rise of populism in cooking. Bill Austin was mentioned as well as Famous Recipes.

In part the article said this:

Food for the People, Whipped Up by the People

Published: December 27, 2006

IF you wanted to appear in a food magazine or publish a cookbook in 2006, to star in a television cooking show or increase the traffic on your Web site, your best move was clear: don’t be a chef.

Food Network

DOES HER OWN CHOPPING Paula Deen, above, brought Southern home cooking to the Food Network. “The Taste of Home Cookbook” is one of the best-selling cookbooks of the year.

It was the year the people took back the food. Expertise was out: the Food Network edged aside chefs like Mario Batali to make room for home-cooking queens like Paula Deen, Sandra Lee and Rachael Ray. The most popular new food magazines and cookbooks were collections of recipes from real home cooks (or those who pretended to be), often stamped with the irresistible words “home-style,” “country” and “everyday.”

And one of the Web’s most popular independent food blogs, according to data collected by Alexa, a Web information company, was an undiscriminating one titled World Famous Recipes. Bill Austin of Scottsdale, Ariz., collects recipes and recipe links at famousrecipes.wordpress.com, presenting them unedited and without comment. The site’s motto: “Famous and not so famous recipes — who are you to decide? Who am I to decide?”

Today’s home cooks want to decide for themselves, or learn from others like them.

“When you have the Internet, who needs cookbooks?” said Amy Cisneros, an avid cook from San Antonio. “I look at all the different recipes, and then I make it my way.”
