Around the interwebs: The best of 2010 recaps begin

Posted By on Mon, Dec 6, 2010 at 2:24 PM

Around this time of year, we get inundated by lists from the media chronicling the best stuff of the year. These lists are great - for us in the media that is. Why? They tend to draw a lot of page views, they're easy as hell to put together, and therefore don't require a ton of work at a time of year we're all feeling a little holiday-stupid-and-lazy.

Some of the lists are kind of throwaways, but I've come across a few today that have some pretty cool stuff.

Longform.org has a fantastic list of the best long form stories of the year
. There's a great food section, as well as tons of other must-read stories.

The Atlantic has a story about the top-10 food stories of the year
. I thought this was going to be a list of links to other stories - the most important food stories written - but instead it's a series of blurbs about the topics themselves. It's got a lot of food policy, and acts as a nice primer for folks who want to catch up with what everyone's talking about.

There's no shortage of Best Cookbooks of 2010 lists. The Huffington Post rounds them up, and culls an overall best 25 list from those other lists.

Eater has an ongoing gift guide, as does Ruth Reichl at ruthreichl.com. Expect more whiz-bang immersion circulators and the like from Eater, and more "gentle little Burrino that tastes like butter" (she's talking about dried beans) from Ruth.
