From the passions of food lovers everywhere, the Food Network was born… along with TV shows like Top Chef and Rick Bayless – Mexico One Plate At A Time, a renewed interest in cookbooks, food magazines such as Bon Appétit, Saveur and Cook's Illustrated, the popularity of farmers' markets like the Saturday Organic Market, food websites like Chowzter’s Foodie Hub, food blogs like Nick Gilman's Good Food in Mexico City, stores like Williams-Sonoma and of course rock star celebrity chefs. Call it the culinary boom that’s not about to slow down anytime soon.
