Digital Pen Pals Redefine a New Generation of Food Blogging

In a time gone by, a pen pal was defined by a series of letters between two individuals. In 2011, letters have all but been replaced by social networks, and the message is being shared globally. For the world of food this has translated into a large kitchen table of shared recipes and memories, and young food bloggers are finding their place at the table.

Aside from being students and working part-time jobs, the next line of food bloggers are sharing recipes, photos and interviews akin to those of gourmet magazines. It’s great content peppered with the voice, insights and enthusiasm of a new generation. Young bloggers attending different schools, living in different parts of the world, are connecting in a digital space to share a collective voice. Together they are redefining what it means to be pen pals… only this time it’s with a touch screen in one hand and a fork in the other.

The Kitchen Generation, a website recently launched by five young food bloggers, is a new destination for foodies of all ages. The bloggers involved, who are scattered across the United States and Canada, made an instant connection when they were introduced through blogging. A passion for food was the common denominator and their sense of the digital world tore down the traditional barriers of communication. With large communities built on their respective blogs, they collaborated to create a site that would bring together all of their unique talents. Through their collaboration, The Kitchen Generation has seized the opportunity to become a united voice for the appetites of their peers.

The bloggers behind The Kitchen Generation include:

For these young bloggers The Kitchen Generation is the next step of their journey, and we’re excited to be along for the ride.
