I’m sure they have a lot of great recipes, but who really has the time to read the gazillions of food blogs out there?

The “Foodista Best of Food Blogs Cookbook: 100 Great Recipes, Photographs, and Voices” (Andrews McMeel, $19.99) is being touted as the “first grassroots cookbook to emerge from social media.”

Foodista.com, an online cooking encyclopedia, invited bloggers from around the world to submit their best recipes for inclusion in the book. You’ll also find short profiles of the bloggers, who range from a marketing consultant for a Hollywood movie studio (“Chef Wally’s Baked Papaya”) to a Chinese Indonesian woman who lives in the Northwest (“Green Tea-Chocolate Steamed Cupcakes”).

Take the “best of” claim with a grain of salt. A New England clam chowder recipe from a dining editor/restaurant reviewer in New York calls, unfortunately, for canned potatoes. Ugh.
