Chicago Food Bloggers is a database and resource for Chicago-based bloggers who write about food, recipes, restaurants, wine, cocktails, health and nutrition, markets, food policy, and other aspects of food culture. We provide a way for bloggers to reach new readers while connecting with one another online and in-person.


All food bloggers based in Chicago, the surrounding suburbs, and Northwest Indiana are welcome to join Chicago Food Bloggers. By joining, your blog will be listed in the Chicago Food Blogger directory and you will have access to online resources, meetups, dinners, and more. Join today.


The popularity of food blogging has also created opportunities for public relations, sponsorship, and advertising efforts on behalf of for-profit companies, products, and restaurants. This can create an ethical gray area that each food blogger navigates in his or her own way.

We encourage all Chicago Food Bloggers to clearly state their personal ethical codes on their blog. At a minimum, you should always disclose any freebies or gifts that you write about. Honesty is a necessity.

The ideas and opinions posted by individual food bloggers do not necessarily reflect those of Chicago Food Bloggers or other members and vice versa.
