not strictly food of course, but the internet and home computers have played an immense role in the lives of foodies everywhere. Particularly for me. It feeds my wandering eye with recipes and articles. It expands my view and throws excitement into the most everyday travels. A veritable library at my fingertips. I have been able to map places to go, research, plan vacations, dream for the future, express myself and make dinner. These are all why I have chosen to put the internet in the 9th place of alphabetical honor.
