Yesterday’s Thanksgiving in July event at Reading Terminal Market wasn’t just about seeing celebrity chefs demonstrate dishes or raising funds for area food banks (as good a cause as that is). It was also intended to serve as the launch for Philly.com/Food, a new website devoting to all things eating, drinking, dining and delicious.

Former Inquirer writer Michael Klein is the driving force behind this new site and brings his many years of food knowledge and know-how to bear on its pages. What’s more, he has partnered with a variety of local organizations, establishments and writers to create a robust, varied and deeply useful site.

One of his content partners in this endeavor is Philly Homegrown (you know, us!). You’ll find all many of Homegrown profiles, blog posts and recipes under the Locavore tab of the site. Make sure to check back regularly to see new ideas for restaurants to try, farmers’ markets to visit and dishes to put on your dining room table.
