I haven't made one since last year, and I was feeling the absence of such a community on LJ. While there are some recipe communities, many of the posts tend to be of the "add a can of cream of mushroom soup" variety. Not that there's anything wrong with that, hey, comfort food is in, but I was looking for something a little more esoteric. Necessity being the mother of invention, I present the ljgourmet community. I made a real effort to link to other food/recipe LJs in the profile, so it can serve as a one-stop shop for those looking to add new communities of that sort to their Friends lists.
It still needs a bit more work, but it's coming along. :) Why, yes, I am aware that it's very peach. On purpose, even.
