List of international food blogs takes readers on culinary world tour

From Algeria to Vietnam, Saveur magazine has released a list of 55 "must-read" food blogs to follow, written from every corner of the world.

Many of the blogs are written in English and helmed by English-speaking expats living abroad and documenting their epicurean adventures.

EatingAsia, for example, is helmed by an American husband-and-wife team living in Malaysia: wife Robyn Eckhardt writes the text, while husband David Hagerman shoots the photos. Posts focus on street food and authentic local fare. Eckhardt is also a prolific travel and food writer for The New York Times, Food & Wine and Saveur.

Though the list is sprinkled with a host of the usual suspects -- popular bloggers like Australia's What Katie Ate, as well as France's Chocolate and Zucchini and David Lebovitz -- it also provides links to blogs from unexpected places and cuisines.

AZcookbook.com, for instance, is written by a woman living in California who hails originally from Azerbaijan which lies north of Iran. Foods are a mix of traditional Azerbaijani -- some of which are old family recipes -- and contemporary American dishes collected from cookbooks and magazines. Azerbaijani recipes include stuffed grape leaves or Yarpag Dolmasi, a staple on any Azerbaijani table, and Dushbere, a traditional meat-filled dumpling soup.

Other blogs from unexpected places include Palachinkablog.com from Serbia and Nyam Penh from Cambodia.

Meanwhile, Epicurious.com was named the Best Food and Beverage website in this year's Webby Awards, and Zagat released a comprehensive list of 140 foodies, chefs and restaurants to follow on Twitter last week.
