The Food Network has just made what has to be the greatest event in the history of the relationship between food and the Internet. The Food.com beta site is up today, and so far it looks fantastic. To get in you'll have to register for the beta. Don't worry, everyone gets in, you just need to register. It's even free, so being a poor college student isn't an excuse.

Food.com's user interface is fantastic. You have a recipe box, in which you can save your favorite recipes for easy access. You can also submit your own recipes if you want, and finally get some credit for your culinary inventions. You're also free to search their massive database of recipes to your heart's content.
Whatever it is you're hungry for, chances are there's a recipe on Food.com for it. When this catches on (and it will, the Food Network has pull with all of the Internet-connected old ladies of the world) their recipe database will just get larger and larger. Already a search for 'fried chicken' nets me 2668 hits.

This user-created encyclopedia of foodstuffs is another step towards the Wikization of our world. When you give people a chance to share information, they do it eagerly. Food.com might end up with a few hundred thousand erroneous recipes, but I'm sure it will go down in history as the most comprehensive catalog of human taste in the world.
