You know the proliferation of food blogs has hit critical mass when former Reader staffer and Alternadad Neal Pollack gets into the game.

Pollack will be blogging about “Family Matters” on the nifty new Epicurious blog, which so far seems to mean reporting on little Elijah’s precocious food tantrums.

Pollack has august company, joining wine critic Natalie MacLean, cookbook author Melissa Clark, and our own Rick Bayless, who so far has contributed a quick guide to eating in various Mexico City neighborhoods, an update on the rooftop garden at Frontera/Topolobampo (where he’s using Earthboxes), an ode to tacos al pastor with a significant shout out to Maxwell Street’s Rubi’s, and tips on making your own hot sauce.
