This is a guest post from Kristen Sala – Senior Manager, Electronic Media – at Cision.

We take our food seriously in Chicago. Our famed summer food fests offer a variety of culinary greats, whether you’re craving a slice of deep dish pizza, a Chicago-style hot dog (hold the ketchup, please) or an ethnic dish from one of our many diverse neighborhood restaurants. However, you don’t have to take a trip to the Windy City to get your fill of delicious cuisine. Using Cision’s media database, we’ve compiled 50 independent blogs in North America that cover food and ranked them based on our Cision Influence Rating. These blogs share mouthwatering family recipes, offer tips on vegan and healthy eating and highlight some of North America’s best restaurants.  Many are receptive to product pitches, food events and book reviews. Bon appétit!
