(Newser) – Aspiring foodies have thousands of resources available to them on the Internet, and Mashable lists 15 of the best sites for buying, cooking, and eating food:

  • For locavores: Foodzie and Foodoro are online marketplaces for small, independent producers. Local Harvest connects users with farms in their area, while the Locavore iPhone app does the same thing on the go.

  • For gourmet lovers: You might be surprised, but Amazon’s Gourmet Food section offers great variety of options for foodies. If you’re in the market for recipes, Epicurious tends toward the fancier. Or find a supper club featuring gourmet cuisine on the Ghetto Gourmet.
  • For aspiring chefs: Rouxbe is a high-quality online cooking school. Or, if you’re just getting started, learn the basics at Foodista’s wiki. Just looking for recipes? Try AllRecipes, Nibbledish, or the Food Network site.
  • For restaurant addicts: Yelp and FriendsEat feature user ratings and reviews, while Urban Spoon adds critics and food bloggers to the mix—or join the foodie discussions over at Chow.
