Tiny Tweets Direct to Your Table: Micro-Recipes Take the Cooking World by Storm

BELFAST, Ireland - From random ramblings to breaking news and even personal updates from Bo Obama, the first dog, the many uses of micro-blogging website Twitter continue to evolve. Now we can add another use to the list - sharing recipes. That's right, using only 140 characters or less a growing number of Twittering chefs are sharing their recipes over the internet.

Maureen Evans, 27, lives in Belfast, Ireland and is one of the pioneers of what has been called "awesome acts of compression" by the New York Time's Lawrence Downes. Maureen who is a native of British Columbia but is studying for her master's degree abroad isn't a trained chef but what she lacks in formal schooling she makes up for with creativity.

That creativity includes the vast number and variety of meals she shares through her Twitter page www.twitter.com/cookbook as well as the poetic posts she writes on her personal page www.twitter.com/maureen where she only posts using senryu, a poetic form similar to haiku.

An example from @cookbook and one of her more recent recipes: "Root Stew: c chop tater&parsnip&carrot&swede&onion/4T oil 20m@375F/190C. Stew30m+c cider&2T honey&vinegar&garlic; 15m+3c h2o/thyme&sage/s+p." Sound complicated? That's because it is - fortunately Maureen's also put together a glossary that can help guide you through the micro-recipe process.

If all of this sounds like too much work get ready for it to get even more complicated. Kim O'Donnel, food critic for washingtonpost.com writes in her latest blog post that the folks at Cookthink a food blog and website are setting up a contest for aspiring micro-recipe tweeters. Submit your best effort and they'll send a book of the tasty tiny tweets to the person who submits their favorite recipe.
