I am on ten gazillion mailing lists about food, and one of those that drifted in this past week was about the launch of Yahoo! Food . My first impression is that it looks great - clean design, not cluttered with moving bits like the Food TV site. It's similar to BBC Food , my current favorite non-blog food site. I particularly like the huge search box on the Yahoo! page, as well as the food related quotes.
I do sincerely hope that Yahoo! will keep it uncluttered and free of those godawful interstital ads that plague so many portal-type sites. (Interstital ads are those annoying 'windows' seem to open by mistake when you move your mouse pointer anywhere near an ad that float above the web page, blocking your view and more of than not making loud noises in the process.)
