The concept of the celebrity chef has already overrun your televisions; now it’s taking over your computer screens.

Indeed, two new sites devoted to the goings-on of chefs are cementing this hyperfocused niche of food journalism.

If you’re more interested in what’s behind the plate than what’s on it, bookmark these sites.

The New Potato: Focused on all things restaurant, this site culls recommendations and insight in the form of Q&As with luminaries such as Anita Lo, David Myers and Kelly Liken. There’s also an emphasis on restaurant aesthetics, with guides to creating your favorite restaurant’s look at home.

The Braiser: Launching next week, this new platform from Dan Abrams--of Mediaite fame--promises to cover the “facts, feuds and food” of the culinary scene (read: Page Six in chefs’ whites). The site will feature mostly chefs who are already household names, including Mario Batali and Bobby Flay, from a lifestyle point of view. Don’t expect recipes, but keep an eye out for entertaining mudslinging.
