Five on Food: Articles from the Wednesday Dining Pages

Posted in General Interest by melissamccart on February 4, 2009

tiffany1) Restaurants Stop Playing Hard to Get. New York Times. “. . . .if you eat out regularly in New York, you’ve noticed a different reception, an altered mood: extreme solicitousness tinged with outright desperation.” Also, the third or fourth piece I’ve read lately on making your own crackers.

2) The Place Where LA Finds Itself. LA Times. It’s Clifton’s cafeteria. I wonder if the same could be said of DC’s Saint’s Paradise or New Hope?

3) Soothing Soup. San Francisco Chronicle. Several appealing recipes to warm up to.

4) Stirrings of a Better Martini. Washington Post. From Jason Wilson’s terrific article: “Ian Fleming’s spy also introduced the ridiculous concept of shaking, not stirring, a martini. Look, I don’t care how good Daniel Craig looks in his square-cut Speedo or whether you think Pierce Brosnan was a travesty, especially after the glory days of Sean Connery: A martini should be stirred.”

5)  Rats, Roaches, Common at ‘Filthy’ Peanut Plant. Atlanta Journal Constitution. The tabloidesque headline makes me never want to eat peanut butter again.
