Five on Food: Articles From the Wednesday Dining Pages

Posted in General Interest by melissamccart on March 4, 2009

gus1) Drive Time for Dining Moguls. Washington Post.  How local restaurateurs are weathering the recession– better than you’d think.

2) Turning to Cube Steak, And Back to Childhood. New York Times. “The cube steak is suddenly one of the hottest cuts of beef in the country, according to figures from the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association.”

3) String Theory. LA Times. How to use kitchen string. It’s like a McSweeney’s piece:”The hardest thing about string,” says Mélisse chef-owner Josiah Citrin, who uses twine to tie meat in shape before cooking it sous-vide, among many other things, “is to make sure it’s not in the meat when you serve it.”

4) Now It’s Salt’s Turn. Boston Globe. First, trans fat. Now salt is under scrutiny. Again.

5) A Fan’s Cry to Save a Restaurant. Chicago Tribune. Keep Mr. Beef Alive!
