Five on Food: Articles From the Wednesday Dining Pages

Posted in District of Columbia by melissamccart on May 27, 2009

1) They Had to Hand It To Me. Washington Post. Soft shells make me swoon, so I loved this article and learned so much from Jane Black.

2) Preserving Time in a Bottle (or a Jar). New York Times. “Like baking bread or making a slow-cooked tomato sauce, preserving offers primal satisfactions and practical results. And in today’s swirl of food issues (local, seasonal, organic, industrial), home preserving can also be viewed as a quasi-political act.”

3) Rose Wines Bloom in Many Shades. LA Times. “More than any other wine category, rosé is a mood. There is simply nothing better on a warm afternoon, a salve for sun-drenched, heat-driven thirst.” And this, which makes me think I’m more of a Cioppino person then a Bouillebaisse lover.

4) Str-eats of San Francisco. San Francisco Chronicle. Falafel, creme brulee, salad, tamales, tacos, curry, and pho. Street carts are easier to get started in Oakland.

5) Rick Bayless on Cheeseburgers. Chicago Tribune. The famous chef on video talks about the thrill of the grill, which includes adding spicy condiments to the old standby.
