Five on Food: Articles From the Wednesday Dining Pages

Posted in District of Columbia by melissamccart on August 26, 2009

1) Farm to Hub to Table. Washington Post. How groups are getting produce to restaurants and stores more efficiently.

2) Good Tips. New York Times. Frank Bruni’s last column. Best sushi place, how to navigate a menu, and delicious marrow for its “druggy” taste at Marea, etc.

3) Spain’s Hidden Treasure Wine. LA Times. Albarino is touted as one of the most lovely whites, particularly for summer. “‘The best white wines in the world are from very extreme areas and we are one of those,’ Amoedo says. I don’t think I’ve tasted a better 2008 Albariño than Martin Códax, with green apple and peach flavors and excellent balance.”

4) Barbecue and Beyond. Wall Street Journal. Barbecue and breakfast are among the reasons to go to Richmond for a food jaunt, according to Ray Sokolov. Just don’t go until summer traffic is over, or  you’ll spend four hours going 90 miles there and back like I did last weekend.

5) Book Review: Vefa’s Kitchen. Chicago Tribune.“At just more than 700 pages, this book is encyclopedic in scope. If you can’t find a particular Greek dish here, it probably wasn’t Greek in the first place.”
