The Los Angeles Times has a substantial food section, with lots of food news, articles and recipes. There’s even a nice listing of Farmers Markets, although they tend to be found in the LA Basin and don’t extend all the way over here to God’s Country.

Anyways, last week a […]

Friday Follies: Time For Barbeque Wars

CNN.com recently announced the Quest for the Best Barbeque. They’re a little late off the mark here, that Quest started long before Ulysses found out his favorite ribs joint had been burned flat at Troy, took a wrong turn and ten years later found himself in Ithaca. I’ve been to that part of New […]

The Nashville Hot Chicken Craze

Still, there’s nothing wrong with having a couple hundred […]

Restaurant Review: Pho Viet Restaurant

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

I’ve been on a quest for many years now, to find the best bowl of pho in all of Austin. I am very serious about this sort of quest (it involves food, after all!), and so I’ve tromped about and tasted hundreds of bowls of soup […]

Saturday Salmagundi for Memorial Weekend

It’s Memorial Day weekend, the official start of summer; a time for reflection and remembrance. Also, a time for food! So stop by those roadside stands and get some vittles, then fire up those grills…

If you’re not sure about grilling, check out this article on how to master your grill. Get prepared […]
