Sampler Plate: This Week In Food Blogs

Each week, we put together a sampler plate of the most interesting links from both local and national food blogs. Know a blog we should be paying particular attention to? Leave the address in the comments section below.

Fork and Cork: The Houston Chronicle's long-running Whine & Dine section is a nearly endless source of amusement, and I hope it never goes away. This week, a diner takes umbrage with a restaurant that was closing up well before its posted closing time. Sound familiar? That's because it was a hot topic on Twitter earlier this week.

she eats.: What started out initially as a means of displaying some pretty photos I took over the weekend accidentally turned into a rant on why Houston doesn't have the same type of enormous, amazing, centralized farmers' market that Dallas does. But do we really need one?

H Town Chow Down: Even if Houston doesn't have a centralized farmers' market, it does have several wonderful smaller markets scattered around town. Albert takes us on a tour of one of the more underappreciated of them: Neal's Berry Farm & Farmer's Market in The Woodlands. I spot some cream peas in one of those pictures, which means I'll be heading there this weekend.

Cook's Tour: We aren't the only ones who appreciate Anvil's new brunch. Alison Cook over at the Chronicle took in the spread and came away impressed (and full).

Foodie Houston: Jodie braved the lines in Highland Village to try a Sprinkles cupcake earlier this week for the first time. Verdict? The chai latte and black & white flavors brought it home.

Wholefish: One Houston chef discusses the eternal quandary: French versus American. Er...make that technique versus talent. Which is more important when running a kitchen?
