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.
New York Times: Despite some peoples' best efforts to the contrary, the City Hall Farmers Market is getting positive attention...positive national attention, even. In conjunction with the Texas Tribune folks, the New York Times had a story on Monday about Laura Spanjian -- the City's new sustainability director -- and the work she's done with Urban Harvest and the newest farmers market in town.
Washington Post: As if you needed any further encouragement to pick up a copy of Robb Walsh's latest tome, The Tex-Mex Grill and Backyard Barbacoa Cookbook, the Post just named it one of their top cookbooks of 2010.
Tony's Blog: Yes, that Tony. Tony Vallone himself has randomly entered the blogging fray at the very tail end of the decade that saw blogging as we know it created and then made into a parody of itself over the course of the last 10 years. Confusingly, Tony himself doesn't seem be doing any of the actual writing. Is ghost blogging the next big thing?
Great Food Houston: My favorite thing about a good British Sunday roast is the Yorkshire pudding. I could eat them four at a time, especially with gravy and HP brown sauce on top. Making them myself at home by the dozen -- as Ruthie has done with this great popover recipe -- might just be my undoing.
H-Town Chow Down: When we finally do get around to doing that Burger Bracket (coming very soon, I promise!), it looks like Samba Grille will have to be one of the contenders.
