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.
Foodie Houston: With all the new food trucks in town, there's plenty of street eats to go around these days. Jodie checks out one of the newest -- Eatsie Boys -- that's usually found at farmers' markets like Eastside, City Hall and Discovery Green. But this truck has some serious street cred: Chef Matt Marcus is a Michelin-trained chef.
H-Town Chow Down: Okay, so Houston isn't going to be next recipient of a Dough Pizzeria, the pizza spot in San Antonio renowned for its Naples-crafted wood burning oven; that honor has officially gone to Dallas. But we're not doing so bad on our own, as Albert reports on a new, non-chain pizza restaurant in The Woodlands -- Crust Pizza Co. -- that's attempting to up the pizza ante.
The Daily Meal: The national food website, which is as fond of lists as we are, has released its annual list of America's 50 Most Powerful People in Food. Although I think the number one spot is a cop-out, the list of influencers is pretty interesting -- and not entirely composed of food personalities or chefs, either.
Homesick Texan: Want some great boudin, but don't want to make the trip out to Pyburn's to get it? Lisa has a surefire recipe for spicy Cajun boudin you can make yourself at home. And you don't even have to stuff it in a casing if you don't want to.
The Wynk: Finally, Melissa made out like a bandit at the annual Urban Harvest fruit tree sale, with a clementine/tangelo hybrid and a lime/kumquat hybrid. Did you pick anything up? Tell us about it!
