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.
Robb Walsh: Although he's still blogging here from time to time -- and finishing up his list of the 100 best dishes in Houston -- you can also catch Robb over at his own blog. He's been discussing oysters a lot lately, a subject which he's just beginning to explore. Kidding. Go check out the oyster expert's latest entry on marketing the Gulf bivalves using place names.
H Town Chow Down: Albert has a great story about a local cookie company that will soon be delivering its product way outside the Loop. Even further outside the Loop than you're currently imagining. Read on...
Feed The Heights: We'll let the intro to this great post speak for itself:
The Houston Press recently blogged about its Top 10 Restaurants in the Heights, and the comments quickly deteriorated into a discussion about how they were a bit too lenient in their definition of the Heights. Okay, so maybe the title should have been "Heights Area Restaurants." Me, I'm less interested in debating official borders. The topic nobody seems to be discussing: How awesome is the restaurant scene in the Heights?
Blue Jean Gourmet: Just in time for the high holy days, Nishta is here with a recipe for -- of all things -- matzoh toffee. It also comes complete with a Jewish-Muslim love story (and Halloween costume) that you absolutely cannot miss.
Houston Wok: Finally, no week would be complete without a pork belly recipe. Here to answer that call is David, with a recipe for pork belly stir fry (a.k.a. thit heo quay xao).
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
