Keep Houston Press Free

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.

The Ferm: Sir Ron may or may not blog drunk from time to time (see this entry on "How Not To Get a Job at the Houston Press"), but his latest entry on newly proclaimed city holiday Saint Arnold's Day is a loving ode to Houston's favorite microbrewery complete with a reassessment of all the Divine Reserves that he's kept over the years.

Great Food Houston: Ruthie loves her some chicken 'n' waffles, and so do we. Luckily, she's compiled a list of the best restaurants in town to get your chicken 'n' waffle fix. You'll want to print this one out and keep it in your wallet.

Hummingbird Tongues: Rachel's post on baking a luscious Lemon Luxury Layer Cake reads like lilting food free verse, replete with gorgeous photos and an endcap on some baking adventures around town.

Food In Houston: Although it's past Halloween, we simply had to share Robert's scary Halloween meal with an even wider audience. Steady your nerves, folks: How about some medulla medallions?

Feed Me Houston: Kelsey makes it over to the oft-overlooked DaCapo's in the Heights and finds that there might be a good reason it's, well, often overlooked.

And on the national scene...

Serious Eats: The folks at Serious Eats have a relatively new feature that we love called Meet Your Farmers. This edition showcases peanut farming in Georgia with farmer Wes Shannon.

The Grumpy Chef: He barely blogs anymore and we miss his vitriol desperately (they don't call him "The Grumpy Chef" for nothing), but we just had to share this old chestnut: The Audacity of a Patron. Anyone who's worked in the industry has felt at least a little like this at one time or another...

New York Times: Speaking of the industry, the Times dishes it up from the other side of the table with this pertinent (if odd in places: "Don't hustle the lobsters"?) list of 100 Things Servers Should Never Do.

The Last Days of Gourmet: While not technically a blog, this page is worth a good look. No text -- just photos of the last days of Gourmet magazine as staffers pack up, test kitchens are abandoned and desk drawers are emptied. Profound and sad.

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

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.
