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.
