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.

Fork and Cork: The Houston Chronicle's long-running Whine & Dine section is a nearly endless source of amusement, and I hope it never goes away. This week, a diner takes umbrage with a restaurant that was closing up well before its posted closing time. Sound familiar? That's because it was a hot topic on Twitter earlier this week.

she eats.: What started out initially as a means of displaying some pretty photos I took over the weekend accidentally turned into a rant on why Houston doesn't have the same type of enormous, amazing, centralized farmers' market that Dallas does. But do we really need one?

H Town Chow Down: Even if Houston doesn't have a centralized farmers' market, it does have several wonderful smaller markets scattered around town. Albert takes us on a tour of one of the more underappreciated of them: Neal's Berry Farm & Farmer's Market in The Woodlands. I spot some cream peas in one of those pictures, which means I'll be heading there this weekend.

Cook's Tour: We aren't the only ones who appreciate Anvil's new brunch. Alison Cook over at the Chronicle took in the spread and came away impressed (and full).

Foodie Houston: Jodie braved the lines in Highland Village to try a Sprinkles cupcake earlier this week for the first time. Verdict? The chai latte and black & white flavors brought it home.

Wholefish: One Houston chef discusses the eternal quandary: French versus American. Er...make that technique versus talent. Which is more important when running a kitchen?

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.
