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.
Saveur: First and most importantly, congratulations to two of our regularly featured blogs -- Drink Dogma, from Anvil's Bobby Heugel, and Homesick Texan -- for being recognized by Saveur as two of the best food blogs in the country. Drink Dogma won out over such strong candidates as Jeffrey Morganthaler's blog to win Best Cocktail Blog in 2011, while Homesick Texan won Best Regional Cuisine Blog for the year. Well-deserved all around.
Erik Eats: Whether or not you attended the Haute Wheels food truck festival this past weekend -- and whether or not you enjoyed it -- Erik Eats has some fun video interviews with the food trucks' chefs and owners that are very much worth a watch.
Houston Entree: There's something about summer settling in -- hot weather and trips to the beach, perhaps -- that makes you want to eat light and eat seafood. Ruthie Johnson Miller has a roundup of the three best light dishes in Houston right now -- two of them with seafood -- for the pescatarian in all of us.
H-Town Chow Down: In the same vein as one of Ruthie's monthly "where to eat now" posts for CultureMap, Albert Nurick has a feature on where to eat now in an often overlooked area of town: The Woodlands.
Delicious Mischief: You read our recap of the glitzy grand opening at Philippe; now read radio host John DeMers' rundown of the night.
29-95: Finally, Alison Cook over at 29-95 has a recap of a very different dining event: the recent by-catch lunch that was a joint collaboration between Justin Yu, Justin Vann and P.J. Stoops. If you weren't able to make it, the photos will make you feel like you were there.
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.
