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.
H Town Chow Down: Albert has breaking news out of The Woodlands, where it seems Tesar's suffered taken yet another blow: Its two chefs, Jeromy Robison and Austin Simmons, have left the restaurant.
Chili Bob's Houston Eats: Bruce checks out Gulshan-e-Iqbal, a Pakistani grocery store on -- where else -- Hillcroft and finds an assortment of goodies there, including some cumin cookies that have my stomach growling.
Dude, Are You Going To Eat That?: Dr. Ricky gives us a little insight into the history behind that breakfast favorite, French toast, as well as an idea for an interesting alternative.
Dirty Kitchen Adventures: Jen asks a question that any home cook -- whether faced with the prospect of moving to Spain or not -- has asked themselves: Which cookbooks could you not live without?
Robb Walsh: Finally, Robb leaves us with a mouthwatering description (and photo!) of what might be Houston's best lunch dish at the moment: Brennan's softshell crab over a mound of stoneground grits and gravy.
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.
