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.
Foodie Houston: With all the new food trucks in town, there's plenty of street eats to go around these days. Jodie checks out one of the newest -- Eatsie Boys -- that's usually found at farmers' markets like Eastside, City Hall and Discovery Green. But this truck has some serious street cred: Chef Matt Marcus is a Michelin-trained chef.
H-Town Chow Down: Okay, so Houston isn't going to be next recipient of a Dough Pizzeria, the pizza spot in San Antonio renowned for its Naples-crafted wood burning oven; that honor has officially gone to Dallas. But we're not doing so bad on our own, as Albert reports on a new, non-chain pizza restaurant in The Woodlands -- Crust Pizza Co. -- that's attempting to up the pizza ante.
The Daily Meal: The national food website, which is as fond of lists as we are, has released its annual list of America's 50 Most Powerful People in Food. Although I think the number one spot is a cop-out, the list of influencers is pretty interesting -- and not entirely composed of food personalities or chefs, either.
Homesick Texan: Want some great boudin, but don't want to make the trip out to Pyburn's to get it? Lisa has a surefire recipe for spicy Cajun boudin you can make yourself at home. And you don't even have to stuff it in a casing if you don't want to.
The Wynk: Finally, Melissa made out like a bandit at the annual Urban Harvest fruit tree sale, with a clementine/tangelo hybrid and a lime/kumquat hybrid. Did you pick anything up? Tell us about it!
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.
