The Wednesday Edition: A Roundup of Newspaper Food Stories
You can't replace the feeling of lounging on the couch with a scrunched-up newspaper. But with the web, at least you don't need to worry about getting ink on your hands and bagel. Here's a roundup of some food-related stories from our country's newspapers this week. Lucky for us, it's mostly free. For now. Macchiato optional.
From The New York Times, Eric Asimov asks what's the right price for a bottle of wine; remembering soul food pioneer Sylvia Woods, who died at 86 last Thursday; and Pete Wells reviews Mission Chinese Food.
The Washington Post gives you a guide to grilling fruit like peaches and pineapples; ways to do more with summer sweet corn; and a new software AgSquared to help farmers manage their crops electronically.
From The New York Daily News, a California winery produces an Olympic themed champagne; the spotlight on new "Top Chef Masters" competitors Missy Robbins, Kerry Heffernan and Sue Torres; and how United Nations chef Daryl Schembeck manages to cook for the culinary needs of 192 countries.
