What's the country reading today food-wise? Here's a roundup of some of the food-related stories from other newspapers, many of which print their food sections mid-week. And remember, even if you don't actually buy papers these days (or not; this paper is free), it's where most of your content comes from. Surf away. Just remember that spilling your macchiato over your keyboard is a lot more expensive than spilling it across newsprint.

At the Los Angeles Times, 2 1/2 stars for Paul Shoemaker's Savory in Point Dume; the art of curing fish; and the upcoming arrival in the US of ibérico ham from Jabugo.

From The New York Times, chefs embrace the Michelin; finally, apparently the answer to bee colony collapse; the pop-up restaurant phenomenon hits London.

The joys of homemade Italian soups; and the secret to great roast pork may just be brining, at Chicago Tribune.

The pleasures of versatile winter squashes, at the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

When cooking with expensive items gets old (or too pricey), try cooking with cheap milk: recipes from The Dallas Morning News.

At the Boston Globe, a walking (and eating) tour of Davis Square in Boston; the chic transformation of NYC's Meatpacking District.

Eating and generally enjoying life at a fishing camp, from the Times-Picayune.

LAX isn't the only one: the food fight at John Wayne Airport, from The Orange County Register.

From The Washington Post, the new world of Maryland and Virginia oyster farming.

  • Pollo Loco at ChocoChicken
    ChocoChicken is a restaurant dedicated to chocolate-flavored chicken. It sounds like a joke. And when Adam Fleischman, founder of the Umami empire and monetary force behind many other L.A. restaurants, announced in January that he’d be opening a concept based not around mole but actual, yes, chocolate-flavored chicken, many of us treated it as a joke. It is not.
  • Daw Yee: Mission of Burma
    L.A. has a very small pool of Burmese restaurants; among them, Daw Yee does not boast the most extensive menu. Nonetheless, Daw Yee, in Monterey Park, is fascinating for one big reason — namely, that it gives L.A. something unusual: a Burmese restaurant that caters to younger diners.
