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.

The Los Angeles Times looks at the cult of the AeroPress coffeemaker; Hostaria del Piccolo gets 2 stars; and a Middle-Eastern menu for Purim.

At The New York Times a paean to the leek; Joan Nathan considers Purim; and Eric Asimov looks at the wines of Priorat in Spain.

A former professional ballerina opens a restaurant; and taking a look at the Irish dish colcannon for St. Patrick's Day, at the Denver Post.

How to slow cook an oft-overlooked piece of the animal: the legs, from the Chicago Tribune.

The Washington Post looks at a Virginia wine that might rival Bordeaux; and finding great Texas BBQ in D.C.

How to make a great corned beef and cabbage dinner, from The Cleveland Plain Dealer.

At The Boston Globe, a great story about two nutritionists who give advice about feeding picky eater kids; and some fun ways to cook squid. (No, the stories are not related.)

Bushmill's Irish whiskey holds a contest on Facebook, with winners heading to Ireland to learn whiskey secrets -- and probably drink some -- from the New York Daily News.

The long history of butter, plus its many uses, at the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner.

The Chicago Sun-Times brings us more fun with potato recipes, again for St. Patrick's Day.

  • Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar
    Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar, with chef Jason Fullilove at the helm, is in the two buildings at the pier’s entrance that used to be Beachcomber Cafe and Ruby’s Diner. Those buildings, which have been overhauled completely, reflect both the pier’s 109-year-old history and the cultural import of Malibu itself.
  • The Tasting Menu Trend
    In Los Angeles especially, but increasingly across the country, restaurants are either switching to tasting menus, putting a greater focus on a tasting-menu option (while offering à la carte items as well), or opening as tasting-menu operations from day one. The format that used to be the calling card of only the fanciest of restaurants is becoming ubiquitous, even at places where the waiter calls you “dude” and there isn’t a white tablecloth in sight.
  • Milo's Kitchen: A Treat Truck for Dogs
    Milo's Kitchen, a part of California-based Big Heart Pet Brands, is taking its homestyle dog treats on the road this summer with the "Treat Truck." The dogified food truck is making stops all over the country, ending up in New York early September. The truck stopped at Redondo Beach Dog Park Friday morning entertaining the pups with treats, a photo-booth and play zone. Milo's Kitchen Treat Truck offered samples of the line's six flavors, all with chicken or beef as the first ingredient, and all made in the U.S.A. with no artificial colors or preservatives.
