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.

In the Los Angeles Times, more fun with blowtorches; 2 stars for Aburiya Toranoko in Little Tokyo; and the California Cook considers bread crumbs.

Julia Moskin asks, Can recipes search engines make you a better cook?

Fried sweetbreads on waffles; and Sam Sifton reviews Gotham Bar and Grill, at The New York Times.

At Chicago Tribune, Bill Daley's grilling strategies; the joy of cast iron pans; and pictures of "evil and odd food."

A consideration of new celebrity cookbooks; cookies for spring parties; and giving tofu a try (eh, we thought they meant actually making it), at the Denver Post.

At the Chicago Sun-Times, the way to culinary enlightenment through cookbooks; and a consideration of peat and whisky. Yes, that bog stuff.

An homage to the old recipe collection; and considering malfatti, or Tuscan dumplings, from the Boston Globe.

The Washington Post takes a look at aligote, apparently the second white wine of Burgundy, after chardonnay.

From The Baltimore Sun, Preakness cocktails; and apps for paying the tab and browsing beers.

    We've got so many restaurants, you could eat at a different joint every day of the year -- and probably the rest of your life -- and never go to the same place twice. It would be impossible (both physically and financially) to try them all, but luckily, you have us. Check out The Year in L.A. Food (So Far).
