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, 3 stars for the new Hungry Cat; considering Umami Burger; and the precarious state of Gravenstein apples.

At The New York Times, Joan Nathan writes about a boat-to-table initiative; a hot dog renaissance; and Melissa Clark considers the eggplant.

Chefs turn to vegetables as the next big thing; and recipes for main course salads, at Chicago Tribune.

Making proper iced coffee; and considering Italian granita, at The Boston Globe.

At The Denver Post, how to best navigate your local farmers market.

Rethinking margarita recipes; and a consideration of tabbouleh, from The Orange County Register.

Back-to-school lunch recipes; and, on the same theme, back-to-school gadgets, from The Cleveland Plain Dealer.

At The Modesto Bee, grilling lamb instead of the usual suspects.

Seattle food trucks go brick and mortar; and considering a series of wok dinners, at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

  • 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.
