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, Duff Goldman's hyper career; a review of the Long Beach Cambodian restaurant Little La Lune; and checking out merkén, a little-known chile from Chile.

The New York Times considers the joys of chicken skin + a truly weird cover shot; flooded out farmers learn to be creative; and David Tanis cooks butter-fried oysters.

In search of Chilean tortillas; and what Rahm Emanuel is eating (or not, they're not sure) for Rosh Hashana, at the Chicago Sun-Times.

At the Cleveland Plain Dealer, an appreciation of seasonal apples; and a review of Theresa Weir's The Orchard.

All the strange things people are doing with French fries; and a fall 2011 cookbook roundup, from The Boston Globe.

Chefs revive the old art of pickling, at The Baltimore Sun.

At The New York Daily News, the Esquire cookbook teaches men to cook; and Mad Hungry With Lucinda Scala Quinn debuts on the Hallmark Channel.

The Denver Post considers Colorado cheese shops that have been successful during the recession.

A chef who's been cooking Chinese for years finally goes to China, from The Washington Post.
