The New Yorker's latest food issue (November 21, 2011) hits the stands, just in time for Thanksgiving. Add good food writing to the long list of what to be thankful for this year. In this issue?

Calvin Trillin -- who is a thank-you-god category all to himself -- on what to eat in Nova Scotia. Adam Gopnik, whose new book The Table Comes First is about food and France and lots of other related things, on Thanksgiving. Jane Kramer writes about foraging. Kelefa Sanneh on the coffee revolution. John Seabrook builds a better apple. And then, just for fun, essays by Paul Theroux, Dana Spiotta, Mohammed Naseehu Ali, Judith Thurman, and Louise Erdrich.

Something to read while you're standing in line at the market with your free-range turkey, your bags of cranberries, your NFL Thanksgiving schedule, your jugs of cider.

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.
