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, Jonathan Gold reviews Shunji; a story about Kyle Meyer, a wine buyer who is changing tastes; and Providence chef-owner Michael Cimarusti writes about brining halibut.

At The New York Times, Julia Moskin writes an ode to her namesake Julia Child, born 100 years ago today; Melissa Clark considers Child's desserts; and Jacques Pépin remembers Child, his friend and PBS co-host.

For an urban pig roast, all you need is a parking lot; and changing trends at Boston restaurants at The Boston Globe.

At Chicago Tribune, Bill Daley writes an ode to Julia Child.

Recipes for corn that go way beyond corn on the cob; and a Baltimore program connects farms and corner stores, at The Baltimore Sun

From The Chicago Sun-Times: What would Julia think of food today? Cooking with lavender; and considering pound cake via an old cookbook.

People in Dallas remember Julia Child; and gazpacho becomes salad in a jar, at The Dallas Morning News.

People in Denver remember Julia Child; a consideration of wonton skins, including definition and use (via the AP), at The Denver Post.
