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 Hui Tou Xiang Noodles House in the SGV; S. Irene Virbila visits local restaurants with prix-fixe menus; and Russ Parsons considers zucchini.

At The New York Times, the difficulty of eating healthfully when you're a father who cooks for (and eats with) your kids; grilling with spices; and the joys of meal-planning services.

Don't get hung up on whether a dish is authentic; making gelato and sorbetto at home, at the Chicago Sun-Times.

At the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the benefits of dark over white chicken meat.

A consideration of quick pickles; how to make simple sauces; chef Tony Hu continues his expansion, at Chicago Tribune.

Tennis star Maria Sharapova launches her own line of candy, Sugarpova; and convicts cook for tourists on an Italian island, at the New York Daily News.

What kind of foods to pack when you go on vacation; and the problem when a banned food is also a cultural delicacy, at The Washington Post.

The myriad ways to prepare seasonal squash, at The Sacramento Bee.

At The Dallas Morning News, recipes to beat the triple digit temperatures.

  • 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.
