more things to chew on…

I finally gave into my Krispy Kreme craving today, then ran across this on Please note that it takes place in the great state of North Carolina. [via Serious Eats]

More meat news– this time illicit videos of downer cows. [WaPo via Serious Eats]

Wednesday Food Round-up

Sorry all, I’ve got quite the backlog of posts, but it’s been a CRAZY week at work.

At any rate, it’s WEDNESDAY! Which means it’s time for a round up of the best in newspaper food journalism type things:

A “Crisis of Confidence” in Food Safety [WaPo] Apparently Michael Pollan was right. We are screwed.
Japan’s Martha-Nigella-Paula Deen [WaPo] Best quote ever: Q: “Do you like wine or beer?” A: “Yes”
Double Dipping [NYT] Looks like that episode of Seinfeld was right. Also on my list of highly suspect bacteria spreaders- those blowdryer hand things on bathrooms. Just give me some paper towels.
Meat=Murder, Oil…discuss [NYT] Mark Bittman goes Michael Pollan on us, but raises a pretty good point.
Beignets and Pizza in Baltimore [Baltimore Sun] Deep frying IS like bacon!
Slovenian Wines [LA Times] I once had a Romanian wine while in Scotland. It was terrible. Apparently I was just ahead of the curve.
The Butcher of Panzano is offering lessons [LA Times] Just in case you wanted to spend your honeymoon trip to Tuscany butchering things…don’t laugh, I’d do it.

Oh, and just for fun, what I’ll be doing the next time I’m in NYC.
