On the Mantle: the world’s largest lobster cooker, manga for oenophiles, heart-shaped eggs

Some classics this week, as well as some quirky finds:

Consider the Lobster, a renowned piece from the late great Gourmet magazine.

Reflecting on Alice Waters, Chez Panisse, and ‘California Cuisine’ – a retrospective on Gilt Taste and a great and thoughtful (though somewhat older) piece of criticism from NYT in 2005.

In a related but not-too-related vein, Edible Schoolyard NYC launched its new website a couple weeks ago!  It’s pretty.  I helped edit copy and even drafted a bit myself.

Japanese wine comics!

An important note on wine and cheese (though not the whole story, I might say).

More proof that making food products well and sustainably is both more delicious and most profitable.

LA espresso.

Ingenious.  Must try this.
