Picks of the Week
Too Many Chefs post of the week

Each week, we pick three posts we particularly enjoyed over the last week from the vast community of excellent food bloggers. Maybe these posts were funny, maybe they were great recipes or a particularly well-written review of a restaurant. Maybe they just were the right post for us at the right time. If you haven't read them, this should give you a chance to go back and catch them before they disappear into the archives.

I. Sometimes its all about the cooking, and sometimes its all about the restaurant food. Noodlepie has been sampling the menu at Ngu Vien in Saigon. This week we get four beautiful dishes and are spared the music from "a kidnapped band forced to grind through the most turgid of cellophane symphonies on the whim of a Kim-Jong-Il-alike".

1. Confessions of a Foodie has been getting us in the Halloween mood this week with recipes appropriate for the holiday. For those of you unfamiliar with Halloween it's the day when kids get all dressed up in cute costumes, traipse through the neighborhood, ring your doorbell and threaten to break something if you don't give them SUGAR! My favorite of the dishes this last week was the Screaming Buttered Moose Pie. You either love or hate butterscotch. I love it.

A. I've been waiting for a sufficiently complex recipe to recommend you check out Cooking for Engineers. If you got into food because of Alton Brown, this is your place. The best part of this site is the compact way the recipes are written. Check out this recipe for peanut butter cookies and you'll see what i mean.

See you next week!

Oh my God! I think I have found the second best food site on the net. Thanks for the pointer to the Cooking for Engineers. I'm a bit upset that they didn't use set notation, but I guess the symbols used will do. Nice discussion of cooking chemistry too. WooHoo!
