Just a quick and dirty food digest today at TooManyChefs. I'm pinch-hitting for Todd and Barrett, both of whom have much better noses for sniffing out the interesting stuff in the food world.
The big news today of course is the release of Martha Stewart from jail. This Chicago Tribune article notes "Within minutes of Stewart's release, a Website run by her supporters, savemartha.com, began hawking "Martha is Free at Last!" BBQ aprons for $18.95." Get yours now...
And if you are interested in what the inimitable Ms. Stewart ate in prison, you can read this article in Slate. Apparently, the Prison Diet resulted in a loss of 20 pounds over a five-month period. Drastic measures indeed!
Over in the Seattle Times, Kathy Casey gives us some innovative pizza recipes and tips on getting restaurant-quality pies at home. But can she explain why it is that Domino's in the UK is advertising new "Chicago-style" thin crust pizzas?!?? Can anyone?
Barrett has been exercising his keen food news nose for me and just sent me a link to this story in the Chicago Tribune on the Luther Burger, named after Luther Vandross and served in a Georgia restaurant named Mulligan's. What is a Luther Burger you may ask? A delightful combination of hamburger meat and...Krispy Kreme doughnuts. MMMM. The article notes "And yes, customers do order it. Maybe not in droves, but they do." One is too many, eh? And don't even ASK about the "hamdog" served in the same establishment.
And so that is it until next week when your favourite presenters will be back and in full form!
