From Too Many Chefs -

Posts 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.

This week's posts in no particular order:

I. Kate at the Accidental Hedonist examines the issue of class and how it relates to food. The $27 hamburger, the origins of the sandwich, and upscale soul food are brought into the discussion in a short, thought-provoking piece that should be read by anyone who is interested in the topic.

A. Pim of Chez Pim went to a marvelous party with fellow food bloggers from the San Francisco area held at the home of Heidi, from 101 Cookbooks fame. In attendeance were Amy of Cooking with Amy, Alder of Vinography, the recently relocated Alaina of NYC Eats, Anne of The Cheese Diaries, and Derrick of Obsession With Food. Watch their blogs over the next week for more info and recipes from a great sounding party. Pim supplies a recipe in her post for ice cream made with vanilla and creme fraiche - one of the desserts she brought to the get-together.

1. The final selection this week is a sad one. It's the first post in nine months over on the julie/julia project by Julie Powell who famously cooked her way through Julia Child's first cookbook, "Mastering the Art of French Cooking". Powell posts her thoughts on the passing of Julia Child at 91.

Until next week, Bon Appétit.
