In Print on Wednesdays: What the Rest of the Food World is Talking About

5. – Boston Globe Local Color “During the rest of the year, they might be passed over – no pun intended – for thick slices of chocolate cake and doughy macaroons. But for a week in the spring when Jewish households must be cleared of all things leavened for Passover, these familiar fruit slices are coveted.”

4. – Dallas Morning News Pillsbury Bake-Off Winner: A million dollar cookie “Carolyn Gurtz, a 59-year-old homemaker from Gaithersburg, Md., captured the $1 million grand prize Tuesday in the 43rd Pillsbury Bake-Off at the Fairmont Dallas Hotel.  Ms. Gurtz’s winning recipe was a simple creation called Double-Delight Peanut Butter Cookies…”

3. – The Denver Post Postmodern Matzo “If you’ve got to eat matzo for eight days, why not revel in the unleavened staple’s culinary potential?”

2. – Washington Post- Meatloaf, Tobacco and Butane “The Post’s food critic offers a peek at the restaurant gripes that flood into his e-mail, voicemail and inbox.”

1. – NY Times What’s for Dinner? The Pollster Wants to Know “IF there’s butter and white wine in your refrigerator and Fig Newtons in the cookie jar, you’re likely to vote for Hillary Clinton. Prefer olive oil, Bear Naked granola and a latte to go? You probably like Barack Obama, too.”

  1. I saw that Nytimes article, and giggled the whole way through! Red wine vs. White, KFC vs. Chick-Fil-A🙂 I wonder if it’s as applicable in a city like D.C. though, since most folks have very urban, eclectic tastes and yet remain actively involved political parties… Take Georgetown for instance; someone once told me that it’s the place to go for Republican bars, but it’s full of some of the most “Democratic” dining (according to the article) in the city. Hmmm. Perhaps D.C., as usual, defies categorization.
