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

5. – The Boston Globe A Portion of the Proceeds “Every week this column explores the restaurants of Boston and beyond, and every week in writing it I’m reminded how lucky we are to have such a varied, vibrant dining scene. These days I’m reminded all the more. In the past weeks and months, we’ve seen the prices of wheat, rice, and other staples skyrocket worldwide, pushing an estimated 100 million people deeper into poverty.”

4. – The Chicago Sun Rhubarb Loves Company, Especially Sherry‘ “My love for rhubarb has followed me throughout my career. It is an elegant fruit with great flavor. It is wonderful in jams and compotes as a complement to pates and terrines, which we make here at the Ritz. When I am not able to cross the pond for my mother’s rhubarb trifle, I make this recipe — and I always remember not to be stingy with the sherry.” ‘

3. – NY Times The Next Best Thing in Sliced Bread “A great New York sandwich is large; it contains multitudes. And new contenders are turning up all the time to challenge the mighty meatball parm and the elegant B.L.T. Whether invented, imported, or refined here — whether discovered in the boroughs or farther afield — the seven sandwiches here move the dialogue forward.”

2. – Washington Post Space Invaders “In a way, the pantry problem is a reflection of our frenetic food culture. Thousands of cookbooks are published each year, providing ambitious kitchen warriors with recipes for Laotian beef salad, Italian grape and hazelnut tart, and the like. Americans also eat out more than ever and, with the help of the Internet, they can try to re-create restaurant dishes at home. If it’s Tuesday, it’s Belgian mussels. The catch: What do you do with the rest of the sour Flemish ale?”

1. – Dallas Morning News Salmon Shortage Raises Prices “Several factors have converged to produce the current situation. Start with the high price of diesel fuel, now more than $4 a gallon, which runs all those fishing boat engines. Add the mysterious calamity in California and Oregon: No one knows why there are dramatically fewer fish this year, but both areas are closed to salmon fishing right now.”
