In Print: Clips from Food Sections

5. – The Boston Globe As Food Prices Rocket, Relief from the Depths “Consumers, squeezed by rising prices on everything from milk to eggs to bread, are finding a rare – and surprising – bargain at the fish counter: The price of lobster is going down.”

4. – The LA Times West Coast Brewers Pick Up the Distilling Sprirt “Ballast Point is one of a handful of craft breweries and former brewers on the West Coast, including pioneer Anchor Brewing in San Francisco and Sub Rosa Spirits in Dundee, Ore., that have taken up distilling. Like Ballast Point, these craft distillers started with a learn-by-doing approach, because aspiring distillers are forbidden by law from experimenting with spirits prior to opening a licensed distillery. (In contrast with beer brewers, who can experiment before they invest in a commercial facility — provided the alcohol isn’t sold.)”

3. – The NY Times A Cocktail Book Renaissance, Too “Greg Boehm was galled when prices of out-of-print cocktail books skyrocketed along with the popularity of cocktails, a familiar gripe of any drink enthusiast who has been ensnared by the anachronistic charm of old bar books.”

2. – The Philadelphia Inquirer Rachel Ray Going to the Dogs with New Pet Food “In the latest expansion of her culinary empire, celebrity chef Rachael Ray has launched a charity-driven line of dog foods based on recipes she has created for her pit bull, Isaboo.”

1. – The Washington Post Light, Without Being Lightweight “During the sultry Washington summers, when the whole world seems to wilt, beer drinkers would be wise to intersperse their brewskis with plenty of water and switch from heavier, high-octane imperial styles to lighter, paler, more refreshing beers. The move to so-called lawn mower beers doesn’t have to mean giving up flavor, however.”
