In Print: Clips from Food Sections

5. – The Boston Herald Mmm… bacon (and more…) ” ‘Everything is better with bacon. It’s one of my favorite foods,” said Don Yovicsin, the owner of Jake’s Dixie Roadhouse in Waltham. “So when one of my friends mentioned the idea of bacon and vodka, it piqued my curiosity.’ ”

4. – The Chicago Tribune Old School Tool “Today, we’re looking at another old tool from the old school, one that’s still popular in professional kitchens but which largely has fallen out of favor at home: the food mill.”

3. – The LA Times Entertaining with an entree-free dinner “Let’s face it: Late-summer nights are perfect for entertaining but not so great for cooking or eating three-course meals. This kind of weather calls for a different battle plan for dinner. “

2. – The NY Times Even Chefs Have to Wait for a Table “Restaurant openings in New York are beginning to require the kind of planning that went into the Beijing Olympics. A few of the restaurants in this annual preview were also in the preview last year, prematurely, it turned out.”

Thirty years later, that maitre d’ is still protesting that it was his waiter’s thumb, not his.”
