5. – The Chicago Tribune Thin Pastry Sheets have a Thick History “Whether you’re searching for exotic appetizers or just a lighter alternative to standard dessert crusts, take a leaf from the Turks and use phyllo (FEE-low). Layered into stacks, this tissue-thin dough adds a bit of zest to commonplace fruit pies and a hearty crunch to vegetable, meat and cheese snacks.”

4. – The Boston Globe Planning Hassel-Free Meals has Gotten a Little Easier “Neighborhood supermarkets are vying for these customers by offering foods that are partially prepared – already cut up or marinated or mashed – so you can go home and do some quick assembly. In fact, food industry watchers consider supermarkets to be the stiffest competition facing fast-food restaurants. More and more aisle space is devoted to prepared and semi-prepared foods to make meal planning and cooking simpler. Bags of washed and torn lettuces, shredded cabbage, fruit chunks, celery sticks, rotisserie chickens, mashed potatoes, marinated meats, ready-to-grill chicken or vegetables threaded on skewers, and foil-wrapped garlic bread proliferate.”

3. – The LA Times Gourmet Magazine: Once the Epitome of Good Living “For 68 years, Gourmet magazine upheld at least one end of the foodie vision. For decades, its vision virtually defined sophisticated cuisine for Americans. Back then, Gourmet was the only game in town. In its early days, the magazine had a genteel, clubby feel, suggesting that its readers had probably traveled in Europe, something very few Americans did before cheap airfares appeared in the 1960s.”

2. – The NY Times Lobster Roll with that Anorak “Her goal, she said, is to save Maine’s most iconic industry by ending its dependence on Canadian processors and, under her Linda Bean’s Perfect Maine label, to mass market Maine lobster the way Perdue does chicken.”

1. – The Washington Post The Measure of Old Bay Seasoning “What would you do if you suddenly found yourself without a can of Old Bay? There are people out there who worry about this.”
