Read Up On It For October 26th, 2012
This week’s Read Up On It features tips on everything from how to hang your pheasant to how to freeze whipping cream, as well stories about dumplings and japanese noodles.
Hanging Pheasants by Alexander Pope.
- First things first. Hank Shaw doles out tips and tidbits on how to hang pheasants.
- Eater reports that an editor at Marie Claire got snippy with a chef when the chef wouldn’t comp his meal because the editor said that they would give him publicity. Good on the chef.
- A great story in the New York Times about the recent rise in quality and inventiveness of that most humble and satisfying of foods: dumplings.
- Sometimes I buy too much whipping cream. I’m always paranoid that I am going to have to go back to the store and get more. Fear not, says David Lebovitz. Freeze it.
- The CBC posted three interesting stories, all of them touching on concepts around food safety. First an Ontario doctors wants warning labels on junk food. A student at a university in Cape Breton suffers from “caffeine rage” due to Red Bull, and Market Place looks at how mechanical tenderisation may not be the best way to do so, due to concerns over e.coli.
- And finally, I don’t usually post reviews, but I want to read this book now. The Japan Times reviews a book about the history and significance of ramen.
