Food Linkies

Here's a small roundup of random links, articles and such, etc. etc....

  • If you're bored at work and have access to the Internet, there's a cool interview with Thomas Keller of the French Laundry and Jeff Cerciello, executive chef at Bouchon on Forum, KQED. Some good bits in the interview, including questions from callers about foie gras, and why Keller hasn't chosen to run a $15/meal type of French brasserie establishment.
  • I like this recipe in the Wednesday Chronicle's Food section for Pomegranate, (Pinot,) & Spice Braised Pork.. sounds like a good stewing dish for these cool, rainy days.
  • I've been thinking about Thanksgiving lately, and it seems I'll be repeating last year's tradition with my good friends Nora and Brian and hosting an orphan thanksgiving for those not traveling for the Turkey Holidays. Inviting the Capoeira Group.... Thinking about the menu from last year, and what kind of turkey to get.
  • Our local wet weather is definitely having an effect on my food cravings: from the New York Times - Here Comes Ramen: the Slurp Heard Round the World.
  • Learn about how the 'complex web of market and political forces that are changing the nature of what we eat': tonight, there's a (foodie) star-studded event with Madame Chez Panisse herself, Alice Waters, journalist Michael Pollan (The Botany of Desire) and filmmaker Deborah Koons Garcia of the headlined and highly acclaimed film, The Future of Food: see the film at the Castro, attend the subsequent panel discussion, and taste organic wine, beer and other snacks provided by Om Organics, Lime Restaurant and Besos Foods. Tickets are only $10 presale; limited # of $15 at the door. It's bound to sell out, if it hasn't already... (I so dearly want to go to this, but have other obligations...)

Hi. I just came across your site and noticed you mentioned our new business on it -
Did you have a chance to check out the film and our food at the after-party?
