Random items of interest from around the ‘net

I’d pay money for more time to write, how sad is that?  There is another post in the works though and it involves a ten pound rabbit.  In the meantime, here are a few tasty tidbits of news that I’d like to share with you.

In my last post I shared this picture of the bone marrow spoon I was given for being a groomsman at my friend’s wedding.  A few people asked where they could buy one just like it, and I’ve found an online store that carries them.  At $43 a pop they’re a little expensive but sometimes you need the right tool for the job.

American-Statesman food writer Addie Broyles contacted me last week about an article she was writing concerning pork belly.  I was honored to give my opinions on such a noble cut of meat, and to be included with some of Austin’s great chefs and restaurants.  There’s also two excellent recipes included at the end of the piece.

I’m super excited that James Beard nominated food writer Hank Shaw from Hunter Angler Gardner Cook recently announced that he’s got a book deal in the works.  I can’t wait to buy a copy, and I’m planning on buying a dozen more to give away in a contest that I’m still working on.  Congrats Hank, you sure deserve it!

Over at Eating Nose to Tail, Sydney is curing some nice looking back fat, following a recipe from Fergus Henderson’s second book, Beyond Nose to Tail Eating.  It’s not quite done yet but I’m very interested to see how it turns out.  Go give it a look!

It’s almost the weekend, one more day to go.  I hope it’ll be fun and relaxing for you. Take care!
