There are too many links on the right side of this page, and I can’t seem to stop adding.
It’s because of stuff like this from The Onion:
“WASHINGTON, DC—New data from the U.S. Commerce Department show that rich, buttery goodness beat out automobiles, timber, and crispety-crunchitiness as the country’s most valuable commodity in fiscal year 2006.
” ‘Soaring demand among consumers for the melt- in-your-mouth sensation of buttery goodness, combined with increasing production efficiency, meant that more then 32 million tons were manufactured and consumed last year,’ said Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez, who noted that sales of chewy, double-stuffed deliciousness stagnated in this same period due to inflation and regional shortages of cream filling.”
You can’t make stuff like that up. If you did, you’d be working at The Onion.
Anyway, sorry for the temporarily dead link at Waiter Rant (as soon as I posted about it.) It’s back up, still good.
But wait … there’s more!
Dee, who’s out of town, emailed me a site she came across in her research that has some incredible food photography, and links to more … it’s called Pinch My Salt.
The writing’s good too.
When I went to look for the books, I found the blog. It’s excellent. Read the tarragon post.
