Food Media Omnibus #564: On Awesome Pupusas And Alexandra Gill Eats Afghanistan

April 12, 2012.

by Claire Lassam | Presenting Scout’s weekly Food Media Omnibus, a collection of links to the local and international food stories of the day…

The NYTimes makes some damn good Roman Egg soup.

If your planning on driving south for more sunshine, the LATimes article on 50 places to eat for under $5 is for you.

One of my fave foods of all times, falafel, gets an approachable makeover in Design*Sponge

North Shore News talks Alsatian wines.

Edible Vancouver gives pie lessons to the uninitiated.

I have never had caramels half as good as the ones that Denise Acabo sells in her Montmartre shop in Paris. David Leibovitz goes for a tour.

Food52 goes Vegan for a night.

At last, something to do with all the dandelions that you’ve weeded! If you’re so lucky to have a garden, you should definitely make this dandelion wine. (The Guardian)

Alexandra Gill goes to South Surrey and eats proper Afghan food.

I know eggs are super trendy right now and for the most part I’m totally into it. Poached egg on pizza? Yes. Spaghetti Carbonara? It’s always been a favourite. But I’ve never really gotten behind the whole eggs in cocktails thing (see: nog, egg). Food and Wine puts in a good argument.

I live on Commercial Drive for 2 reasons: cheap rent and Rinconcito’s pupusas. The latter gets a rave-ish review in The Westender.

The Kitchn throws a party on a budget.

Yaletown jumps on the sandwich trend in the Georgia Straight.

No one has ever looked more stylish than Tyler Gray of Mikuni Wild Harvest while foraging mushrooms in Montecristo Magazine.

    “Yaletown jumps on the sandwich trend in the Georgia Straight.”

    On behalf of everyone in Yaletown, i’d like to thank the trendier parts of town for this excellent sandwich trend we’re now jumping on. Keep up the good trending.
