I have, on many occasions, been the only girl in the kitchen, so this article in The Guardian on the highs and lows of being a back of house woman intrigued.

The North Shore News talks you out of buying the same old bottle of wine.

The New York Times reports on bringing Buddhism to the table.

Though I have doubts about Rene Redzepi ever cooking at home (the winter issue of Lucky Peach had him going out for dinner with David Chang the night his son was born), Bon Appetit swears that he does.

Gothamist remembers how New York City ate in 1938.

Alexandra Gill checks out the Unsung Heroes Festival at Yaletown’s Bue Water Cafe and falls for anchovies.

Saveur eats a lot of cabbage. Kimchi pancakes anyone?

Andrew Morrison takes us behind the scenes of this past weekend’s Canadian Culinary Championships in Kelowna.

I can not tell you how much I wish I’d been at the bourbon-southern-food-fiesta at Hawksworth on Monday. Fortunately, I can read about it in the Georgia Straight.

TheKichn breaks down kitchen basics to 15 steps.
