- Per Andrew Watherhouse via Harold McGee: “the obnoxious, dank flavor of a “corked” wine, which usually renders it unusable even in cooking, can be removed by pouring the wine into a bowl with a sheet of plastic wrap.“
- Photos of pork chops depicting the amount of fat on standard, duroc, and mangalitsa hogs. Crazy!
- Senator Pat Robert’s is a jack ass. “That small family farmer is about 5′2″…and he’s a retired airline pilot and sits on his porch on a glider reading Gentleman’s Quarterly…”
- The minimalist kitchen.

- What Michelle Obama ate for her birthday should not be news.
- And, nobody on the internet seems to have commented on the yin yang aspects of this weeks Top Chef.
Quickfire: the shitiest possible canned foods somehow made to taste good.
