This Week in Food: Sriracha Cookbook, Culinary Language Cliches, and Octopus Tacos
Another week, another batch of goodies after the jump!
I got annoyedthat GOOD Magazine ripped off the name
of its GOOD Food section from the radio showGood Food
, reported on the weird op-ed piece in America's largest Armenian newspaperdecrying that there are Turkish-cooking classes in Orange County
, andoffered five words or terms that need excising from food writing NOW
Edwin got drunk at the Auld Dubliner and wondered why McDonald's in Japan would stuff its "Miami" hamburgers with tortilla chips. Gotta stuff in some croquetas, coños!
Finally--but definitely not leastly--Michelle discovered the Sriracha cookbook, while Shuji enjoyed the "gourmet" tacos at Haven Gastropub's new effort, Taco Asylum. Me? I'm sticking to the two-tacos-for-a-buck-and-free-pineapple-juice deal at Tacos El Chavito in the Slater Slums.
