Sun Times story on eating local features Vital Information.

A Pastured Products Directory for Illinois.

Edwardian Supersize Me “…what an enormous stroke of luck that the BBC were looking for someone to send back to that very era — to live, dress, exercise, eat and drink like an Edwardian man of means — to find out what it did to his girth, his arteries, his inner organs, his digestion, his mood, his very soul.

Catching up with a bunch of links.

Everybody else has already mentioned it, but the Tribune has finally joined the food blogging community with The Stew.

I’m a little upset at the International Association of Culinary Professional’s refusal to grant me any press access to its conference in town this week. Of course I just wanted to got to an expensive conference for free and eat some free food.

It would have been nice to get press access (read: free booze) to Whiskeyfest too, but I didn’t ask. It seems to sell out long before I hear about the dates.

25 Best Beers In America. Mens Journal has compilied a pretty good list, with a good variety of styles, but I would have liked to see some of the ‘bigger’ and stronger beers that are becoming popular, particularly the ‘American Strong Ale’ style unique to this country. The Hairy Eyeball form Lagunitas is my particular favorite in that style (sadly it’s a seasonal, and only available in the winter).

A non-blog – blogsoop, which is a very useful concept – a searchable aggregator of food bloggers’ restaurant reviews. Only NY and San Francisco though.

I’m doing a little editing of the food blog list, and I’ve collected a few interesting Easter food links.

Delicious Days has an intriguing Easter egg idea – baking cake inside eggs.

Ice Cream Ireland makes Ice Cream Easter Eggs

Rubber Slippers in Italy makes Cuddura, a Sicilian egg-topped pastry “prepared for the festival of Easter. After refraining from the consumption of meat, eggs and cheese during the Lenten period, it is interesting to note how much of a role, or more importantly, how plentiful of a role, in which eggs played in the preparation of holiday sweets upon the arrival of Holy Week.”

For Chicago chef, it’s prepare, print, serve. Homaru Cantu declares Marie’s on Lawrence, the best pizza in Chicago. He also talks about edible advertising, open source food, the paperless kitchen (meaning prep lists on big screens, not eliminating the edible paper he serves) nutraceutical applications and making kitchens energy efficient with lasers.

I’ll try to restart things around here by stealing a few links.

The Periodic Table of Dessert “A Scientific and Rigorous approach to patisserie” “You’ve seen those charts that say, like, “Periodic Table of the Vegetables” or “Periodic Table of the Sausages”? They annoy me. Because they’re not periodic. They have no vertical or horizontal correspondences. The actual periodic table of chemical elements has structure — that’s why it’s cool.”

Most of these links stolen from me3dia, Bradlands and the LinkTH thread on LTHForum
