Paula Deen's Death Food, Beet Sweets, and Sandos: This Week in Food Bloggery
Highlights from the blog this week:
CT Young/SF Weekly Flickr Pool The Saloon on Grant.
1. In his review of Bobby Deen's new television show, Not My Momma's Cooking, food TV reviewer Michael Leaverton keeps calling Paula Deen's cooking death-food. Not three days later, Paula Deen is finally going public with the fact that she has diabetes 2, having signed a contract to become the spokesperson for a pharmaceutical company.
2. Roving cocktail correspondent Lou Bustamante visits new Emeryville cocktail bar Honor and discovers the bar's Queen Anne's Revenge. SFoodie was going to make a quip about Montezuma's Revenge, then realized it sounded like a bad dad joke.
3. Not only does Tamara Palmer discover Apiece Desserts, a side project from Mifune Bistro pastry chef Yoko Fujii, she discovers that she enjoys cookies made with beets.
4. SFoodie announced this week that we will be tracking the countdown to the end of foie gras in California. Set your iPhone alarm to midnight on the morning of July 1, and keep checking the blog for our soon-to-grow list of places that serve foie gras. Just remember you set your alarm, and don't end up like this guy.
5. Commenter of the week: Andrew H., who not only defended SFoodie to a troll but, more importantly, schooled us as to the Japanese origins of the word "sando."
