Food sites for March 2010

Wednesday, March 3, 2010
It's March, which means that winter's days are numbered. We've got crocuses (croci?) in bloom, the maple sap is flowing, and -- somewhere deep under the cold wet leaves -- morels are dreaming of warmer days to come.

Subscribers to our updates newsletter receive only these updates from our blog, Just Served, in their e-mailboxes. The rest of our little non-update screeds still go into the blog, but they no longer intrude themselves in our subscribers' mailboxes. Last month, we posted an article that purports to be about fishing -- but (wink wink) is really about writing: Speaks with the Fishes.

We also attended the Roger Smith Food Writers Conference last month and posted some of the videos here.

In the news, Dr. Vino explains why the earthquake in Chile will be felt here too: Chilean earthquake: wineries, tanks, bottles damaged or destroyed.

True gluttons for punishment should visit A Quiet Little Table in the Corner, a page that provides an ever-changing master index of any other web places that carry our stuff. The Quiet Little Table is hosted by Marty Martindale's Food Site of the Day, and you should check out some of the goodies she's got posted while you're there.

March is also the month in which we celebrate our Irish heritage -- whether we're Irish or not -- with green bagels, green beer, and corned beef and cabbage. We do this because not of those foods are Irish. Here're some vaguely appropriate excerpts from, or about to be added to, On the Table's culinary quote pages:

"Cabbage as a food has problems. It is easy to grow, a useful source of greenery for much of the year. Yet as a vegetable it has original sin, and needs improvement. It can smell foul in the pot, linger through the house with pertinacity, and ruin a meal with its wet flab. Cabbage also has a nasty history of being good for you." Jane Grigson

"It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes." Douglas Adams

"Uisce Beatha: an Irish or Erse word for the Water of Life. It is a compounded and distilled spirit, being drawn on aromaticks, and the Irish sort is particularly distinguished for its pleasant and mild flavor. In Scotland it is somewhat hotter, and by corruption in Scottish they call it Whisky." Dr. Samuel Johnson

"What butter and whiskey will not cure, there is no cure for." Irish proverb

March, 2010

PS: If you encounter broken links, changed URLs -- or know of wonderful sites we've missed -- please drop us a line. It helps to keep this resource as useful as possible for all of us. To those of you who have suggested sites -- thanks, and keep them coming!

PPS: If you wish to change the e-mail address at which you receive these newsletters, or otherwise modify the way you receive our postings, go here.

PPPS: If you've received this newsletter by mistake, and/or don't wish to receive future issues, you have our sincere apology and can have your e-mail address deleted from the list immediately. We're happy (and continuously amazed) that so few people have decided to leave the list -- but, should you choose to be one of them, let us know and we'll see that your in-box is never afflicted by these updates again. You can unsubscribe here.

PPPPS: Leitesculinaria has been redesigned -- and it still contains some of the best food writing and recipes around. So far, the redesigned site contains only a few of our own articles -- but, eventually, they'll all be here.

When writepaper reviews , make sure to highlight the main points. It is also essential to provide evidence from the article and use parenthetical citations to avoid plagiarism. Also, rereading the article can help you spot any mistakes in grammar and organization.
Including your own knowledge in paper reviews is a great way to give your own perspective to the topic. The goal is to present a coherent and focused story about the book or article.
The body of a review should be organized into paragraphs, and the introduction should present your review statement. The body of the review should describe your assessment and use evidence from the source material to support your claims. Your review is most effective when the structure is well organized, but it should not be too rigid. Make sure that you have outlined the main sections of the review, and you should cite sources using parenthetical citations.
