Food Sites for September 2020

Thursday, August 13, 2020

July’s blueberries, popped in the freezer, ready to drop into a late summer cocktail.

If you were injudicious enough to overdo the planting of zucchini—last Spring—you’re probably overwhelmed and exhausted now that Summer’s days of reckoning have arrived. It’s no easy thing, trying to find ways to sneak giant green submarine-shaped vegetables onto the porches of unsuspecting friends and neighbors each night. Have you noticed that nobody has ever crept, under cover of darkness, to abandon surreptitious baskets of berries at anyone’s front door?

Penwipe Publishing is still on staycation, but it hasn’t stopped our incessant scribbling. Our blog has posted two new short stories this month; one is part of a book-length collection, and the other has no connection with anything else. 


Disclaimer: These stories have little more than a trivial connection to food. ”You Don’t Know Beans” might be the foodier of the two, but don’t expect to raise an appetite while reading it—and “The Whale in the Room” has much more to do with punctuation than what might populate one’s plate.

We’re also including an especially apt podcast, below, to entertain you during the on-going pandemic.

You can, if you wish, follow us on Facebook (where, among other things, we post a LOT of photographs), and Twitter. Still more of our online scribbles can be found at A Quiet Little Table in the Corner. There’s even an Amazon author’s page, mostly about our food writing.

“It’s summatime, summatime, summ, summ, summatime,” at On the Table’s culinary quote collection:
Summer cooking implies a sense of immediacy, a capacity to capture the fleeting moment. Elizabeth David

No dish changes quite so much from season to season as soup. Summer’s soups come chilled, in pastel colors strewn with herbs. Florence Fabricant

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 who have pointed out corrections or tasty sites (this month we’re tipping our hat to Dianne Jacob), 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 or—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’ll find links at the bottom of this page to fix everything to your liking.
