"How You Can Recreate 36 World Cuisines Using 3 Spices"

Interesting. And it's why the cuisines of Greece, Hungry, Louisiana, and "European Jewish" rule.

"Russ & Rye: [Re]Building the Jewish Bakery Tradition"

Authentic Jewish baking is making a comeback. (Link courtesy of my older daughter.)

"All the Bubbles! Polar Seltzer's Rebranding"

I found this interesting for two reasons. One, it's a story of a company apparently successfully repositioning its product.

And two, I'm an enthusiastic user of said product. Zero calories, zero sodium, excellent taste. The blackberry flavor and the lemonade flavor both have antioxidants and green tea extract added, and the lemonade has some caffieine, too. They're sweetened with sucralose, which used to disagree with me, but apparently I've built up a tolerance to it and it's fine, now.

"Scientists Say You’re Eating Your Burger Wrong"

I can't tell you how glad I am that we have scientists working on this profound problem.

"The Definitive Ranking Of Free Restaurant Bread"

They missed Bonefish Grill, but otherwise it's a pretty good list

"A Lot Of People On Twitter Are Really Confused About Why Target Is Refrigerating Its Doritos"

Mystery solved.

I love the Internet.

"The Invention of the Chilean Sea Bass"

I'm skeptical of the economics (toward the end), but the history is interesting.

From the same website see also "The McDonalds Monopoly Fraud".

"42 Ways Bay Cities Sandwiches Are Literally Heaven On Earth"

I find out, sadly, that I missed something really great when I lived in LA. (This link is better for the menu than the one provided in the article.)

"The Wonkblog guide to efficient drinking"

"On a buzz-per-calorie basis, sparkling wine is a winner."

"A Little Pizza Homework"

Possibly as much as you need to know to make good pizza at home

(Earlier posts here on this important topic: "How to make 'restaurant-quality Neopolitan pizza' at home" and "Jeff has finally reverse-engineered the perfect NYC pizza".)
