What a menu:
White meat chicken florentine in a delicate sauce with garden greens. Shredded white meat chicken in a savory broth with garden greens. White meat chicken and whipped egg soufflé with garden greens. Sound tasty? It's the new "Elegant Medleys" line of cat food from Fancy Feast, being pimped by none other than Mr. Restaurant
himself, Rocco DiSpirito
. So: a new way to show those kids in fur coats
how much you love them, or just a bunch of overpriced hooey

Food blogs and online foodie journals
gained a cyber-foothold with the now defunct Julie/Julia project. Now, even Gourmet Magazine
have sung their praises. But all is not just decedent descriptions of cooking in France
, culinary adventures in the far east
of the gastronomic variety. Foodie blogs can help an expat cope with food in England
, procrastinate law school
, learn to make your own chocolate
(or if you don't want to go to the effort, find out which chocolates are the best
. Some foodies are going through culinary school
, some have recently finishes
, and some are rather familiar
to food network addicts. But whether you're looking to learn all about cheese
, compete in the community-wide Is My Blog Burning?
, or just enjoy simple beautiful reflections on food and related botany
, there's plenty of food porn
out there for you.

had a pretty interesting article (wish it was up on line) about farm-raised salmon v. wild salmon. Farm-raised salmon is scary, especially with regards to disease
, waste handling
, food (feather meal, blood meal, bone meal and other things that wild salmon do not eat) and an industry which is controlled by a very small number of multinational companies.

Food For Thought For Serious Foodies And Would-Be Pros: Egullet.com
is mainly written by
professional cooks for
professional cooks but
obsessive, perfectionist gastronomes like you and I can join in too. It's delightful and delicious; like a MetaFilter for fussy gluttons, over-curious gourmets and gastro-porn addicts. Today, celebrated chefs Dan Barber
and Michael Anthony
, currently wowing New Yorkers at the Blue Hill
restaurant, will be answering questions from hoi-polloi such as ourselves. My question's already in...[ From the August issue of Food and Wine magazine, where Michael Anthony was interviewed as one of the best new American chefs.

Is "Gourmet" The Best American Food Magazine?
Lookit all the nominations it's got! It's certainly got a lot better since Ruth Reichl
started editing it. Reading about its history one gets to know what American foodies were cooking, eating or just drooling over in the 40s
(Let no one pretend, after reading this potted history, that food used to be better in the old days). Still, for my money, the best food magazine in the world, better even than the French Saveurs
, is the scrumptious, San Francisco-based upstart Saveur
, whose online version has recently become extremely generous. Like most people I rarely try out a recipe - I just read it as virtual gastroporn
. In fact, it's the only magazine I actually collect.
