CHG Favorites of the Week

Food Blog of the Week
The Kitchn
We link to the Kitchn all the time in Tuesday’s Megalinks comps, but never highlighted it on its own until now. Part of the Apartment Therapy empire, it’s a gorgeous, well-designed cooking blog that, in past years, has been a little upscale for my everyday use. Lately, though, it’s been on a total roll. Recent articles on rental kitchens, ways to build flavor, and stocking a vegetarian pantry have been aces, to say nothing of the recipe lists. Definitely worth a daily visit.

Food Comedy of the Week
Jim Gaffigan on Food
I love Jim Gaffigan. I love food. Together, they’re an unstoppably delicious comedy force. From Indiana.

Food Quote of the Week
This week, it’s three from the greatest romantic comedy ever, Say Anything:

Diane Court: I just can't have any social life right now.
Lloyd Dobler: Don't worry about it. We're just having coffee. We'll be anti-social.
Diane Court: Be friends?
Lloyd Dobler: Yeah. With potential.

Constance: Why do you eat that stuff? There's no food in your food.

Lloyd Dobler: I got a question. If you guys know so much about women, how come you're here at like the Gas 'n' Sip on a Saturday night completely alone drinking beers with no women anywhere?
Joe: By choice, man.

Food Movie Clip of the Week
The Critic’s Dinner scene from Ratatouille
Another fantastic suggestion from the Julia Child cookbook giveaway. If you haven’t seen the movie, DO NOT watch this. It’s a key scene - possibly the best in a great film full of ‘em.

Totally Unrelated Extra Special Bonus of the Week
The Simpsons New Main Title
This past weekend marked Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie’s first venture into high definition television. To celebrate the milestone Groening & Co. redesigned the intro for the first time in almost 20 years. Be on special lookout for the crazy cat lady, the evil monobrow baby, and myopic comedy sensation Hans Moleman. Great stuff.
