Blogosphere: Food & Recipes

Tortilla de Patatas from Smitten Kitchen - This was a great recipe adapted from her new favorite Spanish cookbook, the New Spanish Table. I made it, and it came out delicious. It was not a quick recipe, though it was not too difficult. Best part? Leftovers that you can happily eat hot, warm, or cold. In fact, I'll be right back.

Halibut & Saffron Rice from Tiny Morsels - Looks mighty good, though I haven't tried it yet. It's on my radar for a future meal, though :-)

A Pig Farm - A beautiful post on farm life, pigs, and sustainability. An interesting quote from her post:
"Is it not ironic that we take naturally lean cattle, who just want to eat grass, and we raise them in feedlots to fatten them up while at the same time we take naturally fat pigs, and we breed all the fat out of them?"
Adults do the strangest things.

First NY Times Restaurant Review from Kottke - This is just funny. The way restaurants and food were regarded back in the day has certainly changed.
"The lights will be brilliant, the waiters will be curled and perfumed and gloved, the dishes will be strictly en r├Ęgle and the wines will come with precision of clock-work that has been duly wound up."
