Food news roundup

Have you wondered, as I have, if Kate and William received enough Corning Ware as wedding gifts? No matter who got married or where, my mother always gave Corning Ware. She surely would’ve put a set in the the mail to the royals, were she still around. If Corning Ware isn’t your go-to give for those setting up households – it’s wedding and graduation season – The News & Observer (Raleigh, N.C.) has excellent suggestions here. It’s also in the Charlotte (N.C.) Observer. I’d add one bit to the list: Parents, friends and others with good recipes could compile them in a book for the grad or groom (or bride, if you must be conventional). I did such a book for some friends – just plastic-sleeved pages in a ring binder, nothing fancy in the presentation – and they really appreciated it.

After visiting Midtown Olive Press in Raleigh, N.C., every person I talked to said the same thing: How can a store that sells nothing but olive oil and balsamic vinegar possibly stay in business? Find out in the Independent Weekly (Durham, N.C.) here.

Those who seek flavor seek the rooster – the poultry-adorned bottle of red Sriracha. The Winston-Salem (N.C.) Journal has an article on a new cookbook using it here.
