Food news roundup

Market Restaurant’s got hives, but the buzz is that they’re a good idea. The News & Observer (Raleigh, N.C.) writes that the Raleigh restaurant has started a CSApiary with beehives on its roof. Read more here.

The Charlotte (N.C.) Observer travels around the world in four potato salads here, because they’re more American than apple pie for Fourth of July picnics. Taiwanese apple and ham…mmm.

From brick-and-mortar restaurants to metal-and-rubber food trucks to – pedal-and-foot bikes? Food delivery by bicycle is the next thing, says the Independent Weekly (Durham, N.C.) here.

Make slow-cooked barbecued pork without getting the vapors outdoors in the heat, says the Charleston Post and Courier. Find the recipe here.

OK, if you insist on being stereotypical for the Fourth, the Winston-Salem (N.C.) Journal has recipes for palm-sized versions of apple pies that you can eat while wandering your picnic. Read more here. Just watch out for Yogi Bear.

Pop a cold one and have a good read about libations. The Kansas City Star has a review of new books on the topic here.

The Hub and I are fans of Stormchasers on the Discovery Channel. All I’ve ever seen these guys eat is beef jerky from gas stations, but Reed Timmer (in “The Dominator”) offers his Top Ten Tornado Alley Restaurants here. Just in case, while you’re on vacation this summer, you need to consume a 72-ounce steak. (No vegetarian restaurants – big surprise.)
