Food news roundup

Lots of news in The News & Observer (Raleigh, N.C.) today. Chef David Mao, late of The Duck and Dumpling, will open a dumpling and noodle shop. Unfortunately, it’s in what has become the Bermuda Triangle of restaurant locations, the corner of Hillsborough Street and Oberlin Road (Red Hot and Blue was the latest victim). I hope Mao has had someone come in to remove the bad karma. Also, there’s information about a new local cookbook and a James Beard writing winner with local ties. Read it all here.

What cooks learned from Mom is the subject at the Charlotte (N.C.) Observer. Good thing I didn’t listen to my mother’s cooking tips, or I’d be leaving fried chicken on the counter in 90-degree heat for five hours and making sure every Wednesday is Salisbury Steak Night. I still can’t go near a pressure cooker, thanks to her (didn’t you know they’ll explode??). Read memories from the children of less odd cooks here. It’s in the N&O, too.

The Winston-Salem (N.C.) Journal has easy ways to make main-dish salads, good news for me, since I am drowning in leafy greens. Read more here.

In Oregon, they call them hand pies, but we call them turnovers. By any name, they are delicious and easy to make, if you follow the instructions in today’s Portland Oregonian. Start here to make savory or sweet hand pies.
