Food news roundup

Clip and save (maybe not if you’re accessing it online; don’t whack your screen) the excellent roundup of Triangle microbreweries in The News & Observer (Raleigh, N.C.) Even more amazing than the number that are filling taps and kegs now is that four more are in the works. Read it here.

At the Charlotte (N.C.) Observer, Kathleen Purvis writes about how the so-called improved and easier-to-read food labels are neither. It’s here. By the way, her recent poll on the one kind of food you could eat for the rest of your life didn’t include what I would pick: Seafood.

Journal offers several recipes, including one with a dairy-free “cauliflower ricotta” made with tofu. See what you think here.

The Independent Weekly (Durham, N.C.) includes one eater’s attempt to follow the 10 Percent Campaign, a drive to encourage people to spend 10 percent of their food dollars on locally sourced food. Read about it here.

Oysters. See second paragraph above. Mmmm. The Post and Courier (Charleston, S.C.) has recipes from a recent oyster contest. Anchovies are involved in one, for double the seafood. Read about them here.

Great googly moogly! There are buns at JanNorris.com today, and I don’t mean the ones surrounding two all-beef patties. She writes about Butlers in the Buff, the perfect assistants for the busy hostess. Start planning your party here.

The Tool of the Month at KitchenGadgetGals is something that may be useful for your Super Bowl party. Check it out here.
