Slice's Revue of Reviews from 2010

Slice Adam Kuban 2 comments

Items on this site tend to roll off the page pretty quickly, sometimes disappearing before you've had the chance to check them out. That's fine with goofy pizza-related news items, but our reviews are another thing — I don't want the pizza-obsessed out there (that would be you) to miss any opportunity to try a killer pizzeria. So I've gone back through the Slice archives for 2010 and have indexed all the reviews in one handy post. Hope you discover something new! More

2010 in Spirits and Cocktails: Mezcal, Tiki's Comeback, and Friendly Bartenders

Drinks Paul Clarke 4 comments

The last five or so years have been dynamic ones in the world of spirits and cocktails; which makes it kind of surprising (to me, anyway) that 2010 was relatively quiet. Among the trends that do seem genuinely worthwhile, tequila and mezcal continued their climb in prominence, tiki made a big comeback, and perhaps the most interesting development of 2010, is how hospitable and friendly craft bartenders have become. After years of deadpan stares, bartenders seemed to realize that, hey, maybe it's a good idea to be nice to the customer for a change. More

Chicago Daniel Zemans 5 comments

Pizza and I had a wonderfully productive year in 2010, so much so that narrowing my list to 8 proved to be a challenge. I'm happy to report that 2010 beats out 2009. I can only dream that 2011 will raise the bar even further. More

The Year That Was: Top 10 Burger Labs in 2010

A Hamburger Today The Serious Eats Team Post a comment

The initial idea was to round up the 10 most popular posts on A Hamburger Today from 2010. Unsurprisingly, they all ended up being Burger Lab posts, save for one. (Yes, we love Kenji a lot.) So instead, we present you with the 10 most popular Burger Labs posted in 2010, as determined by unique pageviews. More

The Year That Was: Slice Pizza Poll Standings for 2010

Slice Adam Kuban 5 comments

At one point more than a year ago, Slice'r famdoc suggested we do a weekly poll. We really started this feature in earnest in 2010, with a pizza-related question for you each Monday (minus a few weeks we missed).

Some polls were great and revealed more than we thought they would (like the charring one, which was like a group therapy session). And some polls ... well ... all I can say that in coming up with a new topic week after week there are bound to be some stupid ones here and there.*

Gathered here are most of this year's polls, with their current standings. Please note that many of these had 3 or more options, so "winning" percentages may not be 51% or higher.

Also note that if you feel strongly about any of these, the polls are always open, so go vote if you want to sway the outcome.

Agricultural Predictions for 2011

Leah Douglas 1 comment

Over the past few weeks, food blogs have been doling out predictions of what trends were big this year, and what will be hitting our plates come 2011. Well, none of these trends could enter the zeitgeist without some solid agricultural production in the new year. So that's what I'm here to share: a drier, but arguably more important, look at upcoming food and agriculture trends. More

When Food Trends Get Out of Control

J. Kenji López-Alt 21 comments

There comes a watershed phase in the life of every trend in which the concept begins to wrest control from the flavor, and that's the stage at which we'd like it to stop, please. Case in point: some Korean tacos we had in the office this week. More
