however JM Curley in Boston does it, nice dark fry on that...

Win a Copy of 'The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Vegetable Cookbook'

My dear mother never met a pot roast she couldn't destroy. The carrots were not only the only salvageable part, they are the best veggies to ever come out of that kitchen. I eventually got her to make just carrots and, basically, caramelize them over many hours. Now I make them and if I ever have kids, they'll eat their damn carrots if I make them like this!

Why Beer Costs What It Does

Great read! I was hoping it was more focused on the production side but the restaurant was far more interesting than I would have thought.

If you're taking requests, I would love to see more about craft beer in retail settings. I feel like craft beer is more expensive than it used to be, but is it (relative to macro beer/other goods)? If so, why? If not, why can't I get a 6 pack of something tasty for under $10 (in MA - that doesn't help any)?

Taste Test: The Best Caesar Salad Dressings

Telling readers what to avoid is as important as what to seek out, in my opinion. Then again, that could limit future sponsorship potential, a wise editorial decision indeed.

Ideas in Food vs. Strawberry Shortcake: Reinventing the Biscuit

Nice, I love the books and can't wait to have some blog posts with substance (I like the Ideas in Food blog, but it's a pretty light read most of the time).
