National Geographic's new food site offers a pretty baller look inside Norway's arctic Svalbard Global Seed Vault, with a focus on the storage facility's latest addition: SPACE BEER. —Niki Achitoff-Gray, Associate Editor

I enjoyed this video about the seders Wise Sons Deli throws in San Francisco. I attended one last night—such delicious brisket! —Maggie Hoffman, Senior Editor

In the spirit of Passover, this story about the Polar Vortex causing a gefilte fish shortage (er, shortage of the fish used to make gefilte fish, that is) is both slightly amusing and slightly terrifying. —Jamie Feldmar, Managing Editor

It's a week old already, but Kim Severson's piece about Vidalia, Georgia's famous onion crop, and farmers' struggle to get the onions to market sooner in the season, was a fascinating read. With a Trisha Yearwood cameo to boot! —Ben Fishner, Ad Operations Admin

My boyfriend and I have a rule when it comes to fighting: HALT. We table all talks if one of us is hungry, angry, lonely, or tired because those moods will exacerbate any issue and more than likely blow things out of proportion. Good to see the science backs this up —empty stomachs correlate to short fuses. Goes to show a certain nougaty candy bar had it right when they say, "You're not you when you're hungry." —Leang Chaing, Sales Operations Manager

You thought the New York Times sexy chicken photo was good? These heritage bird portraits will be up your alley. —Max Falkowitz, NY Editor

You know those highly accurate Buzzfeed quizzes, like Which Deadly Creature Are You? and What Kind Of Beer Are You?, well that format is now available for all to exploit use. So that explains why there is now a quiz asking What Chicago Craft Cocktail Bar are You?. For those who care—and you really shouldn't—I'm apparently The Barrelhouse Flat, which is okay by me. —Nick Kindelsperger, Chicago Editor

A question I've never thought to ask, but I'm glad someone else did:
"What Happens When You Throw a Peep Out an Airlock?"—Robyn Lee, AHT Editor/Art Director

David Lebovitz's cookbook My Paris Kitchen finally came out (and we're featuring recipes from it all week!) and I'm very, very excited for my copy to arrive. It was nice to read this piece about the difference between blogs and cookbooks (and what people might be looking for in either) as well as get a sneak peak into his process. —Carrie Vasios Mullins, Sweets Editor
