weekly round-up of our favorite finds from the front lines of food
- Because winter is not over yet, March is National Noodle Month. (not to be confused with National Pasta month, which is October, duh.) Food52 has some delicious suggestions, like Viet Hapa Pho by Furey and the Feast (above).
- At the Bay Area Center for Asian American Media’s 2013 CAAMFest, the “Emotional Eating” program will screen seven films from North America and Asia about food and all that goes with it. Showing at Sundance Kabuki, in San Francisco.
- To keep going on the east-meets-west theme, a new bar in London called Mizuwari has opened up featuring Japanese whisky (yes, that's whisky made in Japan). Miss Whisky give it a thumbs up.
- Picking wine and other alcohol off a list is everywhere, but picking a particular breed of beef that way is news. Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland has started to offer a breed book for diners to choose their beef. "While this makes our job a little more complicated because we have to source from farmers from all over Scotland, having a weekly change of breed gives us a chance to be more flexible," said Mr Howie. "There are issues with low breed numbers for the likes of Galloway or Highland cattle so, in some instances, we will wait until the time is right, while larger herds such as Luing or Aberdeen Angus are more readily available."
