Link time!

The Blue Pear sent around an e-mail saying that they will be offering a new “Baby Blue Pear” 3-course meal option (soup or salad, main course and dessert chosen from their 5-course menu). And, it’s only available for 5-6 pm reservations and Sunday evenings. No price was listed. (Edited to add: Price is $59, thanks to a post on Chowhound.)

Canadian TV food personality and cookbook author Laura Calder got a James Beard Foundation Awards nomination!

The Guardian’s Jay Rayner reviews the new Pot Noodle (instant ramen) flavour – doner kebab. Ew.

Serious Eats started an interesting series on reducing food costs and cooking meals with a friend (and using the results for later meals).

Choosy Beggars wrote about 5 ways to enjoy unwelcome beer.

Liane Faulder wrote about the Wecan Food Basket Society. Sounds like a fantastic idea that I would love to participate in, but their hours are all during the work day and there’s no way I could get to the locations which close at 5 p.m. or 6 p.m., or even drop off my order during their opening hours.

The West Michigan Whitecaps recently unveiled their new stadium menu, featuring a 4489 calorie, 1.66 pound burger. Can we all say heart attack?

And finally, a bit of promo on my part – the Serious Eats pizza blog, Slice, linked to my Famoso post.

  1. Congrats. First visit to Famoso and your experience makes you famous!

    Interesting to hear about the smaller menu option at Blue Pear, maybe we can convince them to offer the 4489 calorie burger.

      I would definitely be interested in a later pick up! My only question would be ease of access though. Bus access would be good, but what about parking?
