Brew that coffee! Pour that OJ! And settle in this morning to catch up on what's happening in the world of food. Here's what we're reading (and watching) this week.
• We're on board with the importance of reforming school lunch in the U.S. -- here's a behind-the-scenes video that sheds light on this critical issue. (The New York Times, City Critic blog)
• From our 7th floor perch in Manhattan, we can't help but daydream about what lunch would be like if our Union Square Greenmarket was in L.A.: artichokes in the farmers' market and a seasonal recipe. (LA Weekly)
• Enough of this health kick: have you ever wondered what would happen if you sandwiched a peppermint patty inside a homemade brownie? Perhaps only we have -- and David Lebovitz answered our cry with his Chocolate Mint Brownies. (David Lebovitz)
• And thus, we leave you with a morning's worth of armchair travel to the sunny food mecca of Sicily. (Saveur)
