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.

• You learn something every day: we always wondered how the bark of a tree was turned into those tiny plugs for our favorite elixir. So that's how corks are made ... (

• The story behind our queen of gluten-free (with whom we partnered on this week's contest) as she flourlessly found love. (Gilt Taste

• Ever find yourself ranting on the wasteful 15-second life of takeout containers or bought food packaging? Behold the Austin grocers pioneering a zero waste, package-free system. It's about time we think of the fish. (Good

Feed52 is so well done - enjoy reading the intro. to the stories as much as the stories themselves. I can't wait to try Dorie's ruffly eggs w/a side of bacon.

Happy to see more stores encouraging their customers to reduce/reuse.
