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.

• Considering your Passover spread? (Or maybe just considering it in the hypothetical?) Have a look at this fascinating point of view on restaurants that are anything but kosher. (Tablet Magazine)


While you're getting ready to do your own group rhubarb projects, check out these model preservers and their take on fruity self preservation. (L.A. Weekly)

Between Fergus Henderson and the Charcutepalooziers running around the food world, nose to tail has officially reassumed its place as a culinary way of life. Hold the phone, whole animalians -- what about seafood? Finally someone's proposing we eat the fish with the head on. (The New York Times)

Go spastic over these spaetzle -- even we (gasp) tire of pasta. (Smitten Kitchen)

• The beef debacle of late -- tainted meat, where it comes from, grass-fed vs. dry-aged -- has its roots in early America (it turns out.) We're reading What America's First Steaks Can Teach Us About Beef. (The Atlantic)

• We always wanted to know how many pieces of bacon we could be having ... alas. (Eating Well)

• Behold the death of fancy food as you know it (and our new favorite theory, The Brie Syndrome): When Class Meant Brie and Pears. (The New York Times)

We'd love for you to come visit us in NYC -- truly -- but for now, journey through your screen to the city's Little Italy of yore and satisfy your pangs for parmigiano (courtesy of the uber-popular Torrisi Italian Specialties on Mulberry Street whose promo video, mamma mia, takes us back.) (Huffington Post)
