What we're reading
(New York Times) A spotlight on the U.S. South's newest eating destination. The food is described as a postmodern ode to the city's rich history. It's a delicous read and nice reminder than we don't have to look far to ogle brilliant and rule-breaking cuisine.
(Saveur) The most beautiful pictures of chocolate you'll ever see. Need I say more? (Caution: If you expect chocolate for Valentine's Day, viewing this will cause guaranteed disappointment on Monday)
(The Daily Meal) Clear winner of the list: The Jell-O Gallery in LeRoy, N.Y. Make it a sidetrip on your next trip to Buffalo!
