What I'm Reading Today

So, have you awoken from your turkey coma yet? I'm back and cooking (and of course eating) again. Here's what I'm reading today.

Salumi is all the rage everywhere these days. Huge varieties of salami, guanciale, and lardo are all showing up on restaurant menus. Today's SF Chronicle has an article about the porky trend and a great looking recipe for Salami Filled Gougeres. Gougeres are French cheese puffs, made with a dough called 'choux', the same dough used in profiteroles. This savory version is a perfect appetizer with a bubbly Champagne or Prosecco.

In today's NY Times, Mark Bittman writes an article about finger foods, rolled finger foods in particular. He has some of his signature simple and tasty recipes for snacks like Eggplant and Feta Rolls or Smoked Salmon Rolls with Ricotta and Chives. Quick ways to get big flavors when your friends drop by this holiday season.

Who isn't going to read an article called "Bacon Recipes Galore!" Gotta love the LA Times. There is a huge, growing, list on the site of Bacon recipes-you too can add your favorite. I'm totally intrigued by the Apple Bacon Coffecake. I'm generally not a fan of cooked apples but this I might just try.

That's it for today. Happy Reading and Happy Cooking
