OK, now it’s time for news and notes, since I forgot to do that yesterday.
* Check out Alison’s Oscar-themed menu for tonight’s Academy Awards. (I swear, if Avatar wins, I’m throwing a fit. ) Also, from Bon Appetit, the five best food moments in this year’s movies. “Julie and Julia” obviously tops the list.
* An LA Times story on celeb chef Wolfgang Puck.
* Because I love a good crock pot article, a piece from the Wall Street Journal on the late author of “Crock Pot Cookery.”
* A blog post from Mark Bittman on dining in Buenos Aires. I want to go!
*A write up on a “Psychological Science” study about junk food taxes and how they may be more effective than food subsidies.
