August 7 Morning Roundup

Kate in the Kitchen plays with the Demy, a touchscreen-based recipe gadget, a brilliant-looking Crispin Cider brined pork and braised kohlrabi recipe posted by A Good Appetite in response to our Summer Grilling Adventures contest (entries due Aug. 16, get grilling), Bill Roehl gently pans the pho at Cam Ranh Bay, Simple, Good, and Tasty teams up with Chef J.D. Fratzke from the Strip Club to make The Boozy Garden cocktail, Donnay chevre and wild brown trout over at Trout Caviar, and Mecca lauds her Vietnamese go-to place, Pho 79.
