November 9 Morning Roundup

Thoughts on the hunting and cooking of grouse, octopus dumpling adventures worth following (featuring an √¶bleskiver pan!), Eating Animals points out that the USDA is not, repeat not the US Department of Animal Welfare, the Whitest Thing That Ever Happened*, the Second Whitest Thing That Ever Happened, a review of India Palace in Eden Center, the Captain’s Chair brews what Napolean’s troops called “the champagne of the North” while invading Germany, a cat eating leeks, not to stir stuff up, but Red Pepper gives Lyndale Tap House a “meh,” and Mecca briefly reviews Bar La Grassa. *Not food related. Too funny to miss, though.
