November 9 Morning Roundup

Thoughts on the hunting and cooking of grouse, octopus dumpling adventures worth following (featuring an æbleskiver 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.
