Random Food Report: Bronzeville's Clout Dogs

1. The [Elzie Higginbottom] Dog.


2. Graceless In Chicago.

"Would you pay $21 for a green tea? Well, if you were cultured, you would, you goddam heathen. But since we can't take you out anyplace nice, let's instead swig our swirled leaves with Ryan Sutton, the food critic for Bloomberg News and enjoyer of one fat night in Chicago."


3. Northbrook's Food Patriots.

"When Jeff and Jennifer Spitz's son got sick from eating contaminated processed chicken, the first thing they did was spend more than a month growing increasingly frustrated and scared as he fought the antibiotic-resistant bug the chicken had given him," Michael Gebert reports for the Reader.

"The second thing they did was start making a movie about it. Specifically, as they tried to increase the amount of natural, nonprocessed, nonfrightening food in their lives by growing vegetables and raising chickens, Jeff, an experienced documentary filmmaker who teaches at Columbia College, began documenting it on video, both their own efforts and that of others, mostly in the Chicago area, including urban farms such as Growing Power and City Farm.

"The result is a feature-length documentary called Food Patriots, intended to inspire people to increase the natural food in their lives by 10 percent."

4. The Flying Saucer Food Drive!


5. Japanese Apple Mayonnaise Burgers Are Reportedly Not Gross At All.


6. Shrimp Inflation Is Killing Red Lobster.


7. The Chinese Aren't Eating Enough Oreos.


8. Old Chicago Sets Montana Pizza Record.


9. Emmet's Brings Chicago-Style Pizza To NYC.

And then takes on Antonin Scalia.


10. Seattle Has A Hot Dog Style.

"As soon as Craig Bagdon mentions the Seattle-style hot dog - an all-beef dog with cream cheese and grilled onions - a customer eating one a few seats over gives two thumbs up. But on the menu at Chicago Beef Company, the Seattle dog is just about the only Northwestern item: As you might guess from the name, it's all about Chicago food," the Inlander reports.


Comments welcome.
