"...7) Austin Urban Gardens (www.austinurbangardens.wordpress.com) Austin Urban Gardens covers a lot more ground than the name suggests; although there are indeed posts about building and working urban gardens, there are also posts on a score of other food-related topics, like what to do with what you grow, local chefs, cookbooks, farmers' markets, local food businesses, and, honestly, just about everything an Austin foodie is interested in. Great reading, and very professionally done...."

"...The Santa Fe School of Cooking in Santa Fe, N.M., teaches food-preparation techniques that your mother might not have passed along.

"...There's an open eGullet forum for all things Texas www.forums.egullet.org/index.php?showforum28 and one can easily look for Austin posts. The local chapter of eGullet participants announces its food-related, semimonthly get-togethers here (such as a pairing of port with food at member Foodie 52's house), and eGullet-friendly authors like Bourdain convene with interested eGulleteers over dinner when they are in town signing cookbooks...."

"...Favreau plays Carl Casper, the titular chef, highly successful and passionate about his food and his restaurant, but forced to conform to a money-grubbing owner's wishes.

"...These two trips really do fall under the heading of big-ticket items -- sort of the Austin foodie gift equivalent of the His and Hers section in the annual Neiman's catalog. But they are such grand gastronomic expeditions, surely someone out there should get them for Christmas...."
