If It’s Tuesday, It Must Be Food Day


Tuesday is production day for the food section. Even though I’ve already edited our local stories, it’s the day when my editor reads my editing and makes corrections, when we proof stories and recipes for the last time, and when we choose other articles from the wires to fill out the section.

I think we’ve got a nice mix coming for tomorrow. Our lead story is on cooking with summer berries. Other cover stories include one on a woman who leads Indian cooking classes; one advancing the African-American foodways festival at Stone Barns and Philipsburg Manor Sunday; and the latest installment of our <a href=”http://www.lohud.com/chef” target=”_blank”> Chef’s Dish column, </a> where Jeff Raider, the chef at <a href=”http://www.thegarrison.com/index_content.html” target=”_blank”> Valley Restaurant </a> writes about tomatoes.

We also have a nice selection from the wire, including variations on gazpacho (with cool recipes), a story on the popularity of hot dogs (with recipes for chili-onion topping and sauerkraut), and a good read out of New Hampshire, where some farmers are using a web site so people can place orders for their produce and pick it up at the farm market later in the week.

Pick it up tomorrow (or check out the LoHud.com food page — the link is on the right on my blogroll) and tell me what you think.
