As we've made our daily way to post number 102, interesting stories have popped up that relate to one of our Savory Bites.

We had Bite 6, Sunrise Bakery: Brilliance on Main Street where part of the brilliance is the superb, smooth Illy espresso drinks that Kristy Matherly and the staff pour. The Wall Street Journal ran a story about Andrea Illy, the company's president, Brewing Just-Right Espresso.

We had Bite 57, Reasons We Can (or Freeze, Dry, Ferment) - Or Not, and Bite 79, Homemade Ketchup: Done. USA Today joins us in the pantry with Local food movement spurs canning trend. The Pittsburgh Gazette goes one better on the food preservation topic with Root cellar revival: Chatham University wants people to dig this low-tech tradition.

We had Bite 61, Packing Heat in Veggie Form: Bhut Jolokia Peppers at the Lexington Farmers Market, a sturm und drang story about smuggled seeds, hand grenades, writhing in agony and other dark pepper-ish topics. The New York Times explains some of our fixation on foods that burn, in A Perk of Our Evolution: Pleasure in Pain of Chilies.

We had Bite 80, They Make Hardwood Look Easy - And Delicious, and Bite 80, Can Food Save Cities? It May Save a Town, both of which revolved around a particular axle of argument in favor of food carts in our city. The Wall Street Journal reported on another form of vehicular dining: Busing Tables, and Diners Too.
