  • First off, a short film produced by Joe York called “Cured”. It’s a mini-doc about Allen Benton, the ham and bacon producer based in Tennessee who found fame thanks to his beautiful foodstuffs. David Chang even raved about it for a few pages in his cookbook. File under: WANT.
  • We mentioned a few weeks ago that Montreal resto Joe Beef has their own Tumblr. Looks like their friends at Cabane À Sucre are following their lead.
  • And finally, here’s a new word to impress your wine friends/fiends with: minerality.
