There are as many different ways to make a lobster roll as there are people to eat them. A recent contest in NYC demonstrates all the ways you can mess that shit up. Celery? Brioche? Old Bay? (Seriously, USers, y’all need to put down the Old Bay.) [Serious Eats]

And the killer is… sprouts. German authorities link the recent e.coli cases back to bean sprouts. [Toronto Star]

Will the new upscale beer boutiques be a boon for craft brewers and the folks who love their products – or will it be more of the same old swill the big beer corporations push? [Toronto Star]

The Orlando Parks Department reminds you not to feed: pigeons, squirrels, alligators, homeless people. [The Palm Beach Post News]

Roadkill – it’s what’s for dinner in Illinois. [Mother Nature Network]

Best comment ever; “Couldn’t they just cancel Morrissey’s appearance and use his performance fee to buy everyone a hotdog?” Yeah, Morrissey is at it again, demanding that food vendors at a summer music festival not sell or cook meat anywhere on the festival grounds on the day he’s performing. Don’t worry – he’s refused to set food in Canada until we do away with that pesky seal hunt. [The Guardian]

Pho is known to be a cheap and hearty meal – so what makes this bowl worth $5000? [Bon Appetit]

Moms have been getting all the flack for childhood obesity, but could it be Dads who are undermining the whole thing? [Daily Mail]
