What San Diego Foodstuff Has Been Reading Online

Do you know what to do with garlic scapes? Where do the curious names of Chinese dishes like “bean curd made by a pockmarked woman” come from? Should you really refrigerate chocolate chip cookie dough for 36 hours?

Lately, there have been some particularly interesting stories on food, or perhaps I just have found some extra time for reading. Regardless, if you haven’t come across these already, check them out:
