Food Day - Halloween edition

Boo! It's food day! Here's what's going on this last day of October:

Great American Growth: As Tom mentioned on his chat last week, and in Dish today, the Great American Restaurants group will be opening up another restaurant, their 10th, this time out in Reston. Named after corporate chef Bill Jackson, who is suffering from Lou Gehrig's disease, "Jackson's Mighty Fine Food" will be found at Reston Town Center - it's expected to open in September of 2008.

Two for the Times: The Old Grey Lady's food section has two really good videos today; for once I actually like Mark Bittman's Mimimalist video - probably because he's roasting bone marrow with Fergus Henderson.

In addition to that, Louisiana's hottest chef (sorry Emeril), John Besh, has a great video on how to make grillades and grits. It's a great video and you'll learn how to make a wonderful breakfast.

Old Wines, Young Sommeliers: This is a great article about the rise of younger sommeliers in Boston which I really put up to convince my friend Agatha to take sommelier courses.

Sigh, instead of wasting all my money on wine, I really should save up to take those classes and get certified.
