Our favorite morsels from the food blogs.

Gratuitous cruelty alert: Unless you relish the sight of a sharp wooden implement piercing an animal's heart, and that same implement piercing a fellow animal's freakishly swollen liver, do NOT peek at the Beer & Nosh pic of foie gras and duck heart on a stick from last night's Mission Street Food dinner.

Gratuitous pain alert: Hot Food Porn serves up a slice of kitchen verité, the first in a promised series of in-the-trenches stories of life on the line (restaurant line, that is). Here's a blood-smeared taste: I have just cut off 1/3 of my middle fingernail and part of my flesh into a sea of 1 mm by 1 mm brunoise chopped red peppers with my Wusthof Classic Santoku (I knew I hated that bloody knife).

Gratuitious headache alert: In case you overdo it this weekend, Nate Courtland of LA Weekly's Squid Ink grinds out a hangover remedy classy enough to mask as brunch: Spanish tortilla with basil aioli. Reads like it'd go great with a beer.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
