Juice Worth the Squeeze: Five blood orange dishes while it's in season

Posted By on Tue, Feb 7, 2012 at 8:45 AM

With the blood orange, its the inside that counts.

  • With the blood orange, it's the inside that counts.
The blood orange is the kind of food I've always pictured sailors suggesting as a cure-all for scurvy. The crimson flesh and juice have a vitality that lets me know, like Groundhog Day, I can make it through another six weeks of winter. Around town, blood orange dishes and cocktails are popping up on menus — there are five possibilities after the jump (please add any others you've recently enjoyed in the comments). If you're looking for the play-at-home version, Saveur recently wrote a nice love letter to the unique member of the citrus family, with plenty of recipes.

It's not winter until you're wrapping your hands around a warm mug of hot chocolate. Back in 2009, we sought out some of the finest representatives from gas stations and grocery stores and restaurants across the metro. This week, we've decided to update the list with some new options and five cups of hot cocoa that are a mug above.

5. Aztec Hot Chocolate from Hi Hat (5012 State Line, in Westwood Hills) — The tiny coffeehouse in Westwood Hills (the recent site of a cash mob) makes a spicy, rich hot chocolate using bark from the Aztec dark chocolate sold next door at Annedore's Fine Chocolates. Call ahead; it's a winter special that's not always on the menu.

Posted By on Wed, Jan 11, 2012 at 9:30 AM

This is one of the finest roasted chickens in the city.
We don't all get the chance to huddle around a fire and wooden spit so often these days; but there's still something primal and comforting about roast chicken. And unlike the caveman days, you're not left hoping you get the burnt side instead of the raw side before the advent of the rotisserie. This winter, here's five roast chickens that are worthy of being called your dinner.

Jack London penned an entire short story about how a piece of steak might have made all the difference in a man's life. But the real difference maker in chefs' lives these days is pork. Certain parts of the pig remain affordable and versatile, meaning you're always going to see pork belly and shoulder on menus around town.

The five stages of Runza

The Runza sandwich is a handful.
  • The Runza sandwich is a handful.
In the shadow of McDonald's, the green and yellow awning of Runza beckons cars from Johnson Drive. The Nebraska chain has been dishing out bierock (which they call a Runza sandwich) in Mission since May, but I've managed to steer my car past without a second thought. That all changed yesterday when it was 2 p.m. and I had a serious hankering for crinkle-cut french fries. The good news is that their fries are the best version of the crinkle-cut fries that you remember from school lunches — hot, fatty and salty. As for their signature sandwich? I'm still trying to figure out what I think of it.

  • Somewhere, someone's drinking a pork cocktail.
Life, on occasion, resembles The Onion. And when the news that Mark Wahlberg and his family had opened Wahlburgers in Hingham, Massachusetts, came across the transom this week, I assumed that this was a beautiful internet mock-up of the beefcake.

If Hollywood has taught us anything, it's that Americans will consume something until they are sick of it and then move on to the next thing (think Disaster movies, Lost imitators and Eliza Dushku vehicles). As a result, there's only a short window for other celebrities to jump on the bandwagon and launch restaurants based on their names, but here are five that we think could get something up and running fairly quickly.

It's not right to steal candy from babies — this we can all accept. But children, especially your own, are absolutely fair game on Halloween. We have a responsibility as adults to check and taste candy. As such, here are five tips for pulling off a successful candy caper from the tiny ghosts and goblins in your life (note: this is not a guide to bag jackin' — that ground has been covered).
