Jerusalem, fake burger and fried green beans: Today in Food

Don't miss these today at

  • Fans of the cookbook "Jerusalem" are already weighing in with how much they love this cookbook. Even if you're not looking for the latest falafel, the book's popularity raises interesting points about the power of social media to give old-tech printed books new relevancy. 
  • Robin Domeier's new column, You Asked for It, finds the tempura green beans from Local Dish in Fort Mill. I'll admit that I wasn't familiar with that restaurant - thanks to reader Ann Cricchi for shouting it out. 
  • Mmmm, burger raised in a petri dish. In my column, I ruminate over the latest news for ruminants.

And more:

Iced coffee.

Cooking classes and new flavors of mac-n-cheese.

A summer braised chicken. 

Mango pork tenderloin for 2.

And as usual: Searchable guides to past recipes, farmers' markets and pick-your-own farms.

Dig in.  Happy Wednesday.
