Today marks the publication of my fourth article at Serious Eats and the one that I'm most proud of so far. My goal as Memphis Correspondent is to show the rest of the world that there's more to our cuisine than just ribs, pulled pork, and fried peanut butter banana sandwiches. At the same time, I care a lot about our local BBQ restaurants that attract people from around the world.
Since this is how I tend to order when I'm escorting a visitor on yet another Memphis BBQ marathon, I chose to focus on delicious non-pork menu items at some of those establishments with the 8 Best Non-Pork Dishes at Memphis BBQ Joints.
Also, congratulations to the winners of the 2012 Wine Blog Awards! I didn't win my category but I was in great company and hope you check out all of the winners and finalists. Lots of them attended the Wine Bloggers Conference in Portland, Oregon where the awards were announced. There are plenty of recaps and hundreds of tasting notes waiting to be read.
