    The Next Grand-Palooza Knife Fight Event Extraordinaire -- Minneapolis 2017

    I'll be there. I picked up a couple of blades since the last one that don't get nearly the use they deserve. If it's in MPLS, I might be able to line up something cool through some guys that Chuckles knows.

    carolina Gold rice?

    Geechie Boy is awesome and potentially a game-changer in terms of grits if you're used to the bland, powdery stuff. I like Carolina Gold and think it's worth it for hoppin' john and jambalaya, but I see the arguments about its cost and marketing.

    Food Fraud

    The straw-man consumer that the article sets up is a pretty low bar IMHO. It's pretty easy to know if your olive oil is the real deal, for example, and I would guess that the claims about only two sushi restaurants in America serving the fish they claim are more than hyperbolic. Jon knows the...

    Shig deba, Marko suji

    Honestly surprised that the suji hasn't gone yet. It'd be mine if I didn't have one on order.

    coarse stone

    The Beston 500 needs permasoaking and regular flattening/resurfacing if you want it to feel like anything other than dragging your knife down a sidewalk. It gives good results, but the feedback is painful compared to the Gesshin line.
