Link Feast: 12.12.08

More great writing from the Guardian, and then a couple of random links.

Helene Darroze at the Connaught - When a critic compares a meal in your restaurant to being leg humped by a sex-starved terrier for three hours, um...that's a bad review.

Africa's hungry tribe - Not all great food writing is about truffles and fois gras. Nor should it be.

Dinner party? Don't make me laugh ... - Two of my favorite subjects — food and Ricky Gervais.

Lunchbox Auction by Gourmet - Groovy celebrity lunch boxes by the likes of Mario Batali and the Beastie Boys.

Le Tour du Chocolat - Both the content and style of this article make it a pleasure to read.

Thanks for the Tour de Chocolate link. I'll be in NYC next week, have been to the Pierre Marcolini store there but didn't know about the Michael Cluizel. Now I have my chocolate stop planned. :-)

The Cluizel store is at ABC Carpet and Home which is a destination in itself, so you're getting 2-for-1 on that deal.
