Often those of you who read Dining@Large regularly already know whatever news is in my Table Talk column, which appears in the Taste section on Wednesdays.
But today I write about something unusual that I hadn't mentioned on the blog, a local gospel group that decided to open a soul food restaurant for the betterment of their community. ...
I also found out about the Prime Rib and Petit Louis being open for Thanksgiving dinner for the first time this year through comments you made, so thank you very much. If any others have come to your attention let me know.
As usual, Top 10 Wednesday has a few reader comments as well as the list. Reading them reminds me once again how odd it was that a few people got insulted by John's list of signs that you're a foodie. Especially since he's even more of a foodie than I am. At least I never cooked with Jacques Pepin.
But back to Table Talk for a moment. Of course, the page designer had to run the photo of Immeasurable, the gospel group; but I get to use the picture of the homemade ten-layer yellow cake with chocolate frosting, which looks a lot like a delicious Smith Island cake to me.
