British Larder: This crispy cod cheek sandwich with fennel and kohlrabi slaw drew me in (see photo at left). Now I just have to hunt down the cod cheeks. —Lisa

Liquor.com: Being a retired bartender, I totally appreciated this informative video about all the hard work that goes into those classic (and expensive) cocktails. —Lisa

Memories in the Baking: I love croquettes, and these Cuban papas rellenas, deep-fried bites of mashed potatoes filled with picadillo, are really calling my name. —Christine

Civil Eats: The Sweetwork Project gives Harlem youth the opportunity to work at a co-op grocery store inspired by the same business model as Good Vibrations, California's sex toy company. —Amy
