Towards the end of the year, it’s no surprise there are a slew of “best of” lists. So here’s a rundown of some of the best of the “Best Ofs.”
- The Kitchn compiles the Best Food Stories of 2008. How could we forget Cindy McCain’s Recipegate or the Salmonella scare?
- Leite’s Culinaria rounds up the best food books of 2008: including A Day at el Bulli by Ferran Adrià and Eat Me: The Food and Philosophy of Kenny Shopsin by Kenny Shopsin.
- Time Out Chicago has a list of the 100 Best Things they ate in 2008 – and there’s even a PDF Print-Out so you can see how many you ate as well. This gives us some ideas for 2009.
- Food & Wine goes nationwide with their best restaurant dishes of 2008, including entries from Chicago’s own L20 and Takashi.
