    Border Springs Farm’s Craig Rogers raises lambs with love

    2/27/13 | Charleston City Paper

    If you had to be born a sheep, you’d probably want to be born somewhere remote in New Zealand, on a farm that uses only your wool and leaves you alone for 99 percent of the year. The shearing might be slightly traumatic, but being a sheep, you’d probably forget that it had happened as […]

    Charleston in charge

    2/25/13 | NY Post

    The historic, walkable, (pleasantly) spooky Lowcountry port city of Charleston, S.C., earned the No. 1 spot on CondĂ© Nast Traveler’s “Top U.S. Cities” list for the past two years, and in 2012 readers named it their favorite city in the world. In the world? Really? New York City ranked a measly No. 5, so it all seemed a bit suspicious . . . until we saw it for ourselves.

    Brock: Pig Roast Means Being ‘Part Boy Scout, Part Caveman’

    2/25/13 | Eater.com

    The endlessly quotable McCrady’s and Husk chef Sean Brock broke down pig roasting for Popular Mechanics. Yes, there are details about secret spices and ideal hogs (that’d be Berkshire or Tamworth Cross), but there are also some fantastic Brockisms: “A pig roast is like a big party where you get to be part Boy Scout, part caveman. You can’t do it by […]

    How to Cook the Whole Darn Pig

    2/22/13 | Popular Mechanics

    A pig roast is like a big party where you get to be part Boy Scout, part caveman. You can’t do it by yourself, and that’s the beauty of it. You’re sitting in lawn chairs, telling stories, and tending a huge fire all night long. It’s the opposite of fast food. Nothing makes me happier.

    101 Best Restaurants in America 2013

    2/20/13 | The Daily Meal

    There are some 200,000 full-service restaurants in America, so it’s no small task to determine the best ones. A storied Northern California palace of perfection? A counter in Brooklyn where an intimate 24-course tasting menu is prepared by a moody chef? A Texan ‘cue shop that sells out of brisket the moment it opens? What factors make one restaurant better than another? Can you compare a roadside burger joint with an urban fine-dining restaurant whose theme changes every few months? And how do all these restaurants stack up against each other in a list of the 101 best? “Best restaurant” lists are tricky, but answering these questions is what the third annual list of The Daily Meal’s 101 Best Restaurants in America sets out to do.
