Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

A round-up of tasty morsels from Valley food blogs.

Phx Rail Food went to La Bocca downtown Tempe recently to give the Mediterannean/Italian eatery another visit -- just three blocks from the Mill/3rd Ave rail station. With an emphasis on sourcing some local ingredients, the smaller plates highlighted Queen Creek Olive Mill olives and Crave Ice cream. The whole review can be found here. Jess Harter of Mouth By Southwest shared the news of singer and Americal Idol runner up, David Archuleta's, visit last weekend. Apparently he was in town to perform, if you're a fan, here's the link to the signed paper cap and video from his performance.

Chef/nutritionist Michelle Dudash packed up her jeans and headed to The Greenbriar in West Virginia last week to attend the Symposium for Professional Food Writers - jealous. She recounted many of the meals she ate throughout the week packed with people and food and people talking about food. Find out what conference food looks like for a gathering of food writers.
