Keep New Times Free

Plasma Cutting A Coffee Roaster, Texas Sheet Cake and A Salmon Lunch Bento

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

We've been enjoying following Joe Johnston's love affair with coffee via his online documentary, The Roaster Project. His latest post shares the plasma cutting work that Acme Metal Works in Gilbert did to the roasting bowl of the coffee roasting amaze-machine.

How about a little chocolate cake with your coffee? Everybody needs a good Texas Sheet Cake recipe and Meagan from Scarletta Bakes looks like she has a winner. We think she'd make J.R. Ewing and Matthew McConaughey proud. If you haven't been on the blog lately you have to scroll through previous posts for some super clever Arizona-style baked goods like Candied Jicama Breakfast Muffins and Pinyon Sandies.

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

We were happy to see a post from Lunch Bucket Bento; there hasn't been one since February and the light and summery salmon with grapefruit and fennel salad was a nice intro to hot weather lunch ideas.

Hey metro Phoenix eaters, if you have a food blog or know of one we've missed, leave word in the comments section.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
