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

We were alerted to this Scottsdale-based blog about customer service from an ex waiter who spent many years in kitchens and he's ready to tell his stories and get yours on Amazing Service, Really. We thought that his post on Front of the House (FOH) versus Back of the House (FOH) titled A House Divided Cannot Serve was thoughtful and insightful for those of us who might not have worked in the hospitality industry.

If you have extra jack-o-lanterns or other various winter squash lying around, here's a very French recipe to get your taste buds excited. It's Pumpkin Soup with Gruyere from Carolyn Van Slyke of Boho Farm and Home. She served it to some party guests and they begged her for the recipe. This might be a perfect make-ahead starter dish for Thanksgiving.

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.
