— For those looking to bake their own pies instead of ordering some for Thanksgiving, Bribery Bakery owner and head baker Jodi Elliott shared her baking tips with Statesman. She recommends blind baking and using uncooked apples for fillings.

— Texas sure does love its Whataburger.

— Barbecue fans rejoice: Yeti Coolers finally announced it is opening a store on South Congress right by the Nightwing Bat Sculpture. The flagship will include outdoor public space and host events.

— Austin chefs like Philip Speer, Paul Qui, and Callie Speer, rappelled down the side of the Omni in downtown Austin to raise funds and awareness for Shatterproof, a nonprofit dedicated to helping those with addiction issues, and Austin 360 was on the scene with photos.

— writer Barry Zukerman trekked out to the Texas to find out what real Central Texas barbecue is like, with stops at Louie Mueller (he was a fan of the short rib), Stiles Switch BBQ, La Barbecue (he noted the customers felt more youthful), and then Smitty's in Lockhart.

— Former Austin and Olamaie chef Grae Nonas’ new restaurant, Tullibee, is now open in Minneapolis within the Hewing Hotel. For a preview, he served up smoked tullibees, a local fish, and salmon, oysters, fries in duck fat, vegetables, and more.
