One Thousand Appetizers Served

Here's an interesting milestone: since the inception of this weblog in July 2003, I have posted a whopping 1,000 "Appetizers," the daily links to food stories, recipes, and ephemera on your right (archived here). I'm not sure whether this is an achievement to take pride in, or a measure of an obsessive interest in food that has no limits! Let's take a positive view and go with the former interpretation. After all, the Appetizers must go on!

With this landmark accomplishment in The Food Section history, I thought I would take a look back at some memorable links past. Below is a sampling of notable Appetizers from the last 15 months -- one link for each month since the birth of this site.
