This week I had no trouble finding great posts from faraway places. I am listing three of my favorite posts and also one from the previous week that I only discovered this week, but it's too good to pass up.

Molly from Boston has a blog called My Madeleine in which she chronicles her working from the bottom up in the restaurant biz. Her post a sweetbreads overkill really makes you feel the buzz of a restaurant kitchen, it's a feast for the senses.

David in Paris cracks me up yet again with his post about fresh shelling beans. For anyone who has ever bought an ingredient and used it once, this post will surely ring true.

Continuing the theme of beans is a post all the way from Malaysia. Boo_licious makes an edamame mint pesto pasta that looks and sounds divine! Check out this tantalizing recipe and photo.

Finally, a post from Alberto the Italian blogger living in German and the father of "Is My Blog Burning?". Last week he posted his "ten (food related)things to do before you die:the Italy for foreigners list". As someone who once lived in Italy I wholeheartedly recommend his list and his wonderful post.
