Word from the Twitterverse is that Laurelhurst Market, Nong's Khao Man Gai, Beaker & Flask, and Garden State are all featured in the April issue of Cooking Light. Operatives have been unable to rustle up either a physical copy or figure out Cooking Light's website enough to find exactly which recipes are listed, but a quick mental run-down of the kind of dishes found at each of these places--pork belly sandwich at Laurelhurst, chicken 'n rice khao man gai at Nong's, blood sausage-covered mac and cheese at Beaker & Flask, meatball hero at Garden State--and it's boggling the mind at how any of these could ever possibly be considered light. So, consider this a call for explanation, a cry for help. Either Cooking Light is playing Opposite Day, or something's changed since last operatives ate. Clarifications? Comments? Type lightly, but do wield a big carrot.
