Mmm, Midweek Links

• OMG! You must go download The Joy of Cooking Humans, a zombie cookbook from Bake and Destroy!

• Business POV interviewed "Check Please!" executive producer David Manilow about CheckPlease.tv and his hopes for investment to bring the site to a national audience.

Michael Nagrant interviews Carol Wollack of Sola at Hungry Mag.

• Where can you take a cheesemaking class near Chicago? In Wisconsin, of course.

• Time Out has a preview of the coming Nia on Randolph Street.

312 Dining Diva summarizes the top local star-getters in the new Mobile Guide. Not surprisingly, Trotter's and Alinea get top marks.

• Centerstage lists where to get food in bulk for your Super Bowl party.

• Speaking of the Super Bowl, this week's One Good Meal column provides alternatives to your standard hotwings.

• And speaking of hotwings, Chicago MenuPages blog rounds up the early word on Jake Melnick's Corner Tap's super-hot wings.

• The Food Chain reports on the Matchbox's great deal on griottines, booze-soaked cherries. Mike Sula also examines the scientific approach to veganism.

• If you're a foodie, you've probably already seen this, but just in case, Slice's list of regional pizza styles is excellent, and includes all three Chicago-indigenous styles (deep dish, stuffed and Chicago thin).

Chicago Bites hits Machu Picchu.

Chicagoist reviews Pilsen's Azteca.

Kelly the Culinarian tries out local mini-chain The Patio.
