This week's selection of food news stories and commentary from around the Internet. And yes, some of them involve Thanksgiving:
The New York Times tracks a trend that warms our hearts here at Voracious: Rural hunters are teaching urban food geeks how to hunt boar and deer. Our favorite quote: "Until recently, tree stands and Mossy Oak camouflage were rarely mentioned in the same breath as, say, heirloom tomatoes."

The Ocean Spray staffers may not be prepared to hear your family horror stories, so stick to the cranberry queries.
Salon launches Salon Food, having plucked the amazing Francis Lam out of the ashes of Gourmet to run the new section. Right now it's a mix of original essays, mostly by Lam, and food-related AP stories.
