KRANJ, Slovenia - It's a diplomatic rift that has both countries hungry for a fight. The subject of the spat? A humble pork sausage. Slovenia calls the spicy delicacy "Kranjska klobasa" and Austria "Krainerwurst" - variants of the same name that belongs to the border region the sausage comes from. Both countries have enjoyed the snack for centuries and consider it part of their cultural heritage. Now, Slovenia has applied to the European Union for exclusive use of the name, and the Austrians are having none of it. "We're not going to allow anyone to deny us the Krainer," declared Austrian Agriculture Minister Niki Berlakovich.

This weekend I tackled David Chang's phenomenal bo ssam roasted pork butt from the Momofuku cookbook, with all the fixings, plus some homemade steamed buns. The pork was amazing, like salty-sugar glazed pork candy. But I was really proud of these buns: Just look at these steamy little guys! Chinatown at home! Reader: What would it take for a three-bell restaurant like Le Virtu to get four bells?

WASHINGTON - Mitt Romney takes a hard line against congressional earmarks, but the Republican presidential candidate had a more favorable view of federal pork-barrel spending as governor of Massachusetts. Under Romney's leadership, Massachusetts sought tens of millions of dollars in earmarks for transportation projects through the state's congressional delegation.

YORK, Pa. - Imagine foosball and ping-pong tables, a jukebox, and a Golden Tee golf video game circling a craft-beer bar redolent with the aroma of pulled pork, bratwurst, and sausages. It's the ideal man cave - only public, and coming to the National House, a historic site at Market and Beaver Streets. Scheduled to open in late winter or early spring, the taproom is the brainchild of Scott Eden, 40, of Spring Garden Township, a lawyer who hopes to perpetuate the city's craft-beer movement, spurred by the recent openings of the Mudhook and Liquid Hero breweries.
