Biggest Food News Stories of 2012

In the sea of headlines you'll read throughout the day, few will likely have anything to do with food.

Unless that's your thing, of course.

But if you're like us, it is your thing, and you thrive on hearing news about restaurants and chefs just as much (or maybe more) as you would hearing about what's going on on Wall Street.

We've rounded up the five biggest food news stories to make headlines this year. Everything from the Twinkie Extinction to local names gone rogue. Guy Fieri's New York Times restaurant review? Yes, that made the cut too.

With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
