Here are some highlights on The Straits Times' food website - ST Food, straitstimesfood.com.

WAGYU PARADE

More than 500 Japanese cattle paraded around a ring in Sendai City, Japan, to win prizes in categories including best beef cattle and most fertile cow.

Fertility is judged by the shape of the cow's shoulders, the tone of its legs and the flatness of its back.

HURLING BLACK PUDDING

The World Black Pudding Throwing Championships took place last week in northern England.

The tournament, which dates back more than 100 years, centres on knocking Yorkshire puddings off a plinth by hurling blood sausages at them.

RECIPES TO TRY

Follow The New York Times' recipe for a corn and clam chowder with zucchini and herbs.

The chowder is inspired by a Tuscan vegetable soup and includes polenta.

And, unlike most other clam chowders which start with a base of bacon and milk, this one does not contain the cured and smoked pork and calls for creme fraiche or sour cream in place of milk.
