In case you missed any of these, here’s a rundown of the most-read food stories from The Sacramento Bee this week:

•  Shipping-container design too raw for midtown Sacramento:

“There will be no oom-pah-pah heralding the opening of Der Biergarten at 24th and K streets, planned for early January. You’ll merely hear beer steins clinking and drinkers conversing, followed by the sound of customers dispersing to an early curfew.”

•  A tour of Sacramento’s vibrant tamale scene:

“As beloved as the classic pork tamale wrapped in a corn husk may be, Sacramento is home to many different tamale styles. So, let’s put on a scarf, rev up the car and take a drive to some tamale hot spots around town.”

• Bake perfect sugar cookies every time:

“Sugar cookies are a holiday mainstay, but how do you bake perfect treats every time? With Christmas only a week away, there’s no time for mistakes — or burnt cookies.”
