You keep telling yourself the same thing every evening after sluggishly rolling home following another eight-hour day on the grind. As you hoist another slice of warmed over pizza or a forkful of lukewarm brown… something to your lips, you think, “I can’t keep eating frozen dinners every night.” Beyond being deeply soul-crushing, frozen “bang-em-out” […]
The pair previously had been sentenced to three months each in jail for their role in a salmonella poisoning outbreak in 2010. The culprits admitted to knowingly shipping eggs with false processing and expiration dates to fool state regulators and retail customers about their age, and to bribing a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) inspector at least twice to approve sales of poor-quality eggs.
When the city council of Santa Fe, New Mexico, placed a measure on the local ballot to tax sugary drinks earlier this year, the soda industry responded quickly, pouring $1.3 million into the anti-tax campaign. To cover their bases, industry lobbyists also pursued a back-up plan: they backed a bill in the state legislature to strip local governments of the power to levy such taxes.
Adjacent to my organization’s headquarters on the Elizabeth River in Norfolk, Virginia, is a picturesque neighborhood called The Hague. Two decades ago, The Hague would flood only during severe storms. Now, it routinely floods during high tides.
The budget sent to Congress Tuesday for fiscal year 2018 puts the country’s schizophrenia over feeding hungry citizens back on the agenda — this time in the guise of defunding food programs for seniors, millions of whom are homebound, ill and unable to cook or shop.
Clovis advised Trump on agricultural issues during his presidential campaign and is currently the senior White House advisor within the USDA, a position described by The Washington Post as “Trump’s eyes and ears” at the agency.
Planning meals for a family — or even a couple — isn’t always as simple as it sounds. You’ve got to come up with a meal idea, find a recipe, pick up ingredients — then you’ve got to do it all over again the next night. Blue Apron wants to take the stress of worrying […]
Thanksgiving is a throwback to that misty past. It requires a Zen-like acceptance of the present and what is. Gratitude is the order of the day. This is a full-glass holiday. To be healthy, educated and living in America is to have one’s cup running over. For that, let us give thanks.
“The ‘new style’ of Irish cooking incorporates a lot of outside influences, such as Asian and Thai, as well as all sorts of ingredients from continental Europe.”
Malinda Russell wrote “A Domestic Cook Book” in 1866. Abby Fisher wrote “What Mrs. Fisher Knows about Old Southern Cooking” in 1881.
While most studies have concluded that cutting salt would have benefits, about a third do not agree. And researchers on both sides of the issue tend not to take the other side’s findings into consideration.
At about 500 locations across Italy, you can get gas, go to the bathroom and then, very likely, have a better dining experience than at most Italian restaurants in the United States.
As well as their nutritional importance in potentially tackling chronic health conditions such as obesity and diabetes, legumes also play a major role in agriculture through their nitrogen-fixing capability and water efficiency — improving soil quality and reducing the need for chemical fertilizers.
The history of nutrition often heralds Wilbur Olin Atwater as the Father of American Nutrition, but he had a daughter, Helen Woodard Atwater, who made her own mark on the world of food, though few know her name.

One of the misconceptions about active people, especially long-distance runners and cyclists, is that they don’t have to worry about how much they eat. They’ll stay slim and trim automatically.
The region of Navarra in northern Spain is home to two cultural events whose reputations have risen beyond popular to mythical, each year attracting the rompish and pious in droves.
No one is really “born” a cook or a baker or a candymaker. Not even the world’s culinary stars. Trust me. I have scars and scorched pans to prove it.
We’re not talking about spring break-drinking here or the kind of drinking one might have done while on tour with an arena rock band in the ’70s. We’re talking about thoughtful drinking, more about tasting than getting your buzz on.
When alcohol and cheese meet, feel a chemistry and fall in love, it is a marriage made in heaven. And that’s what you want when you pair cheese with beer, whiskey or wine.
Two cookbooks crossed my desk recently, and they were, individually and collectively, the most pretentious things I’ve ever seen. It is as if they were competing for some sort of international award for affectation, and they were both tied for first place with nothing else even remotely close.
