Exploring the Culinary Lifestyle

Thursday Food News-Godiva Chocolates, Foie Gras wars, molasses, Detox Diets, Metals in foods, and Sweet Tea.

Fast today. I have not had much time.

Here we go,

I loves me a good molasses article-From the Chicago Trib

A book about the Foie Gras wars. It all comes down to your own personal conscience. From the Boston Globe, an article on the big food fight over this much sought after food icon. My personal feeling is that it is brutal, but only slightly more than the way way we handle corporate meat farms. Only a vegetarian can really be in a position to fight against this one. If you eat any animal protein it is a tough position to stand against. 

Godiva Chocolates is using social networking to listen to what their customers want. From Business Week

Detox Diets may not be all that good for you. From USA Today.

Metals in foods may impact children’s behaviors. From Food Nav. Metals in our foods? There are good ones, but there are some that should not be there. (such as arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury). They should just have those in our vaccines…WTF!

And finnaly, Sweet Tea. Nestle is investing $15.6 million into Sweet Leaf Tea. Yum… From the Statesman.

Talk to you all on Friday,
