ALLTOP FOOD-Featured

 

One of the kings of restaurants, Daniel Boulud. From the NYT, a really good overview of his empire and the next spot to open. 

Are chocolate and spam recessions proof? From Boston.com, the home staples are up as far as sales. More items that bring value and comfort are all doing alright when it comes to sales. During tougher economic times, people eat at home more and treat themselves to small rewards. Lipstick, chocolate, cheaper wine. 

Ginger reduces nausea for chemo patients. From Healthday. Ginger has always been used to help in digestion and it is not surprising that it can help in the reduction of nausea within the chemo environment.

A tiny new mellon. From Mail online, a very cute little watermelon the size of a cumquat. 

Plant based bottles are being looked at by Coca Cola. From ajc, an article by BOB KEEFE. Coke is taking steps to have less of a plastic foot print. Good steps but it is going to take them at least 10 years. Mixed emotions.

Thanks for joing me today. Have a great day,

Chef Max
