CUESADo you want a great resource for what is in season? Here is a link to CUESA that has a Vegetable and Fruit calendar that is very usefull. For full disclamer I am one of  their Sunday Supper  Chairperson and love their programs, farmers markets, and of course the Sunday Supper event. Anouther great resource is this website that you can put your area of the country and it will show you what is in season around you. Tons of info. It is at Sustainable Table.

Is black garlic the new black? From SFGATE, By Lynne Char Bennett. A good overview on a cool ingredient that I now have to track down and play with.

If you are into Latin cuisine this is a must attend conference. From Business Journal, the Culinary Institute of America is having a conference at their San Antonio campas this October. I use to work at the St Helena campus and have been involved in 6 of their last 11 conferences there and I can absolutly garenty that you will  learn a ton on this topic.

Severely Obese rates in kids have tripled in the last 25 years. From Healthday,a scary article on obesity in kids. We have to do something.

From NYTIMES, I just like Melissa Clarks writing. Well worth your time and good ideas for chamomile.

Have a great day. I have to get back to writting recipes for a possible book deal.
