Australians Truffles, from LATIMES By Krista Simmons. A nicely written article on hunting the Périgord truffle in the southern forest of Manjimp Australia. I wish I was there.

From the Chicagotrib, By Judy Hevrdej a brief overview of rice and rice related terms. Kind of introductory but if you have any questions about rice this is not a bad place to start.

The Mediterranean Diet may be the best option to help out type 2 Diabetes. From Healthday, By Serena Gordon. Eating healthier under this type of structure has been shown to reduce the need for some of the medications and also is associated with lower heart diseases and cancer rates. Very hopeful.

Will climate change hurt the US crop yields? From foodnav, A study by two economist on the effect of the rising temperatures in the US and a reduction of 30-46 percent of current yield because of this weather. Instead of fighting about whether it is real, man made, or just natural accruing cycles in the earths history, could we just plan for this to happen and take steps to prevent or reduce the impact now? If you have ever been to LA in the summer time and your lungs hurt so bad it is hard to breath, then you understand that humans do have an impact on the earth.

Twitter food. Do you have a favorite twitter Chef you are following? What would you like to see more of from a food blog? I am @chefmax on twitter and would love to be more informative and helpful to my friends and followers. I have a recipe website A Flash in the Pan and you are reading my blog so you know about that. Is there anything that you really want ot know about  food, wine, Napa Valley, cooking schools, ect…Thank you for you feed back.

Have a great day,
