Melted Chocolate BitersweetCooking this weekend and a couple really cool opportunities have opened up. Fingers crossed….

Now on to the news.

New Gluten Free Ice Cream sandwiches now to be sold at Whole Foods. From SFEXAM, by Tiffany James. A tasty sounding product for everyone that gluten is a problem for.

Customers still do not understand Pro-biotics. From Brandweek, by Stacy Straczynski. It is completely understandable that customers do not get the reason that they need to eat foods with pro-biotics. It is an education. I do like pro-biotics but it seems better to take them separately rather than in a product. Heat can change them and if there is any acid present it could effect the effectiveness.

From foodproduct, by Allen Susser. An article on how to change your salads to be more attractive. Nice and comprehensive. Well worth your time.

A healthy Mediterranean vegetable pie. From the NYT, by MARTHA ROSE SHULMAN. A nice article with recipe for a tasty sounding vegetable pie.

Fresh local Bartenders. From USATODAY, by Tina Dirmann. An article of how bar tenders have been moving toward items like Chefs.

Some good talent moving back to the FDA. From THEPACKER, if you are interested.

Thanks for coming by today and have a greet weekend.

Happy birthday Jordan!!!

Friday CRU-Culinary Roundup


From Reuters, FDA funding from Obama. We are waiting to see…

Peace love and Chocolate, From Berkshire Eagle, Wish I lived closer. 

We can not wait 45 minute with a rice cooker so now we have Uncle Ben’s Boil-in-Bag Whole Grain Brown Rice. From Brandweek. Buy a rice cooker and then you can do this without losing any goodness. It is so easy and you do not have to worry about the chemicals that they use to make this product cook faster.

Heres a question I have all the time… What can I do with this Pomelo I have in my kitchen. Thank you WSJ!

Good info on out of date foods. What should you do. Use your senses. Just because the date is off does not mean the product is. But be careful. From JSONLINE

Good job Kettle! From JSONLINE, Kettle foods is doing the right things.

I love studies that reinforce my addictions- Caffeine may kill off some skin cancer cellsFrom MSNBC

Thank you for hanging out with me today. Have a great weekend.

Peanut butter salmonella, mercury laden high fructose corn syrup, MRSA in pigs…oh my

Posted by chefmax on January 29, 2009


It has been a bad year for food safety so far. This article from the American Prospect covers the problems so far. I am hopeful the the USDA and FDA will go back to watching these issues and doing something before it becomes an outbreak. The Peanut plant has a horrible track record, but thats ok, allot of the peanut-butter was going to schools and retirement homes. Who has been watch the store????
