    Oct. 17 (UPI) -- A surprised customer at an Australian restaurant recorded video of a pelican casually wandering into the eatery and patiently getting in line. Jack Simpson captured video at the Cargo's Wharf Restaurant in Kiama, New South Wales, when a pelican walked in through the door and joined the crowd in line. The pelican got out of line after a few moments and wandered around the shop, with a crowd of onlookers following. The bird was eventually escorted out of the eatery without incident.

    Grocery Dive ^ | October 2, 2019 | Jessica Dumont and Jeff Wells
    The company has a blank slate to create a fresh, differentiated experience. But its success in a saturated industry is not guaranteed. The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that Amazon has signed more than a dozen leases for grocery stores in and around Los Angeles, citing anonymous sources close to the company. Amazon has not confirmed the news or released any information publicly, but if the reports prove accurate, its newest brick-and-mortar business could launch as early as the end of this year. But what will the chain really look like and how will it operate? What will it be...

    Bill Penzey, the controversial owner of Penzey’s Spices, emailed his customers on Thursday to inform them he’s been selling bad chicken soup base that needs to be recalled.

These were sold from 3.16.19 onward. If you have one of these jars, don’t use it and see the instructions below for your refund. We just needed to mail this notice to our customers who are chicken soup...

    ...we did some very delicate drilling to produce enough ceramic powder and then treated it with a chemical technique that extracts molecules called lipids... from the fats, oils and waxes of the natural world and are normally absorbed into the material of the prehistoric pots during cooking, or, in this case, through heating the milk. Luckily, these lipids often survive for thousands of years. We regularly use this technique to find out what sort of food people cooked in their ancient pots. It seems they ate many of the things we eat today, including various types of meat, dairy products,...
  • First UK Chick-fil-A outlet to close in LGBT rights row

    A US fast-food chain will cease trading at its first UK outlet amid a row over donations to anti-LGBT groups. Gay rights campaigners called for a boycott of Chick-fil-A, which opened its first branch at The Oracle shopping centre in Reading on 10 October. A spokeswoman for the centre said "the right thing to do" was to not extend the restaurant's lease beyond the "six-month pilot period". Chick-fil-A said its donations were purely focused on youth and education. The family-owned company, founded in Atlanta in 1967, is one of the biggest fast-food chains in the USA and boasts about 2,400...

    My address to the Colorado Independent Cattlemen’s Association I’m not a cattleman and I’m not going to pretend I know everything you are facing. But I do know that the major weapon being used against your industry is the misnamed control devise called Sustainable Development. I know why and I know who the players are. I hope I can leave you today with some ideas on how to fight them. To begin, let’s set the terms and make one thing very clear. The use of the word sustainable may sound like a comfortable term, not threatening. After all, you, your...

    HARTLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- It's a place where thousands of families go every year to celebrate fall. Now, Spicer Orchards northwest of Detroit, Michigan is dealing with a crime like no other in its more than 50-year history. Someone stole more than 22,000 apples off acres of trees under the cover of darkness. After running the orchard for more than 50 years, the Spicer family has learned that you only pick apples when they are perfectly ripe. As harvest time nears, they check the apples every few days. On Sunday, October 6, the apples in the farm’s supplemental orchard on...

    The diet helped Andrew Flinders Taylor lose weight—but is it safe? “Make your food boring and your life interesting.” That’s one lesson Andrew Flinders Taylor points out in a Youtube video he posted last December, where he detailed all of the things he learned after eating potatoes for every meal, every single day, for nearly a year. That’s right: Potatoes all day, every day. The potato diet sounds absolutely crazy, but for Taylor, who weighed in at 334 pounds when his experiment began, it led to noticeable results. The Australian native dropped 117 pounds after one year of the “Spud...

    A healthy foods concept has selected Houston as its next spot to bring its salad-making robot — aptly named Sally. The Salad Station, a Louisiana-based restaurant group, has partnered with California-based Chowbotics to bring salad-making vending machines to Houstonians. Chowbotics invented Sally, which serves customizable, made-to-order salads, snacks, breakfast bowls, and grain bowls. Scott Henderson, founder and president of The Salad Station, tells InnovationMap that the discussion with Chowbotics about being the company's operational manager started in 2018. "In seven states, from Texas to Florida, The Salad Station does operations for Sally the robot," says Henderson. "We both have a...

    VIDEO I had been intending to make a cast iron pan pizza for a long time but kept putting it off for what might seem like an incredibly silly reason. Namely I never made dough before and for some weird reason I had a fear of working with yeast because it is a type of bacteria. Well, after I worked with the yeast and the dough, I saw just how absurd that fear was and also how easy it is to prepare dough for pan pizza. With that out of the way, the rest was easy. The great thing...
  • U.S. regulators allow genetically modified cotton as human food source

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. regulators on Friday gave the green light for genetically modified cotton to be used for human consumption, paving the way for a protein-packed new food source - edible cottonseed that tastes a bit like chickpeas - that its developers said could help tackle global malnutrition. The Food and Drug Administration's decision on the cotton plant developed by Texas A&M University scientists means it is allowed as food for people and all types of animals. Texas A&M AgriLife Research plant biotechnologist Keerti Rathore said the scientists are holding discussions with companies and hope to have the plant...

    President Trump lauded the partial trade agreement he struck with China this week, calling it the “greatest and best” deal in a tweet Saturday morning. As part of the deal -- which Trump and President Xi Jinping could sign as soon as next month -- China agreed to raise its agricultural purchases to between $40 billion and $50 billion from $8 billion to $16 billion and to make certain reforms on intellectual property and financial services. The U.S. will not raise tariffs on Oct. 15 from 25 percent to 30 percent. It’s still unclear whether Trump plans to halt another...

    I posted recipes yesterday for chocolate pudding cake, which is by its nature eggless. One person freepmailed and told me that a young relative is highly allergice to eggs and she was very happy to have that recipes. So, I figured that a thread with many eggless recipes may be useful to people with egg allergies, or those cooking for people with such allergies. Observant Hindus also do not eat eggs, and then of course there are vegetarians who for various reasons may not eat eggs. So, in honor of the young relative who is highly allergic to eggs, here...

    Steak and potatoes, creamed spinach, a stiff drink: the menu at your average steakhouse hasn’t changed for over 100 years. Americans flock to these palaces of meat, whether they’re upscale chains or a neighborhood spot whose décor hasn’t changed since the Reagan administration. Despite some falls in consumption in recent years due to price increases and health concerns, steak is still a very big deal in America. This week we’ll take a look at the steakhouse, an American institution. Our modern steakhouse has two direct ancestors, the beefsteak banquet and the chophouse. Both arose, interestingly enough, in mid-19th century New...

If you think that’s stomach-turning, check out these other weird or even deadly ingredients found in common food products. Baguettes with a side of opium Just last March, shoppers in France were warned against purchasing bread that contained a dose of opium. Health officials were puzzled about the unexplained presence of the drugs in poppy seed baguettes and ready-made sandwiches made from poppy seed bread. Poppy seeds don’t usually contain opiates and government investigators posit that...

    HOUSTON (KTRK/CNN) - Houston police are searching for a group of people who demanded Popeyes chicken sandwiches at gunpoint Monday night.

The group left a baby inside their vehicle as they tried to enter the restaurant. There were no injuries reported. Police are trying to develop descriptions of...

    The idea behind fast food is speed and efficiency. When it comes to fast-food chains, McDonald’s is always on the cutting edge of getting people fed quickly—too quickly, some say. In the rush to gobble down food, much of the joy of eating is lost. Fast food is a soulless commodity that neglects the spiritual appreciation of flavor and taste. It can turn what should be a dining place into a biological fueling station. The bad news is that it has just gotten worse. Just when you think the fast-food giant has reached a peak of efficiency, it comes out...
