  • [March 27, 2015] March Hares Hopping on the Rabbit Bandwagon

    Rabbits aren't just for snuggling. They are, in fact, for eating. Though rabbit meat's last heyday (at least in the United States) was during World War II when most of the beef was shipped to troops overseas, the consumption of rabbit meat is again on the rise. While some might find the notion of eating something so cute quite difficult to stomach (Whole Foods' decision to start selling the white meat at select stores in 2014 was met with boycotts and protested by groups such as the House Rabbit Society), the meat has historically been embraced by different cultures and...

    TV’s smartest chef, Alton Brown, is ending his blockbuster show after more than a decade. More than 250 episodes later, Brown has achieved his goal of tutoring the masses, introducing terms like “hygroscopic,” “Maillard reaction,” and “polyphenol oxidase” into the vocabulary of the average home cook. He was the first TV food personality to get cerebral about groceries, helping viewers get to know the properties of ingredients and how best to manipulate them for maximum taste. (What other chef would use Tinkertoys to explain sugar crystallization?) Brown and his wife, DeAnna, built the Good Eats empire from scratch, shooting the...

    Pasta has topped a global survey of the world's favourite foods. So how did the dish so closely associated with Italy become a staple of so many tables around the globe? While not everyone knows the difference between farfalle, fettuccine and fusilli, many people have slurped over a bowl of spaghetti bolognese or tucked into a plate of lasagne. Certainly in British households, spaghetti bolognese has been a regular feature of mealtimes since the 1960s. It's become a staple of children's diets, while a tuna-pasta-sweetcorn concoction can probably be credited with sustaining many students through their years at university. But...

    Marietta food guru Alton Brown announced yesterday that after 249 episodes, he is shutting down “Good Eats,” a Food Network staple since 1999. Beau Benton, his spokesman, confirmed that “Good Eats” will no longer be a regular series though Brown does plan three one-hour specials this year. He said Brown was not available for interviews. Brown’s “Good Eats” has been a standard dish on Food Network’s menu for years, frequently in prime time. A fast-paced, intricately-created concoction, the show provides viewers with food history, cooking tips and oddball trivia on a single topic in Brown’s signature light-hearted and frequently sardonic...

    KEENESBURG, Co. (KUSA) - "I don’t know what made me do it. The devil I guess," she said. Flora’s sister, Rose, found the hot dog when she opened the suitcase back up in Idaho, where she lived at the time. "She mailed it back to me telling me to keep my garbage at home," said Flora. The game was on. In the years that followed, Flora would find a way to sneak the hot dog back into Rose’s life. And Rose would find another way to sneak it back to Flora. "I found it under my pillow once, I found...
