'France is a Feast': Photo exhibit celebrates Julia Child

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 00:04:25 UT

YOUNTVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Mention Julia Child and the image that comes to mind is a tall woman with a spoon in one hand, saying in a high voice, "Bon appetit!" That was Child in her heyday as a 1960s TV show host teaching Americans the art of French cooking. But a new photo exhibit at California's Napa Valley Museum Yountville documents her life in France in the years before she hosted one of America's most popular TV cooking shows. Child, a graduate of Smith College, worked during World War II for the agency that was the predecessor of the CIA. In 1946, she married Paul Child, who worked as a cultural attache at the U.S.



Taproom mixes balance of yoga and brewing in classes

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 21:02:15 UT

NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) — Contortionists covered the floor of the Alvarium Beer Co. Sunday morning, as hops and malts did their own balancing act in the brew kettles above. Yoga teacher Kelly Murphy led 22 people through more than an hour of positions inside the taproom/brewery on John Downey Drive. "My intention is to provide an environment people feel comfortable doing yoga in," the Berlin native explained of her studio choice. "You have leisure and fun mixed together here." Serene sounds replaced the loud punk music that usually fills the room. Meanwhile, Head Brewer Chris DeGasero conducted his Sunday morning business as usual.



Restaurant owners finding strong appetites in Detroit

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 14:48:58 UT

DETROIT (AP) — A resurgent downtown Detroit has become something of a magnet for small startup companies, corporate headquarters and even fine cuisine. A Pittsburgh-based company that develops and manages food halls is eyeing the Motor City as one of the newest locations for the trendy food service concept. The Galley Group provides kitchen space for chefs and is scouting spots in the downtown business district and Midtown and Corktown neighborhoods. But it faces competition in satisfying the palates of people choosing from eating options that didn't exist even a decade ago. "Detroit is a city that's on the move right now. It's amazingly undervalued," said Tyler Benson, a Galley Group partner. "There is so much happening there.

California company recalls chicken dish over listeria fears

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 14:50:17 UT

HAYWARD, Calif. (AP) — A California-based Indian food company has recalled pre-packaged chicken tikka masala products over possible listeria contamination. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Tuesday that the recalled dishes by Sukhi's Gourmet Indian Foods have a "use by" date of November 7, 2018. The lot number is 83790. Hayward-based Sukhi's shipped the frozen microwaveable products for distribution in California. Officials say a sample tested positive for listeria on Monday. There have been no reports of any illnesses associated with the items. Listeria is a bacteria that can cause fever and diarrhea, and more dangerous complications in pregnant women.



Organic-food purists assail the designation for hydroponics

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 14:41:24 UT

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Can a tomato grown in a nutrient solution instead of dirt be called "organic"? Some purists don't think so. The National Organic Standards Board, which advises the U.S. Department of Agriculture, voted this month against a proposal to exclude hydroponics and aquaponics — the raising of plants without soil and fish using the same water — from the USDA's organic certification program. Many traditional organic farmers and their supporters say allowing hydroponic farms to be certified organic erodes the integrity of the $16 billion U.S. organic produce industry.

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 13:05:47 UT

SALISBURY, Md. (AP) — A little — or a big — slice of heaven can now be found in downtown Salisbury. The Ugly Pie, known for its homemade pie creations, opened its first storefront Nov. 4. The three owners, Bridget Perry, Heather Hall, and Shaina Bounds, started the business in November 2014 and can now offer customers a permanent place to pick up and enjoy their confections. "I think it was really cool for our regulars," said Bounds. "We have people who buy from us all the time, and for them to come in and be like, 'hey, I don't have to meet you in a parking lot or meet you at a random place anymore,' ...

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — Volunteers from Iowa and Nebraska are rushing to send 30,000 cookies overseas to deployed U.S. service members for the holiday season.

Review: Erdrich tries apocalyptic fiction in 'Future Home'

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 14:47:41 UT

"Future Home of the Living God" (Harper), by Louise Erdrich Evolution runs amok in Louise Erdrich's new novel, "Future Home of the Living God." Ladybugs are the size of cats. Dragonflies have three-foot wingspans. Few women survive childbirth because of a fatal autoimmune response, and because infants are bigger, some are too big for the birth canal. These babies also walk sooner and are thought to be incapable of speech. An authoritarian government recruits patriotic women as "womb volunteers" to harbor embryos frozen before the mysterious calamity. Gourmet food is promised: "Our chefs are waiting for you!" intones Mother, the voice of the new regime.

Fri, 3 Nov 2017 22:14:30 UT

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A television show hosted by celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse is at the center of a brewing court battle pitting the Florida House against the producer behind the cooking show. The Republican-controlled House wants years of records detailing how the show spent millions of dollars paid out by the state's tourism agency and how much was paid directly to Lagasse.

Attorneys for Roberts are asking a judge to block a subpoena issued by the House for the records.

Fri, 3 Nov 2017 19:24:52 UT

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says the number of female hunters is on the rise despite an overall decrease in hunting interest. Nearly 70,000 of Minnesota's 550,000 hunters are women, compared to 55,000 female hunters in 2010, Minnesota Public Radio reported . The department's Becoming An Outdoors Woman program is one of the state's training and research efforts that aims to increase women's interest in hunting. Linda Bylander, who runs the program, said women are becoming more interested in using wild game as part of the local food movement. She also said women are having an easier time getting into hunting as more hunting gear and clothing is being designed for them.
