Pope to first lady: what are you feeding Trump?

Wed, 24 May 2017 17:36:58 UT

Potica is a typical highly nutritious Slovenian festive strudel with nuts, poppy seeds, cottage cheese, chocolate, tarragon, leek or honey fillings. The last time she is believed to have visited her native country was in July 2002, when she introduced Donald Trump to her parents at the lakeside Grand Hotel Toplice in the resort town of Bled over a meal. Ingredients: 1 1/2 teaspoons of active dry yeast, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup milk lukewarm, 1 cup butter, softened 6 egg yolks, 1 1/3 cups milk, 5 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 cup melted butter, 1 cup honey, 1 1/2 cups raisins, 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts, 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour. Spread each piece with melted butter, honey, raisins, walnuts and cinnamon.



Lawsuit: Fyre music fest more 'Hunger Games' than Coachella

Tue, 23 May 2017 01:04:23 UT

"The festival's lack of adequate food, water, shelter, and medical care created a dangerous and panicked situation among attendees — suddenly finding themselves stranded on a remote island without basic provisions — that was closer to 'The Hunger Games' or 'Lord of the Flies' than Coachella," according to the suit filed by attorney Mark Geragos. In the amended complaint filed in U.S. District Court, Geragos said 300 people had contacted his offices after the initial suit was filed last month against organizers Billy McFarland, rapper Ja Rule, whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins, and Fyre Media Inc. Among dozens of unnamed defendants are deep-pocketed investors who provided seed money for the event. The event promoted on social media by Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski and other models and celebrities targeted well-heeled Millennials with ticket packages ranging from $1,200 to over $100,000 and promising five-star dining and luxury accommodations.

Shepherdstown food writer pens healthy eating cookbook

Sat, 20 May 2017 16:27:22 UT

Plant-based dishes tend to get relegated to the side of the plate, after the meat, after the potatoes and sometimes after the bread. Online "YumUniverse" creator, kitchen explorer and cookbook author Heather Crosby said that when she was a kid, she didn't eat her vegetables, calling herself a complete "veggie-phobe." Crosby has a new cookbook out, "YumUniverse Pantry to Plate," which she hopes will make it easier for others to get over their fears of the things in the crisper drawer, too. The author's vegetable patch journey began on her grandparents' horse farm in Maryland, where she grew up. After a slew of uncomfortable tests, doctors told her she'd have to take medicine for the rest of her life. Through an online forum, she read comments from people describing symptoms which sounded very familiar to her own. Crosby and "YumUniverse" have been featured, profiled and mentioned in several magazines, websites and media outlets, including Cosmopolitan, Reader's Digest, The Chicago Sun-Times, HGTV and NPR. The website led to her first cookbook in 2014, "YumUniverse," which included a collection of recipes as well as a kitchen guide with suggestions for tools to acquire and ingredients to keep on hand, plus ideas on how to add vegetables into one's diet. "YumUniverse Pantry to Plate" further explores that idea with more recipes for healthy meals and snacks. Unlike some plant-based cook books, which can be loaded with unfamiliar or uncommon ingredients, "YumUniverse Pantry to Plate" offers options for using just what you have. Not every local grocery store stocks items like almond butter (similar to peanut butter), quinoa (a grain) or Sucanat (a sweetener). If you're still having trouble finding ingredients (and it might be more challenging in some areas, particularly with the gluten-free flours), Crosby suggested ordering online. "Pantry to Plate" will take Crosby on the road off and on over the next few mon



Family's dairy farm thrives in Iowa

Sat, 20 May 2017 14:45:15 UT

[...] Hansen's Farm Fresh Dairy proves the area's long-held family farms can thrive through ambition, innovation and hard work. Hansen's Farm Fresh Dairy has grown considerably in 13 years and now sells products at eastern Iowa grocery stores, co-ops, farmers markets and other locations. The dairy also sells milk, butter, cheese and ice cream and products of local entrepreneurs at its two retail outlets in Waterloo and Cedar Falls. According to the dairy's archives, his two-times maternal great-grandfather, Christian Frederick Brandhorst, purchased the land southwest of Hudson in May 1864. For decades, the farm produced a variety of crops and animals, which helped the operation achieve self-sufficiency. Today, the original Christian Brandhorst's original plot of 150 acres has been expanded to 440 mostly contiguous acres, the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier (http://bit.ly/2pS4TNr ) reported. After opening in 2004, Hansen's Farm Fresh Dairy sold whole milk at a few smaller Cedar Valley locations like Randall's Grocery, as well as farmers markets, recalled Jay. Increased demand and the rapidly expanding product line positioned the dairy to open a retail outlet, Jordan added. The family's commitment to maintaining a closed herd limits the dairy's ability to grow at the rate of a large-scale production. At this time, 150 cows supplies the dairy's retail and wholesale customers. Visitors can schedule tours and experiential learning opportunities.



Georgia schools await details on healthy meal standards

Sat, 20 May 2017 14:34:34 UT

ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia schools are continuing efforts to win over picky eaters, using taste tests, chef visits and school gardens to encourage kids to pick up healthier items even as the state's former governor hit the pause button on some stricter nutrition standards for school meals as a top member of the Trump administration. Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue announced this month that the agency will delay planned sodium limits and allow schools to scale back on whole-grain requirements and to reintroduce 1 percent milk instead of just nonfat. The School Nutrition Association, which represents nutrition directors and companies that sell food to schools, applauded the move for giving schools "practical flexibility." In Georgia's Fulton County, that process starts with dozens of hungry fourth graders sampling potential menu items including baked chicken on top of a whole grain waffle and a "superfood" salad including kale, broccoli and dried cranberries mixed with deep-red vinaigrette. School nutrition organizations and vendors have long argued the regulations had unintended consequences: lowering the number of students who participate in school lunches, raising costs and increasing waste. Nutrition directors surveyed by the Pew Charitable Trusts' Kids' Safe and Healthful Food Projects last year reported better participation rates in districts that gave more food choices, added salad bars and prepared items from scratch rather than buying prepackaged from a vendor.

Oregon organic farm submits weed control plan ahead of court

Fri, 19 May 2017 04:53:35 UT

Azure's plan includes looking at heavy fertilization and deep cultivation methods, spot use of Born, citrus pulp mulch, covering weeds with landscaping fabric, salt, mowing before seeds form and spraying calcium, manganese and Born before cultivation to control weeds. The weeds coming from the 2,000-acre (8.1-sq. kilometer) organic operation in Moro put surrounding wheat farms at risks, the Oregon Wheat Growers League has said. From our members on the ground, it's become clear that even a casual observation of Azure's property makes it clear that their noxious weed problem is severe and has been worsening for many years, said CEO Blake Rowe and growers Bryan Cranston and Chris Moore in a prepared statement.



'Natural Foods Cookbook' author Beatrice Trum Hunter dies

Thu, 18 May 2017 16:05:25 UT

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Beatrice Trum Hunter, who wrote "The Natural Foods Cookbook" in 1961, long before organic foods became a staple at supermarkets, and who took an early stance against pesticide exposure, sharing information with "Silent Spring" author Rachel Carson, has died. Trum Hunter "was writing and educating Americans about whole, organic foods decades before the farm-to-table movement took the country by storm," said Vita Paladino, director of the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University, which has a collection of her personal and professional papers. When "The Natural Foods Cookbook" came out, Trum Hunter said she attracted some criticism from some dietitians and nutritionists because she wasn't using processed foods. "Beatrice blew my mind and my sense of possibility wide open," Frances Moore Lappe, author of "Diet for a Small Planet," told The Associated Press in 2002. Trum Hunter also was contacted by Carson before the publication of "Silent Spring" in 1962, about the potential harm of chemical pesticides to the environment. Some of her other works include "Gardening Without Poisons," ''The Great Nutrition Robbery," ''Our Toxic Legacy," and "The Sugar Trap and How to Avoid It."

Religious beliefs involved in Oregon pesticide dispute

Tue, 16 May 2017 21:47:08 UT

(AP) — Religious beliefs involving the use of pesticides are part of a dispute over noxious weeds on a 2,000-acre organic farm in Oregon that has attracted the attention of organic food supporters. The farm, which is operated by a major supplier of organic products called Azure Standard, would lose its organic certification if herbicides are applied, the Capital Press reported Tuesday (http://bit.ly/2qoRsaX ). A video posted on the farm's website has resulted in hundreds of phone calls and thousands of e-mails to county officials from supporters of the farm. The Oregon Wheat Commission and several growers are hoping to draw support from the Oregon Department of Agriculture, while a group that certifies organic operations is asking the county to give the farm more time before enforcing its weed control plan.
