Tue, 09 Oct 2007 15:36:51 ESTDear Nibble Reader: We're excited to announce that we've converted our Gourmet News And Views from a weekly feed to a daily feed (blog format), which you'll note when you read today's news. However, we need you to take a moment of your time to enroll in the new feed. Just go to http://blog.thenibble.com/category/gourmet%20news/feed to subscribe. Now, you'll get more timely news, a nibble at a time, instead of waiting for one long feed to arrive each Monday. We've also added several new feeds that may be of interest to you. Cordially, THE NIBBLE Editors P.S. We're still tweaking the RSS sign-up on TheNibble.com website, so for now, you need to sign up on the blog itself, http://blog.thenibble.com/category/gourmet%20news/feed Topics this week: CONTEST -- Win Some Great Cooking. One Grand Prize winner will attend the 2008 Taste Of EBONY, a culinary extravaganza. ...TREND -- Organic Growth. Last week we attended the Natural Products Expo East (ExpoEast.com), the largest natural and organic products trade show and conference on the east coast (its sister show, Expo West in Anaheim, is even larger). ...GOURMET TRAVEL -- Great American Beer Festival. The doors open on Thursday, October 11, 5:30 p.m., and until Saturday at 10 p.m. (not nonstop, of course); attendees at the 2007 Great American Beer Festival will have 1,884 beers available to sample. ...NEWS -- High Prices Brewing For Craft Beer. What revelers at next week's Great American Beer Festival won't be discussing is the higher prices forthcoming on their brews of choice. ...PRODUCT WATCH -- Shake It, Shake It Baby. Just in time for Halloween, McCormick's has introduced black food coloring. ...Guard Those Bananas. Love to bring a banana for a workday snack (or send the kids to school with one), but hate to find it brown and beaten up when you remove it from your bag?
