Daphne Oz's cookbook aims for weekend cooking on weekdays

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 19:40:30 UT

Daphne Oz seeks to close the gap in her new book, "The Happy Cook," with 125 recipes that she says are practical enough for Monday through Friday while still tasty and adaptable enough to satisfy a variety of eaters and food concerns. For TV's "The Chew" co-host, cooking at its best is an act of love and personal fulfillment, something she learned from her mother and grandmother. In an interview, Oz discussed the logistics of making enticing, healthy food while juggling home and work demands, and why she believes counting calories isn't the way to go. How can parents manage weekday cooking, which might include catering to child and adult tastes, without running screaming from the kitchen? I tried to pay close attention to the reality that no one wants to go out and shop 20 ingredients for every meal they're gonna make. (As a college student trying to lose weight) I tried every diet under the sun and none of them worked but, more importantly, they were robbing me of my love of food. ... Once I got to a healthy place where I could know what would make me feel great and let me indulge when I needed to, I never wanted to go back to a place where I was exclusively thinking about a numbers game. ...

Winning in the kitchen: Curry cooks up career with new book

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 22:03:26 UT

NEW YORK (AP) — Ayesha Curry remembers the first meal she cooked for her ultra-popular NBA player-husband Stephen Curry: a baked chicken dish. Ayesha said the Golden State Warriors point guard loved the first meal she made, which included "his dad's famous seasoning." "No discredit to the people that do — I'm always watching and looking on social media at the stuff that they make — but at home I think I'm so prideful with my food and so I make everything," she said. For the book, she also worked independently: "I food styled and cooked all the food for the photos myself, so it was just the photographer and I." Some of the standouts in her book include her Mama Alexander's brown sugar chicken, Stephen's five-ingredient pasta (for game days) and her honey-peppered cast-iron biscuits. Riley's become a social media star, garnering attention at her father's basketball games, press conferences and more. Her angry Twitter rant earlier this year following a Warriors loss during the finals made her a target (she later apologized).



Night shift workers toil while the world sleeps

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 16:03:51 UT

Beneath portable work lights, the deafening chorus of gas-power demolition saws slicing cement splits the air. Project superintendent Tom Tasco, a towering man with a kind smile, a scruffy white beard and 35 years as a bridge worker under his belt, eyes the highway, carefully watching cars merge into one lane as they approach his work site. [...] shift. All of Allied's nurse and nurse aide departments and also Allied Terrace personal care home require round-the-clock staffing. Some of Allied's intellectual development programs also require a 24-hour staff, as well as its maintenance department. Allied has creative ways to entice workers to take those less-than-desirable shifts — programs like 12-hour shifts so some staff can work only three days a week. Often, workers take the night shift for personal reasons, then find that the schedule grows on them and stick with it even after they finish school or their kids are out of the house, Oprisko said. By habit, when one worker hunched over a saw works his way toward the cone barrier, another worker stood in front of him to watch the road. Nyleve is obligated contractually with the state Department of Transportation to work between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. because they have to reduce traffic to one lane to replace the expansion dams on Route 309. A buzzer rings, calling her to the great oven where racks of bread loaves turn slowly behind a heavy glass window.

Big Food's biggest trend? Crusading against Big Food

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 22:18:59 UT

(AP) — Gathered for a free music festival, a crowd waits to see one of the headline attractions — an exhibit about fast-food ingredients. Chipotle's "Cultivate" festivals encapsulate the food industry's hottest marketing trend: crusading against Big Food. While the burrito maker still struggles to recover from an E. coli outbreak last year, its previous success in presenting itself as a reformer has led companies big and small to follow suit as they seek part of the $256 billion that Americans spend on fast-food each year. [...] some are positioning themselves as advocates for change before accomplishing some health goals, and skeptics say even well-intentioned marketing can be a disingenuous way to help people rationalize overeating. In issuing its challenge to improve kids' meals, Panera also decried marketing gimmicks, then launched digital ads featuring children's voices trying to explain items like "sodium benzoate." Local, which touts its "revolutionary fast food" in two low-income California locations, says "giant corporations that feed most of America have degraded our communities by maximizing profit." Musk, the brother of tech mogul Elon Musk, already has several sit-down restaurants and blames processed foods low in nutrients for leaving people "fat and starving." The company also sees it as an opportunity to boost sales by offering the dietitians tips for incorporating its bars into people's diets. [...] while its touting of quality ingredients and ethical sourcing practices may have helped sales, that positioning may also partly explain its lagging sales since an E. coli outbreak last year:



Business Highlights

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 21:40:30 UT

NEW YORK (AP) — The sugar industry began funding research that cast doubt on sugar's role in heart disease — in part by pointing the finger at fat — as early as the 1960s, according to an analysis of newly uncovered documents. The analysis published Monday is based on correspondence between a sugar trade group and researchers at Harvard University, and is the latest example showing how food and beverage makers attempt to shape public understanding of nutrition. In 1964, the group now known as the Sugar Association internally discussed a campaign to address "negative attitudes toward sugar" after studies began emerging linking sugar with heart disease, according to documents dug up from public archives. The following year the group approved "Project 226," which entailed paying Harvard researchers today's equivalent of $48,900 for an article reviewing the scientific literature, supplying materials they wanted reviewed, and receiving drafts of the article. The resulting article published in 1967 concluded there was "no doubt" that reducing cholesterol and saturated fat was the only dietary intervention needed to prevent heart disease.

Is 'cauliflower rice' going mainstream? Green Giant hopes so

Tue, 6 Sep 2016 16:30:37 UT

[...] struggling vegetable maker Green Giant is hoping the "cauliflower rice" trend — which has led to some Trader Joe's quickly selling out of bags of its house version in some areas — will go mainstream and help it reverse years of declining sales. Producer Taylor Farms notes overall cauliflower sales in the U.S. rose 13 percent last year, and that people are using chopped cauliflower as a replacement in recipes for rice, mashed potatoes and pizza crusts. [...] more grown-ups are using swaps, like replacing pasta with shredded zucchini, to cut the carbs in starchy dishes. Jordan Greenberg, vice president of marketing at Green Giant owner B&G Foods Inc., thinks vegetable swaps are more than a fad, and that a "fundamental shift" is underway in how people look at their plates. Since 2011, Green Giant's frozen vegetables sales in the U.S. have declined 25 percent to $477.6 million, according to Euromonitor.
