Judge sides with Florida House instead of Emeril TV producer

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 01:27:54 UT

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A federal judge is refusing to step into an ongoing tussle between a television producer for one of chef Emeril Lagasse's cooking shows and the Florida House of Representatives. U.S. District Judge Mark Walker on Friday refused to grant an injunction against the Republican-controlled House that had been sought by producer Pat Roberts and his company. The House last week gave Roberts five days to turn over records detailing how the show "Emeril's Florida" spent millions it received from the state's tourism agency. If Roberts and his company MAT Media refused to comply with the subpoena, he could be fined or jailed.

Cookbook shows funeral food is a tradition that won't die

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 16:54:54 UT

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Perre Coleman Magness' latest cookbook came to be in sort of a funny way, particularly for a book about feeding the bereaved. "The publisher asked me if I would be interested in doing a book on funeral food because it is a 'trending topic,'" she said. "I said that I could do one on Southern food, but not one for Lutherans in Minnesota or Italians from Brooklyn." While she mulled it over, she called her mother, also a writer and also named Perre Magness. "The first thing I did was call my mother, as you do, and when I told her what was going on, she said, 'Oh, you need my obituary file,' " she said.



Former Hopewell mayor opens chocolate manufacturing facility

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 14:00:00 UT

CHESTERFIELD, Va. (AP) — The former mayor of Hopewell, Steve Taylor, and his wife Kim recently opened a chocolate wholesale manufacturing and retail facility, Taylor Made Chocolate, in Chesterfield County. The bean-to-bar artisan chocolate making process that unfolds in the back of the Taylor Made Chocolate store begins with cocoa beans that are imported from Haiti. Taylor and his employees sort through the beans, taking out the ones that will take away from the flavor of the chocolate, and then the best beans are roasted and winnowed in the facility. The beans are then taken through the final mixing and cooling stages before being packaged and sold on the shelves at the front of the store.

Stir up a Victorian Christmas Pudding, Pittsburgh style

Wed, 3 Jan 2018 23:39:28 UT

PITTSBURGH (AP) — One of the traditional highlights of an English Christmas is the plum pudding served at the end of the meal - dense, rich, and dripping with rum butter or other boozey glaze. It used to be a standard in Pittsburgh as well, if the recipes in the old cookbooks in the Heinz History Center archives are any indication, and it merits a return. But first, some clarification. Jell-O brand forever altered Americans' sense of what is "pudding." The gloopy stuff we tend to think of would traditionally have been considered a custard. "Pudding" before the the advent of add-milk-and-stir was a combination of fruits, sugar, eggs, fat and spice with just enough bread or flour to hold it all together.

Guy Fieri's Times Square restaurant closes for good

Tue, 2 Jan 2018 11:04:25 UT

NEW YORK (AP) — A restaurant run by television star and celebrity chef Guy Fieri in the heart of New York City's Times Square has shut its doors for good. The restaurant, Guy's American Kitchen & Bar, served its last public meal Saturday. Restaurant officials held a private dinner event on New Year's Eve for its last night of operation. The restaurant opened in 2012, where it was greeted with a no-star review from The New York Times' restaurant critic. Fieri said in a statement that he was proud of the restaurant serving millions of patrons for over five years, and did not give a reason for its closure. The restaurant was part of the Blue Stein Group, a New York collection of restaurants that includes the Heartland Brewery chain.
