'Treme' Cookbook Captures The Flavor Of A Show And A City : The Salt : NPR



"Inspired by David Simon's award-winning HBO series Treme, this celebration of the culinary spirit of post-Katrina New Orleans features recipes and tributes from the characters, real and fictional, who highlight the Crescent City's rich foodways. From chef Janette Desautel's own Crawfish Ravioli and LaDonna Batiste-Williams's Smothered Turnip Soup to the city's finest Sazerac, New Orleans' cuisine is a mélange of influences from Creole to Vietnamese, at once new and old, genteel and down-home, and, in the words of Toni Bernette, "seasoned with delicious nostalgia." As visually rich as the series itself, the book includes 100 heritage and contemporary recipes from the city's heralded restaurants such as Upperline, Bayona, Restaurant August, and Herbsaint, plus original recipes from renowned chefs Eric Ripert, David Chang, and other Treme guest stars. For the 6 million who come to New Orleans each year for its food and music, this is the ultimate homage to the traditions that make it one of the world's greatest cities."

Faux pas! Food fraud on the rise – Eatocracy - CNN.com Blogs

Even if you are an avid product label reader, as I am, if a manufacturer commits outright fraud in its production, you may not know it. Stick to reputable producers and sellers.

"Food fraud, as defined by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is the adulteration, dilution or mislabeling of goods. USP further defines food fraud in the study as 'the fraudulent addition of nonauthentic substances or removal or replacement of authentic substances without the purchaser's knowledge for economic gain to the seller.'"

WHFoods: The Latest News About Shrimp


Is shrimp a food that should be avoided for any number of reasons: environmental factors, cholesterol content, etc.? Or should you include it in your diet?



"Please note that we have placed shrimp on our "10 Most Controversial WHFoods List." This list was created to let you know that even though some foods (like shrimp) can make an outstanding contribution to your meal plan, they are definitely not for everyone.
