Food In The News: Weekly Roundup

French fries ain’t no fast food – Fried potatoes have become a sort of social class equalizer.

It’s true, when I was in Amsterdam, they served fries everywhere I went.

Grass-fed beef consumption on the rise – Bill Kurtis? Are you reading this? Chefs and consumers are demanding their beef be grass-fed! Looks like you have something going, my friend! (Re: Bill Kurtis ranch of grass fed beef. To read interview, click here.)

Bread can be good for you, if you let it – Some say packing in the carbs by eating bread is not healthy for us, but if you use the right grains and follow these three different ways of making it, it doesn’t have to be unhealthy!

Everyone’s popping the Italian bubbly – Prosecco, an Italian sparkling wine, has gained popularity and is now a highly sought after beverage.

And that’s all for this week!

I’ve decided to put together a weekly roundup of food in the news. Instead of sporadic tidbits of newsworthy culinary information, I thought this might be the most informative and efficient means of passing it along. The roundup will be posted every Friday so tune in to get your weekly summary!

And if you have any feedback or newsworthy food information, feel free to share in the comments or e-mail it to us for next week’s round up at chewonthatblog [at] gmail [dot] com .
