Food In The News: Weekly Roundup

Sorry about the late roundup – here is last week’s news!

Serotonin-producing Saffron – The yellow spice has been found to help ease the symptoms of PMS.

Posing as salmon – First it was veggie burgers, next it was tofu dogs…and now this???

Aged…beer? – We know wine likes to age, but these days wooden barrels are being used to harness and protect the hops, instead of the grapes.

Dining with food allergies – Restaurants have been catering to the growing population of Americans with food allergies.

How about some tea in that…soup? – Chefs suggest substituting tea for water in your cooking to twist things up and add some nice flavor. So wherever there is water, there might as well be tea.

    cool about the saffron. I always love reading about nature’s healing agents. I think it’s the way to go.
