Food links: $7000 tip, BPAs are back, and White House garden is a hit

7 Nov

I read so many interesting food-related articles on a daily basis! I figured that it’s time I share with them y’all. Enjoy!

*$47,221: What’s the most you’ve ever spent on a meal? $200? $500? $1,000? Now, multiply that number to fit someone’s annual salary, let’s say, $47,221. If you’re Russian billionaire, Roman Abramovich, this is what you paid, after having lunch for 6 people! [Buzzfeed]

*Cake and Sandra Lee: Whether you love her or hate her, Cheap Healthy Good brings us this hilarious review of Sandra Lee’s Money Saving Meals. My favorite part: when Sandra Lee makes a cake with cake while hitting on Mario Lopez repeatedly. Go over there and see the clip! [Cheap Healthy Good]

*Kids compost: Kids in Chicago schools are learning to compost their lunches. What a great way to teach kids about waste! [Chicago Tribune]

*Store cheese the right way: Great tips on how to store cheese after you get home. How I love thee, delicious, stinky cheese! [The Kitchn]

*BPAs in cans:This study by Consumer Reports shows that ” Bisphenol A can be found in canned soups, juice and more.” Remember how we got rid of Nalgene bottles not too long ago for the same reason? Perhaps, another good reason to stick to fresh foods. [Civil Eats, via Bittman]

*White House garden: This week’s episode of The Biggest Loser was filmed at the White House garden. They ate a salad together, then Bob Harper went on and on about how it only cost $12 to grow everything. My question is, what else did they eat after that small plate of salad they called “dinner”? :) Also, Iron Chef America filmed an episode there with Bobby Flay, Mario Batali, Emeril Lagasse; episode will air in January.[NBC, and New York Times]

Enormous Bibimbap

14 Oct

According to the article, this happened at the second annual event that called “Day of International Koreans” on the 4th of October. Over 400 Koreans from other parts of the world, along with foreigners living in Korea, attended this event. This is a picture of cooks mixing up the veggies.
The google translator caption says “I’ve got to rub it evenly.”

Now, how many eggs do we need for bibimbap this big?

Thanks to Adam @ Serious Eats for the tip.

Just read this very interesting New York Times article about nutraceuticals.


“These additives are often called nutraceuticals, broadly defined as ingredients that are derived from food, and that offer health benefits associated with that food.”
