Prelude: All about Flour

quote [ Flour Treatise - Non frames ]

Exact US equivalents for European flours do not exist. Different categories are used in each country as universally accepted nomenclature does not exist in this field. A clear and concise description of the differences in flour in France and the US can be found in a text authored by Bilheux, Escoffier, Herve, and Pouradier (2). The discussion lends itself as much to the description of the characteristics of Italian flour as to French.

Everyone is loving the new plant-based Beyond Meat burger at A&W, except vegans

quote [ On July 9, A&W launched the country?s first-ever fully plant-based burger patty, the Beyond Meat Burger, at all of their locations Canada-wide.

People who hadn?t eaten fast food in years dropped everything to run to their nearest A&W to get the alternative burger, and there have been plenty of rave reviews in its first two days.

But while the overall reception has been positive, there?s a vocal community of dissenters to the Beyond Meat Burger at A&W Canada, and it might be taking a bite out of their target market: Vegans. ]

A&W is great. They'll replace the bun on any of their burgers with a lettuce wrap, and if you hold the sauce it's just a bag of real food: meat, cheese and veggies.

quote [ The United States has amassed its largest stockpile of cheese in the 100 years since regulators began keeping tabs, the result of booming domestic production of milk and consumers' waning interest in the dairy beverage. The 1.39 billion-pound stockpile, tallied by the Agriculture Department last week, represents a 6 percent increase over this time last year and a 16 percent increase since an earlier surplus prompted a federal cheese buy-up in 2016. Dairy groups aren't yet asking USDA to buy the surplus, however ? a common practice that the American Farm Bureau Federation calls "quantitative cheesing." ]

$37.99 Hot Dog Water ?Foodie Trolling? has Tongues Wagging

quote [ If you?re at a street festival on a sunny June day, it?s not unlikely you?ll run into a hot dog vendor and a water vendor. But how about a ?Hot Dog Water? vendor, selling bottles of the bizarre product for $37.99 a pop? ]

"Food & Drink" sounds appropriate for Hot Dog Water

The Tragic Roots of America's Favorite Cherry

quote [ The Chinese Exclusion Act likely exiled the man who first cultivated it. ]

I found this pretty cool. I thought it was someone like Bing Crosby who named it. I like the big, dark cherries when they're nice and cold but bings are pretty good too.
