Change is Bitter Sweet
One of my most favorite food magazines that I subscribe to is Everyday Food. It is a pint size magazine that is packed full with awesome but super simple recipes. I look forward to its arrival every month. Once it arrives I immediately start flipping through the pages to see what they have put together and oh and ah over the delectable pictures. Then when I have more time I carefully read through the whole magazine, cover to cover, noting great tips and flagging every recipe that I want to try. This little Everyday Food magazine has a big impact on my everyday cooking.
It was last week that I saw the sad and bitter sweet news, Martha Stewart Living is making changes and the December issue of Everyday Food will be the last issue of the stand-alone publication. The magazine will now be a five times a year supplement in the Martha Steward Living Magazine.
The Bitter – My favorite pint size magazine will not be coming every month (or 10 months out of the year).
The Sweet – It is not going away! I will still get great recipes and tips from the Everyday Food Team 5 times out of the year.
Myths and ‘The Science of Good Cooking’
We have all heard these cooking myths . . . Using a Marinades Tenderize Meat, Never Bake with Cold Eggs and Wood versus Plastic Cutting Boards.
In the new book by Cook’s Illustrated “The Science of Good Cooking” shares the science behind why their recipes work. In this interview with the NPR Morning Edition Team, Chris Kimball gives us some sneak peeks to answers you can find. I have to say I was surprised by a few.
Winter Park Harvest Festival
Time to get out side and enjoy the local harvest! A Local Folkus is producing it’s 3rd annual Winter Park Harvest Festival, Saturday, November 17 from 10 a.m to 4 p.m.
The event is focusing on 6 themes – Local, Grow, Learn, Taste, Listen and Play.
This will be my first time at the Festival and I am looking forward to the bounty of local eats that the farmers’ market will have available and learning more about the Central Florida local food system. Getting connected with the food from my community is a great way to spend the Saturday!
