In Print: Clips from Food Sections

5. – Chicago Tribune Dispelling the Myths about Diabetes and Diets “Diabetics can’t have sugar. Diabetics must buy and eat special foods. These misconceptions linger despite changes in nutrition guidelines. Now some new books are spreading the word.”

4. – Dallas Morning News Putting Energy Drinks to the Test’ “The latest crop of energy drinks aim to do more than just wake you up. Some claim to make sex better, others purport to improve brain function, while still more say they’re good for the environment.”

3. – The Detriot News Hydrox redux: Cookie duels Oreo, again “Hydrox, the defunct chocolate-sandwich wafer, is returning for one more rematch with its nemesis, the Oreo. Bowing to more than 1,300 phone inquiries, an online petition with more than 1,000 signatures and Internet chat sites lamenting the demise of the snack, Battle Creek-based Kellogg Co. has decided to temporarily relaunch Hydrox, the left-for-dead cookie.”

2. – NY TImes Recipe Deal Breakers: When Step 2 is ‘Corral Pig’ “Anything that requires long sessions pounding food in a mortar or forcing something through a sieve stops Fran Gage, the San Francisco pastry chef and author. “Not that I won’t try the recipe,” she said, “but I’ll read it carefully to see if I can use a machine instead.” Others avoid recipes that require wearing rubber gloves, handling something carefully with tongs or removing all jewelry before proceeding.”

1. – Washington Post Shine on, Moonshine “The word “moonshine” conjures bootleggers and fast cars, mobsters and flappers. If Mahalek has his way, drinkers instead will associate it with concepts such as premium, smooth and $14 cocktail. His company, Piedmont Distillers, has launched two brands: Catdaddy is a flavored product redolent of nutmeg and vanilla (though Mahalek denies that either is on the secret list of ingredients); Junior Johnson’s Midnight Moon — named for the bootlegger, granddaddy of NASCAR and Last American Hero — is more traditional, with a brisk, clean flavor. “When you say the word ‘moonshine’ and every head turns, you know you’ve got a powerful story,” Mahalek says. “You’ve got their attention.””
