In Print: Clips from Food Sections

5. – The Boston Globe Any way you Slice it, NY Bagel Business is Going Strong “Various phases of the no-carb, low-carb diet have disrupted the bagel business here, but bagel makers bounce back and so do bagel buyers. There’s that moment, dashing to work, when a bagel will offer just the right amount of nourishment before a morning meeting. And then there are Sundays, when delicatessens offering bagels are filled with customers. Today’s bagel eater has more choices than ever. There are low-carb bagels, whole wheat bagels, and the relatively recent “scooped” bagel, in which the insides are tossed out so only the crusty exterior remains.”

4. – The Chicago Tribune How to Know when a Watermelon is Ripe “The hard rind of a watermelon can be up to an inch thick and doesn’t soften as it ripens. It’s green when ripe, green when unripe. So, how to select a watermelon wisely? And how to use it wisely?”

3. – The NY Times Los Angeles Stages a Fast Food Intervention “A new weapon in the battle against obesity was rolled out last month when the Los Angeles City Council decided to stop new fast food restaurants from opening in some of the city’s poorest neighborhoods… The Sisyphean struggle against poor diets has included booting soda from schools, banning trans fat and, more recently, sending New Yorkers into dietary sticker shock with a law that requires calorie counts be posted on menus, right next to the prices.”

2. – The Philadelphia Inquirer Preppy Pops: They’re liquor on a stick “These are pops with – pop. They’re peppy frozen cocktails on a stick, kicky and not for kids.”

1. – The Washington Post Unveiling the Top Tomatoes “In fact, the readers who submitted the first-, second- and third-place entries in the Food section’s second annual Top Tomato recipe contest have something in common: They made the most of what was available.”
