In Print: Clips from Food Sections

5. – The Chicago Tribune Beefing Up Milk “Those who’ve grown up on skim milk varieties may cringe at the richness of whole milk. But other skim milk drinkers secretly long for a creamier drink. At least that’s the theory behind a growing niche of the market aimed at providing a thicker skim milk experience.”

4. – The Boston Globe Spoonfuls of Yum “Good chicken broth is the essence of great soup, and most chefs insist on making their own. If they’ve been boning chickens for another dish, there are plenty of meaty bones on hand. Chefs tend to scorn the idea of making soup using commercial broth (though some allow that home cooks shouldn’t shy away from buying broth if they don’t have time to make their own). When it comes to making chicken soup, everyone has opinions – usually very, very strong ones.”

3. – The LA Times Her phyllo rolls were Elektra-fying “Nina Lamb may be partially responsible for some of the greatest rock music ever recorded. Her contribution? Cheese-and-spinach phyllo rolls.”

2. – The NY Times Snack Time Never Ends “The obligations to bring a little something to eat extend to the adult world, too — I’ve baked for PTA meetings and child-rearing seminars that I didn’t even attend. But when it comes to American boys and girls, snacks seem both mandatory and constant. Apparently, we have collectively decided as a culture that it is impossible for children to take part in any activity without simultaneously shoving something into their pie holes.”

1. – The Washington Post DIY Coffee “Why on earth would you roast your own coffee, you say? For the same reason you’d make your own pasta or ice cream, brew your own beer, make your own vinegar or tonic water, or in fact create any edible or potable product from as close to scratch as possible, I say. Maybe you think you can do better than the pros. Maybe it’s cheaper, not as hard as you might think, or somehow therapeutic. Or maybe you just think it would be a hoot to try.”
