WHOLE FOODS announced that by 2018 they will label all their Genetically Modified Foods. Wow! Are unions next? Not a single Whole Foods store is unionized. Could GMOs be a distraction? Is food a context for enfranchisement or is enfranchisement a context for food?
LILLIAN CAHN died at age 89. Inventor of Coach bags, co-founder of the wonderful Coach Farm cheese company, mother-in-law of Mario Batali. A pioneer in more ways than one.
BACON: Father’s from Kentucky still outperforming all the others. Today’s snowy choice was their Vanilla Bourbon. Four slices and I won’t eat until late this afternoon. Sweet, salty, crispy, redolent.
BACK OF THE HOUSE: Amazon is emailing its cookbook buyers and pushing the book as its #1 choice.
DINING OUT: Good, little meatballs followed by tagliatelle @ Club Bar @ Upstairs last night. Simple, delicious, and savory.
UP AHEAD: Roasted branzini, fennel, white beans, and white wine.
