  • Thieves Steal $43,000 Worth of Comté Cheese from French Dairy

    Thieves Steal $43,000 Worth of Comté Cheese from French Dairy

    3 years ago - By Eater

    Authorities are mystified by the crime. Earlier this week, thieves in France made off with four tonnes or just over 8,818 pounds of Comté cheese. L'Est Republican reports the theft took place in Goux-les-Usiers, a region in Doubs in Eastern France where Comté, a hard, aged cheese is produced. The cheese sells for about 40 Euros or $43 USD per pound. But the police are stumped: How will the thieves sell this cheese — which is worth more than $43,000 USD — on the black market?
    The Telegraph reports that the amount of cheese stolen mean it's likely to reach restaurants in other markets...

    Favorite dishes 11/06/2015

    Last week ended with an eating binge in Las Vegas. I returned late Thursday night but the next day I was back full force on my San Francisco beat.
    I checked out the Cadillac Bar & Grill at both lunch and dinner, and found it surprisingly satisfying. I also made a final visit to Oro , the subject of my review next week in the Chronicle, and then revisited Rintaro and enjoyed many of the dishes, but was most intrigued by the pork katsu that was stuffed with Cowgirl cheese.
    In Berkeley I went to Cesar, which is next door to Chez Panisse, and the food was so...

    If you can't take the heat, stay out of Tia Mowry's kitchen. In the Tia Mowry at Home Season 2 premiere, she and her husband, Cory, battled it out in a fun cook-off. Each of them made a shrimp-centric entree and a totally bananas dessert — yes they included bananas — in a friendly competition to settle once and for all who is the master of their kitchen. The stakes were high, with the loser doing dishes for a whole week, and you may be surprised by who reigned supreme.

  • At What Temperature Is Chicken Cooked'

    At What Temperature Is Chicken Cooked'

    3 years ago - By PopSugar

    While seasoned cooks may be able to tell if chicken is fully cooked by paying attention to visual cues - the flesh should be firm, and the juices should run clear when pierced - it's never a bad idea to take the temperature of your bird with an instant-read thermometer . The question then is, what temperature should the chicken be cooked to?
    The answer is a bit less straightforward than you might expect: according to Foodsafety.gov, chicken should be cooked to a minimum temperature of 165 F . That said, this is not the definitive answer; many other reputable sources recommend cooking...

    We've all been there: You go on a rad vacation to a far-flung country or take a road trip around the Deep South.

Except, that food ends up sitting in the back of your cupboard or taking up room in your fridge door, unused and untouched for months or years. Welcome to the Condiment Graveyard , where foods we endowed with high hopes and big dreams go to die, because we've never used them (and probably never will).

    This Wine Advent Calendar Is The Best Gift You Could Give Yourself

    3 years ago - By PopSugar

    When my co-worker shared this idea for a wine advent calendar , I knew I had to re-create it with my own spin. The idea is simple: countdown to Christmas by opening a bottle each night. I included ornaments with numbers that you can hang on your Christmas tree if you so desire (PS - it's totally legit to save them for future seasons too). Even though a traditional advent calendar is only 24 days, I included a special bottle of Champagne for Christmas Day with a bright Santa ornament.

    What Happens When You Store Whiskey In A Decanter

    3 years ago - By Vine Pair

    You know the scene: an important-seeming dude in a suit, or Jack Donaghy , pours himself a glass of whiskey from a crystal decanter, possibly staring out the window while contemplating a recent building-swap, or whatever business people do. Sure, he might not have made the right choices on the Nikkei that day. But what about that decanter? Is it actually a good choice for whiskey?
    Yes and no. Or more like no, and yes. Like a tattoo nobody can see, it's a choice you don't have to make, but it also can't do a ton of harm. Especially if you plan on drinking that whiskey anytime soon...

    Other winemakers respect him. Wine drinkers of all levels know his brands. Journalists love him. But winemaker Randall Grahm of Bonny Doon Vineyard doesn't need any of it.
    After more than 40 years in the industry, Graham has maintained his reputation for breaking the mold. He talks like a philosopher with the soul of a scientist, but it's just as likely that we've got the two mixed up. He's chased the perfect Pinot Noir , held the 27th largest wine company in the U.S. (which is a really big deal), and advocated for the use of Rhône varietal grapes in California...
