Wonderful San Francisco!

 I just spent 5 wonderful days in one of my favourite American cities, San Francisco.  I love the weather, the people and the vibe in San Fran.  Crickey, can you eat well in this city.  And it doesn't have to break the bank.
North Beach is my neighbourhood of choice to hang out in and every day starts with a latte at Cafe Trieste.  Ahhhh.  To view my comments and photos see http://www.flickr.com/photos/cookindana/.

Why Butter is Better!

My mom knew this way back.  I remember dieting in my teens and asking her to buy low-cal margarine and having her look at me like I had two heads.  "Why in the world would you want to eat that?!"

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution

He does it again!  The admiration and respect I have for this man just continues to grow exponentially!

This campaign is long overdue and not just for the US, but here in Canada, as well.  Two-thirds of American adults are overweight and more than 27% are obese.  The food they eat contains no nutrients and lots of fats, salt and sugar.

Words of Food Wisdom

This piece by Russ Parsons of the LA Times is a great reminder that polarizing and demonizing are NOT ways to facilitate change.  Food is a universal issue that needs to be approached with dialouge, cooperation and common sense.

Food Inc.

I am already very aware of the state of food in our economy and culture.  I am member of Slow Food and the 100 Mile Diet Society.  I have worked in the Food and Beverage industry for my entire working life.  And yet, it still frightens me to watch a doc like Food Inc.  There is still so much more to do and bring to the forefront of political agendas.  

It is a great reminder to come back to the simple question of "Where does my food REALLY come from?"  Do you know?  Please, find out.
