We were relieved and impressed by how quickly restaurant operators
yanked raw tomatoes off their menus before news of the tomato-related
salmonella outbreak broke in the national media. But while the
restaurant end of the food safety chain got up to speed in a hurry,
questions are beginning to arise about the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration’s performance. The agency has put out plenty of
warnings and information about which types of tomatoes and which
tomato-growing areas are safe. But it hasn’t been able to pinpoint
where the salmonella-tainted tomatoes are coming from. That’s what
restaurant operators and their customers want to know.
Uncle Sam Wants You...To Win The 2009 Bocuse
Forget Top Chef, Hell’s Kitchen, Next Food Network Star and any
other made-for-TV cooking shows; the Bocuse d’Or in France is the
pinnacle of culinary competitions. No American has ever won it, or even
come close, but that could change this year. An all-star group of
superchefs headed by Daniel Boulud and Thomas Keller is mobilizing to
help one U.S. chef win the January, 2009 edition of this biennial event.
You’ve got until June 30 to apply…but you’d better take a gander
