Yummy for the Tummy

There are few satisfying meals simpler than toast slathered with your favorite spread. But don’t limit it to peanut butter and jelly. When it comes to topping a blank canvas, the only limit is your imagination.

And it all starts with the humble toast. Try these recipes with perfectly toasted bread!

1. Avocado toast

2. Creamed mushroom toast

3. Poached egg and parmesan cheese toast

Global wrap! Five food-nomena we love! (#1)

Food-nomena delivered from around the world!

I love food science, but I also devour food stories that give me a taste of the world’s cultures and connections. Here are five of my favorites this week!

1. Who would have thought Utah a hotbed for Hawaiian food, or that Alaska flips for Filipino food? Find out the most popular cuisine in your state.

2. Korean restaurants present a buffet right at your table! Examine each delectable dish in the ensemble in “30 Korean Side Dishes on the Table!”.

3. Yes, you must have sashimi and sushi when you’re in Japan. But there’s so much more to local food. Try these recommendations from “Taste of Japan – Top Dishes for Visitors to Try“.

4. Michelle Obama thinks out of the box (of mac and cheese), banishing processed foods from her family’s table. Repeat after her: Cheese dust is not food.

5. Americans know General Tso’s chicken means Chinese food, but you won’t be able to find the dish in China. The Search for General Tso is a documentary that hopes to “uncover the origins of this iconic dish… and is as much about food as it is a tale of the American immigrant experience”. I watched the trailer and thought it was hilarious!
