Celebrate Eggs?

Meet, Greet and Eat
Cheese is on the menu at the Shelburne Farms Coach Barn on July 25th.  Celebrate cheese at this sampling, buying and networking event in Shelburne, VT.

Calling all Lobster Lovers
…to attend the Maine Lobster Festival in Rockland, ME, from August 4-8th for a cooking contest, lobster crate race and lots o’ lobster. If you’re heading to the Big Apple instead, Luke’s Lobster has you covered!

What should I eat for dinner?
Michael Pollan (The Omnivore’s Dilemma and In Defense of Food) recently wrote Food Rules, the smallest diet book around. With these simple ideas about food, plus our recent post from Anastacia Marx de Salcedo on  “eating slow n’ cheap,”  tough food choices may not be so tough after all.

The Cooking Channel is on the move, and they have ice cream
The Cooking Channel’s ice cream truck is making moves across the country. Read Devour, the Cooking Channel blog, for the truck’s whereabouts and other food news. Boston readers: this ice cream vehicle has come and gone, but have no fear; maybe you’ll catch it on vacation!
