Delicious DIRT. Juice

  • If some of Chicago’s food nerds had no idea who they’d vote for in the next mayoral election, we’re sure their minds have been changed now: Rahm Emanuel “actually lean(s) towards allowing” food trucks, and he wants to use them to “combat food deserts.” Well, Rahm, we think that’s a novel idea. Read the story here.  So psyched for The Southern’s Mac and Cheese Truck- 4 more days… 
  • If you’ve never been to Bray, England’s temple of molecular gastronomy The Fat Duck, well, you’re not the only one. But you may have just a slightly better chance of getting to Heston Blumenthal’s newest spot, Dinner, which opened at the Mandarin Oriental in London two days ago.
  • This is the some of the best news we’ve ever heard: Acclaimed French chefs such as Guy Savoy, Alain Ducasse and Joel Robuchon have created the Culinary College of France. Can you imagine what brilliant toques will walk out of that school?!
  • Stephanie Izard is still riding the wave of success. She plans publish “Girl in the Kitchen” during the fall, and has already taken cover shots. Read about what she’s doing here.
