American Cheese Month!

October 12, 2011 § Leave a comment

I saw this on the kitchn and had to repost. It’s American cheese month!

Why should you care?

If you live in the New York or Seattle, you have very good reason to. With a $10 donation for a cheese passport, you get 40% off your purchase of American cheeses every day this month. YUM!

So what if you’re lactose intolerant?

According to the NIH (National Institutes of Health), it seems that most ethnicities may be affected.

Lactose intolerance is a common condition that is more likely to occur in adulthood, with a higher incidence in older adults. Some ethnic and racial populations are more affected than others, including African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, and Asian Americans. The condition is least common among Americans of northern European descent.

However, in my experience, your body may be able to tolerate milks from different animals (goat, sheep, buffalo) and/or raw milk cheeses.

There is a surprisingly wide range to choose from. “At the 2011 Annual American Cheese Society Competition, over 1,600 American artisan cheeses were entered!” –American Cheese Education Foundation

If you love cheese or just curious, this is definitely the month to give it a try!

Ever need a sprinkle of cheese? Bring these pencils along for fresh shaved cheese with Truffle, Pesto or Chili at the center. Portion sizes and sharpener included. Too bad they’re sold out!

If you win, meal, transportation and hotel included.

I know this is to support his campaign, but it is a cool way to do it.

For only $5 you can enter your name to be one of four people to have dinner with the President. So cool!

Enter your name before June 30th and the donation amount does not increase your chances.

2011 Food “Pyramid”

2011 new food “pyramid”

I remember growing up with the 1992 version of the food pyramid and had no idea there was another version after. The 2005 version was not publicized, unclear and looked tacky (what’s new). Today launches the start of the new version. It’s definitely more visually appealing, but still lacks clear direction. Will this be a better guide? A better question- will people care?

Cookbook, Vegas & Contest

chef Tal Ronnen and Kathy Freston making creamy asparagus soup

The reason why I went to the Los Angeles book festival yesterday was to meet vegan chef Tal Ronnen. I was so excited to hear him speak and buy his book because he graduated from my future school (The Natural Gourmet Institute). He cooked for Oprah during her vegan cleanse and for Ellen & Portia’s wedding. I love his new book (the conscious cook) and am excited to try some recipes!
