Made in America: How four dishes with roots in other lands tell a story of immigration and transformation


4 foods.jpg


Gumbo. Chile con queso. California roll. Spaghetti and meatballs.

The names are as familiar as household brands. Yet how much do you know about these dishes? Based on the names alone, with their roots in other languages and other cultures, each dish sounds like an import. In some ways, they are. But each dish also morphed and adapted to its new environment, transforming into something uniquely American.

Some transformed through industrialization. Another required the ingenuity of chefs willing to break from tradition. One adapted, and continues to adapt, to the dizzying constellation of cultures that is New Orleans.

Sustainable packaging: Carlsberg Group is working on world’s first paper beer bottle




Carlsberg Group is on a journey to create the world’s first “paper” beer bottle that is both 100 percent bio-based and fully recyclable. The photo above is one of its two new Green Fiber Bottle research prototypes that are made from sustainably-sourced wood fiber and have an inner barrier to allow the bottles to contain beer.

One prototype uses a thin recycled PET polymer film barrier, and the other a 100 percent bio-based PEF polymer film barrier. These prototypes will be used to test the barrier technology as Carlsberg seeks a solution to achieve its ultimate ambition of a 100 percent bio-based bottle without polymers.

Weber-Brand DCM.jpg


Weber Scientific’s HLP Medium (Hsu’s Lactobacillus and Pediococcus Medium) allows fast and simple testing for the most common beer spoiling bacteria. Autoclaving the medium before use is not required.  

Many lactic acid bacteria can be detected in as little as 48 hours with only minimal lab equipment required. Differentiation and selective counting of Lactobacillus and Pediococcus can be performed after 5 days of incubation. When used in screw-cap tubes, anaerobic incubation is not required.

Please! For the Love of Food Safety, Stop Washing Your Chicken


Do you rinse raw chicken under the kitchen faucet before cooking it? Julia Child did it regularly, and rinsing chicken before prepping and cooking has become common practice in many households. A study from Drexel University found that approximately 90% of people say they wash their chicken before cooking it as historically recipes did instruct people to do so. Even today many folks believe that rinsing chicken can wash away pathogenic bacteria and make the chicken safe to eat. Here’s why you shouldn’t rinse raw chicken.
