  • California foie gras lovers drive to Nevada to stock up
    Six months after California's state-wide ban on producing and selling foie gras, lovers of the fatty duck livers have found a different way to score their favorite treat: cross the border to Nevada. "My sales have actually doubled, so the ban has been a very good thing for my business," said Laurel Pine, owner of foie gras producer Mirepoix USA, which moved from California to Nevada last year. "It's actually increased interest in the product more than ever." CNBC (12/10) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Mediterranean ingredients give special meaning to Hanukkah recipes
    Hanukkah is a celebration of the miraculous story of an Israeli temple's lamps which stayed lit for eight days on only a day's worth of oil, so it is only fitting that olive oil and other biblical-era ingredients are mainstays of the holiday's traditional salads, appetizers and entrees. Cookbook author Faye Levy shares her favorite Hanukkah recipes that use barley, wheat, dried fruits and legumes from "the land of milk and honey."

  • Dietitians aren't sold on benefits of 'ancient' grains
    Ancient grains, which were domesticated thousands of years ago, are popping up in breads, pastas and even cookies on grocery store shelves around the nation, but their nutritional benefits can't always justify their hefty prices. While some ancient grain producers claim they are safe for gluten-free consumers, many dietitians aren't buying that the grains are any better for you than modern whole wheat.
