S. Lee's Battlefield of American History

It's a funny thing, Zooming with Spike Lee. He's remote, confined within a box within a box on your computer screen, and yet somehow undiminished. Maybe it's the look — the ball cap and the glasses — or maybe it's the way he looks at you. Now, in the middle of a global calamity, and with a new film, Da 5 Bloods, that revisits the Vietnam War, he is its witness once again — older, more contemplative and as insatiable as ever, despite a legacy as solid as exists in American cinema.

Food Network's recipe principles

Given the number of ingredients that humans eat, the total number of ways to combine them is on the order of 10 to the 15th power. So an ongoing challenge for food scientists is to discover laws that govern flavor combinations and use them to create new recipes yet to be experienced by human taste buds.

The non-essential rest. worker's life

We started to grasp the severity of the COVID-19 situation about halfway through a Thursday night shift. It was March 12, and I was on the takeout register at the Los Angeles Vietnamese restaurant where I've worked for the past two years. Our busser had been coughing heavily for about a month, and now he was visibly sweating. "I think I have to go home," he said. At that point, I was naive enough to think he could get tested and treated. He nodded and left.

News came to us in fragments. One table mentioned the NBA had just ended its season; another was frantic about the European travel ban. I began making a list of food and non-perishables to get from the grocery store. We laughed at my scattered list and our utter confusion, still unsure where this all was going.

'blue calamintha' bee found in Cent. Florida

An extremely rare blue bee has been spotted in Central Florida, a discovery that thrilled researchers who suspected the insect might have become instinct. The blue calamintha bee was seen by Florida Museum of Natural History researcher Chase Kimmel in the Lake Wales Ridge region in March. "I was open to the possibility that we may not find the bee at all so that first moment when we spotted it in the field was really exciting," said Kimmel, a postdoctoral researcher.

10 Hot Dog toppings

Can we be honest? Hot dogs don't exactly thrill us. This summer, we're mixing things up. The next time you grill a few franks (or hey, boil them on the stove), keep the usual condiments in the fridge and go for one of these 10 over-the-top combos. So, grab some dogs and some buns (we're suckers for potato) and let's do this thing.

When franchise lunch stops are all that's left

The COVID-19 pandemic has upended every aspect of life. For the restaurant industry, which has been decimated, it means head chefs now make home deliveries, while other operators transition to meal kits and pantry items.  It appears for now that large, publicly traded chain-restaurant companies are better poised for survival. For all the awards and accolades independent restaurants earn, their profits are notoriously small.

Cured meats have left the sandwich

I'm not packing sandwiches for any sprawling park picnics anytime soon, and I'm not making any artfully arranged concentric circles of cheese and charcuterie to serve to friends before dinner parties. And yet, the salami picante and finocchiona keep making their way into my periodic grocery orders.

For the same reasons that they make great snack standbys for impromptu gatherings, cured meats like pancetta and hard salami should have a regular slot in your pantry rotation.

Will COVID-19 revive the meal kit market?

Remember when Blue Apron was poised for a hot IPO? It's only been three years, but it seems like a lifetime. Now it looks like COVID – at least for now – is reviving the meal kit market. We don't claim to be prescient we suggested that restaurants should worry about the possibility that people would turn to cooking at home in large numbers and undermine the business. Little did we know that a new coronavirus was headed our way to perversely redefine what eating healthy means.
