As a farmer I both love running a CSA program and also stress out about it at times. Joining a CSA is a wonderful way to eat local, seasonal and at times unique vegetables. It also really helps a f...
  • etsummer I loved when I was a CSA member! The farm where I got my produce used to send out a newsletter with each basket, with a recipe and tips for using some of the not so well-known fruits and veggies,...
  • Rachna I loved the csa when I was a part of it because it actually simplified food shopping and ensured I tried new things. But I did miss going to the farmers markets.

Proposed solution for labeling GMO food: QR codes? I mean no matter your feelings about GMO food, QR codes as a solution for anything, ever... Sorry. I'm biasing the discussion. Would you scan a QR...
  • sugardetoxme I have used a QR code once. So I'm with you. I'm curious what other folks on the farming, journalism and policy front think would be great solutions @SaraGassman @olivettefarm @Emmatellsfoodstories...

Is it in food production? Distribution? Access? Waste? Consumer education? Legislation? Something else entirely? Would love to hear what you guys think.
  • katewilson I'm voting food waste but I'm thrilled to see how much efforts are being put behind it now
  • darkchocolatepeanutbutter I still feel the dietary guidelines are inadequate. If the USDA could consider the public over corporations, we'd have better direction.
  • sugardetoxme It's two parts for me. Food waste is obviously huge. If good food was about actually feeding people then we wouldn't have hunger, but food has become a business. But let's also talk about the big...

  • darkchocolatepeanutbutter I've always wanted to go there! Looks amazing. Hu serves paleo food which I like to eat when I don't want any grains. It's on 5th Ave between 13th and 14th St.
  • SimplySeema @darkchocolatepeanutbutter yes, love Hu. Thank you. If you discover any Chinese or Thai spots that you recommend, do let me know. :)

First time in to a shakeshack. Question: anyone know if Danny Meyer has committed to using non GMO soy oil to fry his fries? I didn't try the fries as the server could not give an answer!

Love hard boiled eggs, but have a hard time taking the shell off. Any good tricks to share with me?

  • sugardetoxme Don't use fresh ones (unfortunately) and shock with cold water right after boiling.
  • sugardetoxme Also putting eggs in a closed Tupperware and shaking vigorously to shatter the shell works
  • lauren I was told salt will do the trick!

Sweet beets with ricotta salata and rich toasty hazelnuts are a great foil for these bitter dandelion greens!
