Organic Yummies

Organic food has become a new trend within colleges. Trying to eat healthy has become a goal for many Americans since we are known in the world for being one of the most unhealthiest countries. So what exactly is organic food? Organic foods are produce or meats that do not use pesticides, insecticides and or herbicides to maintain them.

Because organic food has become so popular lately, supermarkets other than the popular organic supermarkets like:Wegmans,Whole Food’s andTrader Joes, regular supermarkets have started putting up organic food sections.

AtSafeway, Shoppers Food Warehouse and Super Fresh are among the many grocery stores that have started to carry organic foods. I went to Super Fresh the other day and noticed that their big organic section was fruit, specifically apples.

Apples are among the many fruits that have gone organic.

 

I’ve noticed that besides supermarkets, restaurants have started to incorporate organic food in their recipes as well. In the Baltimore area there are numerous organic restaurants to choose from. Cafes like Flying Avocado in Owings Mills provide the most natural and organic food to their customers. A variety of food ranging from salads, wraps and sandwiches, Flying Avocado incorporates healthy ingredients in their healthy foods. Even nice restaurants like Woodberry Kitchen uses organic meats from local farmers to give the utmost deliciously clean foods.

German/Food

It’s funny how my first blog focus is about traveling and food and my reaction piece happens to be about Germany and food

The quotes from all the locals that live by Edelweiss make the story more personable. It shows that multimedia can help readers get a better understanding of what they are reading. It can help other people relate to the experience because the story is about immigrants opening up a bakery and are maintaining their culture. There are so many immigrants that had to start from scratch in the United States. Although everyone has to adjust to American culture, most try to keep their roots whether it’s by food, music, or people. “Thursday German Days,” is a great way to experience good food and German culture. The accordion music played by Alfred Zeller makes Thursdays at Edelweiss a little more “German” than most days. The bakery brings people together and that is really what Zeller’s goal was. To keep his German culture alive, attract ladies, and to really enjoy his life. 

The article shows a charming side of food and culture. The video montage of pictures, music, and people speaking really make it easier for the readers to understand the full experience.  It makes you feel warm inside by watching and it makes you want to experience Edelweiss yourself.

Travel well, eat swell.

Brian Lenehan is a food connoisseur. There is no one else I know that is as enthusiastic about food. Every detail, every flavor, and the presentation all matter whether or not the food is from a diner or from a five-star restaurant. Lenehan loves food so much that sometimes he will go out of his way to eat the best foods. Traveling to eat is his idea of a great vacation.

Lenehan took a short trip to California and on his way back he purposely stopped for one night in Chicago to experience Gourmet Magazine’s pick for the best restaurant in America, Alinea. The head chef, Grant Achatz was named the “Best Chef in America” of 2008 by the James Beard Foundation. When I asked him why he deliberately stopped to eat in Chicago he said,

“Food is my passion. I want to experience the best there is. What’s here today won’t be tomorrow, so I don’t want to miss anything.” 

Lenehan said that if you’re going to spend money to travel, it should be a priority to eat something great while you’re there to ensure that the city you visit leaves a lasting impression. 

“There is nothing more lasting than a new flavor to your palette,” Lenehan said.
