Review: The $7 a Meal Quick & Easy Cookbook

Chef Susan IrbyDespite what the media and politician’s (let’s face it; they are the same thing) keep saying, the economy is only getting worse.  Americans love their sequels but I don’t think the Great Depression II is one they have been looking forward to.  Never the less it is here.  The big wigs in DC may not be feeling the pinch but the rest of us are and like our predecessors we are pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps.

Todd English Calls Off Wedding to Erica Wang

Posted by Meredith Goldstein October 4, 2009 01:32 PM for

Boston’s foremost celebrity chef is still a bachelor. Todd English, of Olives and Bonfire fame, was supposed to marry Erica Wang, his girlfriend of almost two years, at the St. Regis in New York on Saturday night, but the pair canceled the wedding at the last minute.

English’s reps say the decision was mutual and that the couple’s family and friends were notified of the split a few days in advance, but some guests tell us they were already en route to New York City when they heard the wedding was off. Insiders tell us the news wasn’t a shock. Apparently, English and Wang’s relationship was a turbulent one.

More on this story.

Airline In-Flight Meals Soar

In 2007 American Airlines unveiled new in-flight meals on premium service flights to Hawai’i, superlative dinners designed by cheflebrity Sam Choy. Choy’s imaginative menu featured both traditional and modern interpretations of the diverse cuisine of the Island state.

This year American is expanding the program by including similar dishes for many of their international flights: European travelers are treated to rosemary-scented shrimp drizzled with garlic sauce, Asian voyagers enjoy chicken Thai curry over Jasmine rice. They have even called on acclaimed Sommelier Diane Teitelbaum to perfectly pair each offering.

There are special menus for flights bound for Latin America, US transcontinental routes, and even domestic flights. Other airlines are following suit with notable chefs like Charlie Trotter, Michele Bernstein, and Todd English designing new high-flying menus. If only we could afford to fly somewhere.
