Let Them Eat Cake

Results of NoDef's King Cake Walk are in



The results of NoDef's King Cake Walk are in! For the second year in a row, Bittersweet Confections has landed the win for their vibrantly sugared cake filled with rich chocolate. But, Bittersweet was only one of the local bakeries represented in the competition, all of whom brought their best game to the challenge. The barren platters at the event's end provided evidence that there are no loosers in the world of cake.


Whole Foods Broad Turns One


It seems like yesterday that the concept of putting a Whole Foods on Broad Street seemed absurd. However, the upscale market was built and has thrived in the 300 North Broad location. On Thursday (2.04), the location will celebrate their one year anniversary with a public party.

Whole Foods Talks Turkey With NoDef



Thanksgiving isn’t affectionately called Turkey Day for no reason. The bird has been part of the holiday going all the way back to the first Thanksgiving in 1621. While it isn’t certain whether the Pilgrims and the Native Americans actually feasted on the fowl, it is certain that millions of Americans will be eating turkey this Thanksgiving. The stress of cooking it is enough to ruffle anyone’s feathers. Here are some tips and tricks to cook the tasty bird that will be enough to impress even the most difficult of mother-in-laws.


Mid-City Whole Foods Opens


Heavy fog failed to damper local enthusiasm for the opening ceremony of the Broad Street Whole Foods store, with a few hundred people turning out to welcome the chain to the area this morning. Local officials, company men and area residents all talked about the store more in terms of community revitalization rather than just fresh food, though the $0.99/lb porkchops did prompt a line in the freezer section.

You Can't Have it All: The Challenges of Eating Local



For the entire month of June, The NOLA Locavores group is running its third annual Eat Local Challenge, a 30-day call to action to New Orleanians to consume only ingredients – including oil and seasonings – that were farmed, raised or caught within 200 miles of the city.
