OMGitsme, why do you think spices were introduced to food to begin with?

Re: “Knead to Know

His breads are the best you can buy. Nothing like another bakery or supermarket bakery. The only issue is purchasing the bread, the lack of a good distribution. He needs to distribute his breads in supermarkets and grocery stores. Check out his website and enjoy his bread, you will be hooked on it.

Re: “Best of Benin: Alafia

this restaurant sounds interesting. but I have found some restaurants use herbs or spices to cover the flavor or taste of old food. This restaurant certainly doesn't sound like that kind. I need to try it soon.

Re: “The Road to UNESCO

Congrats for being the only local news organization to report on this before the fact. When I heard the news today, I knew I'd read about this someplace recently.

Re: “Gone Gourmand

Lead with a picture of Jack's + no mention in the article? When Jack + his wife ran the place it was without doubt the BEST barbecue in several states. Your BEST OF winners wouldn't hold a candle to them. Moved to Texas to retire + I presume moved on to the big Q in the sky by now. Every time I drive by there , I miss them. Damn now my mouth is watering just from the memory! Will try the new Dickey's but prepared to be dissapointed.

BigMatt - the published book is actually 146 pages long not including the index etc. 80 pages was the manuscript.

Dean Short and Hugh Downs "owned" the food business in Tucson and were good friends. High owned the Cactus Corp. which included the Cactus Drive In and the Cactus Bowl.

Re: “Gone Gourmand

$22 for an 80 page book? I'll wait for the paperback version. Oh wait, this is the paperback version! I'll find it in a few years at Goodwill. It's not like any of these restaurants will be re-opening anytime soon.
