News Roundup: December 13, 2012

Just back from a day trip to Chicago, where instead of delicious deep dish pizza or high concept delights, I ate at Chi-town headquartered McDonald's...at the airport...after my flight was cancelled...for the second week business trip in a row. Not my idea of good eating!

So on to more interesting news...

I've long heard rumblings of discontent about Robert Parker's power in the wine biz. Now one of his minions is caught up in a payola scandal!

Atlanta won't be the same without Tierra's heavenly tres leches cake. I'm heartbroken just thinking of a world without its creamy charms.

Since it's election season...do you know which food companies are spending the most on lobbying?

The AIDS Awareness Day Belvedere Party at STK last week was amaze-balls (Note to self: never miss parties thrown by Caren West). Now you too can enjoy the meaty glamour when it opens to the public on Thrusday.

And now in other news completely unrelated to food. I sat next to the PhD who did this research on my flight home today. My takeaway? TAKE YOUR VITAMIN D! Seriously, I'm not kidding, take a boat load of Vitamin D. That is my public health announcement of the day.

Just saw that you linked to my post about Dr. Bruce Hollis & his ground-breaking vitamin D pregnancy study. Thank you!

So jealous that you sat next to Hollis on your flight & got to hear first hand his take on vitamin D. He definitely convinced me & I now take 4000 IUs a days--living where the shine doesn't shine much.

Would love to hear what else you learned from this vitamin D pioneer!
