Welcome to Week 31 of 2020. Chef Works® Weekly Bites is where we take a dive into the notable and fun food stories of the week.
Culinary has plenty of star power. But with restaurants and hospitality still struggling, it might take some celebrities outside of the industry to help restaurants recover.
Chef Andrew Zimmern is teaming up with Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman in an effort to create some political leverage. People magazine has the report:
The celebrity chef’s television and digital production company Intuitive Content and the Independent Restaurant Coalition have released a new ad, narrated by the Academy Award-winning actor, to urge for Congress to pass the Restaurants Act — which would establish a $120 billion fund to help independent restaurants.
- You need a pro to feed the pros. Read how Chef Shawn Loving may have saved the NBA. Story from Delish.
- Tired of being cooped up inside to eat? Perhaps a little outdoor dining at home will spruce things up. This AP story has all the details for stylish outdoor dining. (No apparel is mentioned, but we’ve got some apron ideas! See below in Wear of the Week).
- These revamped “salad bars,” compiled by Taste of Home, are hilarious.
- Is mac and cheese only a dinner food? How about a lunch food? But breakfast? MSN takes a look at Kraft’s new marketing tactic.
This next story keeps with the theme of the previous one – the idea that meals aren’t shackled to certain times of the day.
With that in mind, cereal can be dessert, right? It’s the 24-hour-a-day food that can be a breakfast, lunch, dinner or after-dinner treat.
Wisely, Dunkin’ has turned their coffee flavors into a sweet cereal treat. Check out this story from PopSugar on the new Caramel Macchiato and Mocha Latte cereal concoctions.
