Bites: This week in food (6/4 – 6/8)

A little late, but here are the news this week.

FRIDAY
What does the world eat?

I came across TIME magazine’s photo essay What the World Eats. It’s based on the book Hungry Planet. The differences from country to country are interesting. What struck me the most was the abundance of fruit and vegetables in some diets (i.e. Mexico) versus others (i.e. U.S.).

THURSDAY
Got a coconut in your kitchen?

But don’t know what to do with it? The Herald helps out with 10 things to make with coconut.

WEDNESDAY
Learn to pair food and wine

Cooking with Amy has a great list of tips and tools to help you pair wines with food.

TUESDAY
Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink

Check out SotP’s review of the recent addition to the Design District. (The Herald also reviewed Michael’s on Thursday.)

MONDAY
Coming soon: DeVito South Beach

Actor Danny DeVito and restauranteur David Manero will open DeVito South Beach in mid-June. (150 Ocean Drive). The restaurant’s signature dish will feature three types of Kobe beef.

  1. You know Danny Devito was here in Providence the same weekend you were here. He was at his daughter’s Brown U graduation. Not that this relates to food, but I thought it was freaky coincidence…BTW great bites…I love this entry…
