HAPPY MARCH!

Today I have four very cool articles that will absolutely knock your socks off, foodies.

The first one having to do with a snack most of us have eaten in our lifetimes: popcorn.

But I’m not talking movie theater popcorn, I’m talking the microwave popcorn bags you buy at the store and hope you don’t either under cook (with lots of unpopped kernels left in the bag) or overcook (blackened popcorn).

Michigan-based Whirlpool has come out with a new microwave that actually listens to the sounds of cooking to tell when something is done.

The article I found from The Daily Meal describes the microwave’s AccuPop technology for popcorn, that “can help the microwave adjust just by listening to and counting the time, between kernel pops.”

How cool is that?!Read on to find out what else it can do, and how you can buy it yourself!|||||One of my favorite quotes of all time: “If music be the food of love, play on.” Shakespeare truly has it right, and it goes along with the next article I’m sharing with you.
Food Network is holding its first EVER concert, as I discovered in an Eater article.

Have you ever been to a grocery store that is just, magical?Stew Leonards is that place for me. Growing up in Connecticut I always had so much fun wandering down the maze of an aisle that is Stew’s, with the really cool animatronic characters that would sing to you throughout the store (I know the songs – “We’re Dole fresh vegetables we’re good for you!”). It truly is the Disney World of grocery stores as many say.eatalyjpegEataly, a really cool Italian market in New York City serving up fresh Italian goods, is planning to build a theme park in Italy, which is indeed all about food, according to an article from Eater. And it’s being called the “Disneyland of Food.”Can we say awesome?! According to the article, “The nearly 20-acre park will build “restaurants, grocery stores, food labs, and an aquarium” on grounds that are currently occupied by unused warehouses.”Eataly’s planning to call the park Fico Eataly World, and according to the article, is hoping to open in November 2015. |||||And for my Dayton friends, EXCITING news this week from the fabulous guys of Fusian.
