Help the Good Food Revolution

Local filmmakers Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette are trying to raise enough money to sponsor an airing of their documentary Growing Cities on PBS. The film is about urban farming and the positive impact it has on communities, and a showing of the film on PBS would reach a national audience. Want to help? Check out the duo’s Kickstarter campaign to donate. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/growincities/growing-cities-lets-get-urban-farming-on-pbs

You Are What You Eat

I try to be a mindful eater. Considering that we are what we put into our body, I want to be sure I’m made of healthy, pretty things. So I recently took an inventory of the foods I regularly eat, and here is what I found; if I am indeed what I eat, then I am made of approximately 30% fruits and vegetables, 20% animal, 15% eggs and dairy, and 35% a combination of additives that years of winning spelling bees won’t help me to sound out, chemicals that even scientists have to use initials or nicknames for, and seven synonyms for sugar.

Ouch.

What the heck are you eating?

Let’s talk about a common food additive, but instead of saying “Butylated Hydroxytoluene,” let’s say “jet fuel.” It’s...

More Than a Meal

Food is fashionable. From blogs to news reports, it is common to hear words like “farm to table”, “locally sourced,” “free-range, free-trade, cage-free,” in reference to the food we choose to eat. Food truly can be an art form for those with the means, and the luck, to be able to handpick their meals. But there is a large majority of the population who associate “hungry,” and “not enough,” when it comes to food.

And many of them are right here in Omaha.

In a 2008-2012 census data report, Douglas County had a population of nearly 540,000 people, with 14% of those living below the poverty line. Comparatively, Nebraska as a whole reported 12.4% individuals living below the poverty line.

Marks Bistro Chef Now Co-Owner

Executive Chef James Davis joins the shareholders and becomes a co-owner at Marks Bistro in Dundee. He joins three other shareholders, all of which work at Marks Bistro full-time. You probably already know that the food at Marks is amazing, but now you know that the people who work there believe in what they’re doing enough to where they’re willing to put their money where their mouths are, metaphorically.  http://www.marksindundee.com/

The End of Many Eras

A rash of recent restaurant closings seem to have happened rather abruptly. Among the list: Bellevue Café, Taste Bistro, and perhaps most jolting, Grandmothers, which was in business for 40 years before...

Food Trucks Galore
If you’re looking for your favorite food truck this summer, go swing by 11th & Nicholas during the day and you’ll likely find more than one truck parked there, serving up some delicious food. Scotty’s Go Go Grill plans on being there every day and other trucks (including 402 BBQ, Island Seasons, The Sandwich Shop and more) will stop by throughout the day too, especially during the College World Series.  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Scottys-Go-Go-Grill

Mobile Mexican

Maria Bonita originally began as an open seating restaurant. When the family-owned restaurant closed, owner Itzel Lopez explained they decided to stay in business and do something different. That’s how they wound up taking their food to the people in a food truck.

“With food trucks, you’re able to bring your food to more people in different areas of the city,” says Lopez.

Two years into the process, Maria Bonita has expanded and now has three food trucks.

Growing mobility, growing popularity
She said having multiple trucks parked in different venues has helped grow her business by gaining her more customers. On any given week, the three trucks cover 15 or more locations.

“Our reputation...
