Two Old Market fixtures celebrate milestones

Signature Old Market spot M's Pub celebrates 40 years in business this year. It's a milestone for any independently owned restaurant. But reaching four decades takes on added meaning because when M's opened in 1973 (a planned 1972 opening was delayed), the fledgling Market's survival looked unsure.

The Market though went from counter culture social experiment to mixed use success story. M's owners Ann Mellen and Ron Samuelson doubly appreciate a thriving Market as their highly reviewed eatery is a fixture along with a second respected restaurant they own there, Vivace, which marks its 20th anniversary this fall. The establishments are emblems of the district's sustainability and growth....

Cook It In 2013

I’m going to break the myth that cooking from scratch, at home is faster or less expensive than snagging some takeout. In some cases, it absolutely is, in others it probably isn’t.

Cooking, like any new skill, takes time to learn. As you do more, you know more, once you know more you can do “it” faster – cut it, find it, prepare it and put it together in a snap. Once you build a foundation of basic knife skills and reserve a little space in your mind for making dinner at home sans the box or bag or plastic container you will make dinner faster. Once you know three ways to cook chicken breasts, then you may remember that bird came with a set of thighs, you will cook those a time or two...

Looking Forward to 2013

Given that world is supposed to end before my deadline, it almost seems foolish to write a story predicting what is to come in land of local food. If you are reading this, then I guess we all made it through alive. This is less of a prediction and more of a hope that we, as a community of people who eat, can use food to improve our health, our families and our lives in 2013.
Although, I tend to write almost exclusively about local food you should know that, above all things, I believe firmly in the value of a home cooked meal. Cooking awakens your senses and your desire for food that tastes good. Once you taste good food, it’s nearly impossible to go back. Once you learn to make...

Crumbs January 2, 2013

Let’s start the New Year off right with a donation to Truck Farm Omaha. Truck Farm Omaha travels around our area educating our youth about where their food comes from in a very hands-on way by showing them how to garden in the back of a truck. If you visit their website and donate, your donation can sponsor a Truck Farm visit that teaches kids about food through Truck Farm Omaha’s mobile garden. The website is www.truckfarmomaha.com for more information.

Honors have been extended to Terry Huang Ph. D and his collaborators for accepting the Design Research Award and Scholarship from the Virginia Society of the American Institutes of Architects in November for a school design that...
