Food Focus: Movie Theater Food

Years ago, before movie theaters began to realize that people like to eat real food while they watch movies, I was the world champion of smuggling food into a theater. While it’s difficult for me to admit my illicit past, I can’t help but boast just a little about the time I stashed a full meal and two large blended coffee drinks into my huge purse so my husband and I could dine while we watched a film. Yeah, that’s right. You can call us Bonnie and Clyde.

Luckily for hardened criminals like myself, I was able to turn away from smuggling food right around the time movie theaters began offering more than just popcorn and candy. Now don’t get me wrong; I love popcorn and candy, but if a...

It's An All-Chicken CSA

Massena Farms, an 80 acre farm outside of Bennington NE., announces a new Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program for fresh, pasture-raised poultry. “We plan to raise our chickens in the Nebraska sunshine where they’ll feed naturally on grains, bugs and grass,” said Jim Steffen, president and CEO of Massena Farms. There is a lot of great information on the CSA and more on the farm's commitment to naturally fresh, open air, chickens free from antibiotics and genetically modified grains on their website

The Perfect Paring: A Rye Tasting at Library Pub

Appreciating the small things had a whole new meaning on January 25th. A little bit of rye, a little bit of food, a lot of overwhelming intoxication of the senses. Nearly delirious with the memory of soft scallop, creamy egg, and the friendly, sweet burn of whiskey, my husband and I could hardly find the words to discuss the incredible tastes and smells of that evening.

But let me try.

Library Pub played host to a whisky tasting with Chef Tom Meade at the reins. Walking into the bar, with its neighborhood feel and dusty books, it was an interesting blend of class and casual. Nearly 40 people attended the tasting, along with onlookers sipping beers from a mix of taps. Owner Mark Smith,...

Swine Dining

Swine Dining This swine is mighty fine. By Tamsen Butler I really like BBQ, but only when it’s done right. If you hand me a slab of substandard meat and smother it with some sickly sweet sauce designed for nothing more than to mask the fact that you’re handing me a slab of substandard meat, then I will scowl at you. Ask my husband and he will likely tell you that my scowl is to be avoided at all costs. So when I visited Swine Dining in Bellevue I was prepared for one of two outcomes: either I would leave scowling, or I would instead be eager to tell you about how great this place is and urge you to try it out. Luckily, there was no scowling whatsoever with Swine Dining. I was told...

Food Focus: Bagels

Food Focus: Bagels Better Bagels at the Bin By Tamsen Butler My grandfather was always very particular about bagels. If you handed him a bagel that he didn’t consider authentic, he would grumble something in Yiddish and start talking about what bagels were like in New York, where he was originally from. Heaven help you if you asked for “just a little cream cheese, please,” because when it was time for bagels with my Papa, you had a thick shmear of cream cheese. So you’ll have to forgive me if I’m a bit of a bagel snob because as you can see, I come by it honestly. I’m guilty of more than once turning my nose up at generic bagels and trying to explain the difference between a...
