Crumbs

Daily Grub at 20th and Pierce, your local vegetable eatery, is now serving dinner on Monday nights. The meal comes prix fixe at $20 with three courses of vegetable goodness. Last week was a choice of chips and salsa, jicama with chili and lime or stuffed endive for a starter, black bean or posole soup, and two grilled black-bean tamales as a main course. Proprietor Elle Lien will still be serving lunch as usual Tues.-Fri. 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Visit dailygrubomaha.com. Metropolitan Community College will host the U.S. Department of Agriculture for a listening session at the Institute of Culinary Arts Friday, Sept. 24, from 2:30-5:30 p.m. The USDA is encouraging anti-hunger and food-justice advocates as well as farmers, ranchers, chefs, grocers, government workers and concerned citizens to attend the session to ask questions, garner more information and voice concerns. The USDA will use feedback from the session to guide policies and programs for the region.

Mario Batali’s a busy guy, no wonder he’s lost weight. In addition to opening the massive Eataly, a 50,000 square foot devoted to all things Italian, he’s launching a new magazine, Viaggio, with Bob Guccione, Jr. (no, not that one, the one who launched SPIN) that’ll be available free in all Batali enterprises, working on an online cookbook and has just released a new app called Mario Cooks! for the iPhone and iPad. Phew. The app draws from his bank of cookbooks and includes 85 video segments and 63 recipe demos. You can browse by region, course, prep-time, season, category of food or kid-friendliness, and step-by-step images ensure you don’t screw things up too badly. And, as they say, much more.   — Kyle Tonniges Comments? Questions? Want more? Check out our Booked blog online at thereader.com. Or email us at booked@thereader.com.
