The Daily Dish: September 10, 2015


Dishing out the latest and greatest in food news

Learn more about what is hot and trending in the world of food and drink.

Welcome to The Daily Meal’s Daily Dish, where we highlight what’s hot and trending in the world of all things food and drink.

Today’s first course?

Data indicates pumpkin mania may have peaked. The new autumnal essence that might claim the fall flavor throne? Salted caramel.

In other product news, Surge Soda is back. Coca-Cola discontinued Surge in 2003 due to poor sales, but over the years, fans’ calls for Surge’s return have well, surged. The ‘90s citrus soda will appear in the Midwest and on the East Coast starting September 7.

Now to the world of fast food! Citing a desire to focus on food, McDonald’s announced plans to serve only 100 percent cage-free eggs in America and Canada by 2025. McDonald’s purchases 2 billion eggs annually in the U.S. alone.

And…Oregon is getting its first In-N-Out. It joins California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, and Texas as the only states devotees of this cultishly-loved burger chain can buy Animal-style double doubles. The location (In-N-Out’s 304th) opens this week in Medford, 200 miles south of Portland.

America’s bagel capital is up in arms. Murray’s Bagels has gone back on its famous ‘No Toasting’ policy infuriating New Yorkers. Bagel purists say toasting ruins the textural experience of something that’s already warm, and bagelries have even outright banned toasting. Owner Adam Pomerantz has said he doesn’t toast his bagels, but he tweeted that customer satisfaction is paramount and Murray’s will now toast on request. Oy vey.

And that’s today's Daily Dish. Thanks for watching. Stop by tomorrow for another helping.


Newsletter: In the Kitchen: Top 10 recipes from 2015 delivery that you cook

Now that the holidays are over, it’s back to our regular kitchen routines, albeit with some fresh resolutions — or maybe some new cooking gadgets. Thus it’s a good time to try a new recipe or two, or maybe to sample one of the new meal delivery services that are available online these days. Which is why we thought we’d bring you a lot of options, on both counts.

We’ve collected our 10 favorite recipes from the last year, either recipes we’ve asked for from area chefs or ones we’ve developed ourselves. If you tried them when the stories first came out, cheers to you if not, the new year is a good time to put them on your own menu. Or check out a menu that’s delivered to your door, in the form of a meal in a box from one of the eight services we’ve test-driven for you. Because online shopping these days means not only books and clothing and office supplies, but dinner.

Our top 10 recipes from 2015

Every year we pick 10 recipes from the last year that we really loved, recipes that we tested in the kitchen, sometimes a number of times, to get them just right. If we’ve come up with them ourselves, we try them out on each other, on the copy editors and writers in other sections, gathered around the stoves in the Test Kitchen. If we’ve gotten them from restaurants, we maybe go eat them again, and adjust the recipes with the help of the chefs who created them. Here are our 10 favorites — because with a good recipe, everybody’s kitchen is a Test Kitchen.

Home cooking, with drones!

Well, maybe that was a bit premature: Amazon isn’t delivering via drones quite yet, at least last we heard. But those boxes do come a lot faster than it takes a lot of us to make our way to and from the grocery store in L.A. traffic. Which brings us to our story about meal delivery services. We tried eight popular online delivery services — including Blue Apron and Purple Carrot — to see how easy it was to sign up, to order, to get and to make, and not least how their meals turned out on the plate.

More meals in small containers

Speaking of drones and meals in packages, the U.S. Army is looking for volunteers to eat its MREs (Meals, Ready-to-Eat), for a study. About 60 participants will chow down on provided rations for 21 days, then resume a normal diet for 10 days. Researchers will be looking at the meals’ impact on gut health, specifically the bacteria within the digestive system. Because there are many ways you can serve your country.

Your new favorite cookbook .

. is maybe not the newest chef’s farm-to-table cookbook, but a vegan cookbook called “The Taco Cleanse,” by four Austin, Texas, writers. It’s designed to help you replace every meal for a day, month or however long you choose, with a taco. So in place of a juice fast, you get a churro-waffle taco. And instead of the Master Cleanse, which involves lemon juice and cayenne pepper, try the “minor cleanse,” made with tequila and cayenne pepper. See what they did there?

Recipes for your New Year’s resolution

Many of us are trading — or trying to — the feasts, beasts and all those cookies for something slightly more healthful. Sigh. So if you’re looking to eat better, but you’re not looking forward to an endless parade of salads, we’ve got 26 recipes, each with less than 500 calories. And, happily, this includes red velvet cupcakes.

Newsletter: In the Kitchen: Top 10 recipes from 2015 delivery that you cook

Now that the holidays are over, it’s back to our regular kitchen routines, albeit with some fresh resolutions — or maybe some new cooking gadgets. Thus it’s a good time to try a new recipe or two, or maybe to sample one of the new meal delivery services that are available online these days. Which is why we thought we’d bring you a lot of options, on both counts.

We’ve collected our 10 favorite recipes from the last year, either recipes we’ve asked for from area chefs or ones we’ve developed ourselves. If you tried them when the stories first came out, cheers to you if not, the new year is a good time to put them on your own menu. Or check out a menu that’s delivered to your door, in the form of a meal in a box from one of the eight services we’ve test-driven for you. Because online shopping these days means not only books and clothing and office supplies, but dinner.

Our top 10 recipes from 2015

Every year we pick 10 recipes from the last year that we really loved, recipes that we tested in the kitchen, sometimes a number of times, to get them just right. If we’ve come up with them ourselves, we try them out on each other, on the copy editors and writers in other sections, gathered around the stoves in the Test Kitchen. If we’ve gotten them from restaurants, we maybe go eat them again, and adjust the recipes with the help of the chefs who created them. Here are our 10 favorites — because with a good recipe, everybody’s kitchen is a Test Kitchen.

Home cooking, with drones!

Well, maybe that was a bit premature: Amazon isn’t delivering via drones quite yet, at least last we heard. But those boxes do come a lot faster than it takes a lot of us to make our way to and from the grocery store in L.A. traffic. Which brings us to our story about meal delivery services. We tried eight popular online delivery services — including Blue Apron and Purple Carrot — to see how easy it was to sign up, to order, to get and to make, and not least how their meals turned out on the plate.

More meals in small containers

Speaking of drones and meals in packages, the U.S. Army is looking for volunteers to eat its MREs (Meals, Ready-to-Eat), for a study. About 60 participants will chow down on provided rations for 21 days, then resume a normal diet for 10 days. Researchers will be looking at the meals’ impact on gut health, specifically the bacteria within the digestive system. Because there are many ways you can serve your country.

Your new favorite cookbook .

. is maybe not the newest chef’s farm-to-table cookbook, but a vegan cookbook called “The Taco Cleanse,” by four Austin, Texas, writers. It’s designed to help you replace every meal for a day, month or however long you choose, with a taco. So in place of a juice fast, you get a churro-waffle taco. And instead of the Master Cleanse, which involves lemon juice and cayenne pepper, try the “minor cleanse,” made with tequila and cayenne pepper. See what they did there?

Recipes for your New Year’s resolution

Many of us are trading — or trying to — the feasts, beasts and all those cookies for something slightly more healthful. Sigh. So if you’re looking to eat better, but you’re not looking forward to an endless parade of salads, we’ve got 26 recipes, each with less than 500 calories. And, happily, this includes red velvet cupcakes.
